A demo for FZD school of design. Feng had assigned me Conan, he asked me to explore the IP based on the original books. During the first week I did some research into the IP, set up some guides for myself then did a bunch of sketches for Stygia and Aqualonia. I used as many sketch methods to produce as many sketches as I could to show students how they could approach it and the volume of exploration we were expecting for an IP in a fictional world. Once I had a direction for my shots and locations I presented them to Feng.
This one was a struggle for me getting into the character of King Conan, couldn't have gotten it to where it is without Feng's feedback. This was done some time around 2019 Christmas so once we got the design I took some time to paint this one up.
