Y Ddraig Goch
Y Ddraig Goch, also known as the “Red Dragon”, was derived from the Great Red Serpent that had represented the Welsh god Dewi.
Designing The Red Dragon
Design considerations for the head, gestures, poses, and overall form-language of the dragon. I actually had to act out a few poses myself.
A shape-shifting water spirit inhabiting the lochs and pools of Scotland. Kelpies have the ability to transform themselves into non-equine forms, and can take on the outward appearance of human figures.
Designing The Kelpie
Similar process to exploring Y Draig Goch. I draw a lot of inspiration from science and from observing biomimicry.
The Stone Giants
I wanted to approach these a little differently. Being that they are entities formed from the very earth they live in, I wanted to embrace the natural formation of rocks — as opposed to the traditional humanoid golems.
Designing The Stone Giants
Sometimes I use silhouettes to check the design and visual read of objects, characters, and props.
