Greetings! I come from a far, distance, futuristic, present day science fictiony place... Part 2

Greetings once again! I hope you are well in what ever you are doing and where ever you are.

Welcome to part two of the Paradise Aliens character design update. Incidently you can follow Paradise Aliens on Twitter: @ParadiseAliens

Let's meet another character from this movie. 'Erinyes' is a Bounty Hunter with a wild and somewhat unstable side. She rescues 'Hunter', from his old life and he becomes her butler as they do jobs together.

Unlike Hunter, who's look was already pre-designed, her concept was one that was done from scratch. There is some test footage of the movie out there and a photo of the current actress in a previous costume but Chris Pinches wanted her outfit to be a throw back to the 1950s Sci Fi films - minus the big glass bubble helmet.

Here is an alternative colour scheme for her outfit:

...and below is the test footage of the current actress and the original outfit.

Greetings! I come from a far, distance, futuristic, present day science fictiony place... Part 1

As mentioned in a previous post I have been working for Entanglement Productions on some character designs for the pre-production movie: 'Paradise Aliens'. I was commissioned to create and draw 5 characters - A Bounty Hunter called 'Erinyes', her butler 'Hunter', a geeky girl mechanic called 'Stella', a psychotic killer robot called 'No Rules' and 1 one two Alien Bodyguards who protect 'No Rules'.

I have a big soft spot for Sci Fi so this commission was a joy to work on and challenging also. I couldn't go to town on the designs too much as this is (currently) a low budget production so people in suits and outfits that could be put together as cheap as possible but still look good were required.

I shall break this update into 5 parts for easy digest and to start with I shall introduce you to: Hunter

 This character originates from the WIld West era which is why he is dressed the way he is as well as why he carries an old fashioned pistol. Don't be fooled by the umbrella though - since he was picked up by Erinyes and gotten involved in a more technological environment not all is what it seems.

Green fingers (and no not from picking your nose)

I recently did a caricature commission for someone's birthday present. A yoga loving Rock Chick!
Birthday present commission - "Yoga loving Rock Chick"

After this had made it's rounds on Facebook (ain't social networking great!) I was emailed by a lady who works as a Garden Landscaper who wanted a caricature of herself for a logo for her business which would also but put on the side of her van.

How could I say no?

So I set to work and made this little jem:
"Thank you so much for your hard work and will pass your number on and tell lots of my customers all about you and your website.

Best Wishes Jayne x"

There will be text added to this by someone else but I look forward to seeing a photo of said logo very soon.

Perks of my job #1:

Visiting unopened premises.

The premises in question - the new Library Of Birmingham. Due to open in September 2013.

The new Library Of Birmingham.

I've seen the outside already, today I saw the inside and wandered about the two terraces and peeked in the Shakespere room. 

One word - FANTASTIC!

Took photos for inspiration - but am not allowed to share them.  Stay tuned for updates on this project at a later date.
