DRIVECLUB 'CHANNEL 4' STORYBOARDS

Here are my initial storyboards for the Channel 4 Driveclub film that aired in the UK for the Playstation 4 launch weekend.
This is the Concept Art I did to help sell the idea and act as a guide for the art team.

DRIVECLUB 'TIME OF DAY' STUDIES



These were completed early on in the project to showcase the time of day system used in DRIVECLUB, I created the daytime comp over a white box screen shot and then completed the other two images.

DRIVECLUB VISUAL DEVELOPMENT



Here are a few Driveclub images I did very early on in the project to act as a Visual benchmark for where we wanted the game to be on release. The cars were built by the Vehicle team and were rendered in game, the backgrounds were created from photo reference with FX and a grading pass added to complete the images.

HULKBUSTER

 

Here's an early  paint over I did for the Hulkbuster short film, this was created to determine the amount of damage inflicted upon the suit as well as seeing what it would look like against an appropriate background. 

A wonderful 3D mesh by Anthony McGrath was used as a basis for this. More film details can be found here : https://www.facebook.com/ironmanmkz

ALIEN GIRL

I think I was influenced by a recent re-watch of Guardians of the Galaxy when I did this speed paint of an alien girl !

HULKBUSTER SHORT FILM

This Concept Art was done for a short film currently being made by Anthony McGrath and Mark Cushley, it features The Hulk being fought by Iron Man in his HulkBuster Armour. This was a dream picture to do and I'm currently working on more images which I'll share when I can, it's especially exciting to note that there's rumoured to be a similar face off in Marvels' Avengers : Age of Ultron movie due to come out next year !

The project homepage can be found here https://www.facebook.com/ironmanmkz  so please give it your support, head over there to check out animation tests and regular updates, the work going into this by these talented guys is truly fantastic and it's a thrill to be a part of.

STAR WARS : SITH DROID

Continuing the Star Wars thumbnails.....I used the Interrogation droid from Episode IV and Sith Probe Droid from Episode I as benchmarks to work from, the addition of legs echoes those seen on the b'omarr monk in Jabba's Palace !

STAR WARS : MASTER LUKE SKYWALKER

Another quick Star Wars concept, this time depicting Mark Hamill as an older Luke Skywalker as I imagine he may appear in Episode VII (..and using the Alec Guinness Obi Wan Kenobi as a guide)

STAR WARS : PRINCESS LEIA

Second Star Wars character, this time I thought I'd paint Classic Episode IV Princess Leia !
