I have been exploring the work of this illustrator/animation director recently and really taking a liking to his bold, colourful, surreal style. This is just one of his many illustrations. What I really like is the way he exaggerates certain aspects of the human form and also the way each of his paintings is almost a microcosm of narrative. Above is a prime example of this, entitled Abrah Ka Dabrah. Again I urge you to check out the rest of his work at www.stevescott.au if you like this kind of style also check out Laboca design house and Will Sweeney who all share the technique of using stark, bold lines and colours to depict slightly mind-bending subject matters. Also check out the latest music video for Birdy Nam Nam produced by Scott and Sweeney! It really is quite mental, but a brilliant rendition none the less, encorporating many different forms of animation from 3D to hand drawn. I really love the concept aswell!
These concept drawings are part of a Sci-fi story I have recently come back to, having laid out the foundations of the idea a few years ago. The first was made using Oils and the second using Inks. The inks helped to portray the clouds alot more effectively and eerily, but the oils did a better job of showing the ground details and tones. See what you think anyway, and don’t be scared! its just a story 🙂 The black cloud in the second image is meant to be a swarm of killer robots (nano robots) that fly! A scary concept if I do say so myself. Hopefully it will never take shape, unless its more like the robot Eva from Wall-e, who is awesome! 🙂
