New Character Work
So in my ongoing effort to refine my body of work, I'm going to be switching to characters for a couple posts, in this case with some model paintovers. First up, a couple of post apocalyptic survivors. I wanted to see if I could get away from the 'mad max' look and try for something a little more utilitarian and plausable for a near future scenario. For a good but depressing read on a scenario like this , try 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy. ( actually, I think reading that got me thinking along these lines to begin with )
For the first character I pretty much knew what I wanted but for the 2nd guy I knew I wanted something a little crazier. I knew I wanted to incorporate license plates ( keeping with a theme of common items being used for survival purposes), but I wasn't sure how far to go with it..in the end I figured the most practical use for them was as a sort of a stab proof vest. There may be further guys appearing in this series if I think of anything good...
