Armada - End of Year Film for ADA 2

 The film was inspired by the real life story of Fancesco de Cuellar, a Spanish soldier who survived being shipwrecked on the Sligo coast only to have to make a perilous trek across the ferocious Irish countryside, avoiding bloodthirsty locals and a vicious British cavalry.

It should be noted that the real story differs however from the end of the film. In real life Franceso de Cuellar survived many months on the run before finally returning to the safety of his homeland.

The film also contains a wonderful musical track composed and performed by Micheal Clarke.

Here is a number of concept sketches, character designs and final model sheets showing Franceso's clean cut and shipwreck torn looks.

Random Sketches- Law & Order:S.V.U

A group shot of the S.V.U cast.

Who doesn't love Munch?!

The idea was sort of "Law & Order: The Animated Series".

A quick rough of Stabler in action.

J.L.A. by Gaslight

This was a piece I worked on after I came across a toy series based on the Justice League. The premise is based on what they may look like if theyed
existed in the Victorian era of the "Gotham by Gaslight", a story drawn by Mike Mignola. I loved researching the clothing and costume from that period and would really like to work on some larger project sometime.
I was aiming for the sort of opaque, high contrast look you might see in old Victorian Era photography or posters.

Concept work of the Man of Steel himself.

Harold "Hal" Jordan, a peasant class inventor with dreams of soaring through space, now a emerald clad gentleman with the power to conjour anything.

Random Sketches- Heroes

"Save the cheerleader, save the world". This is an old concept sketch of Peter Petrelli, "the Dreamer" from the t.v. show HEROES.

Just some more concept work of the amazing Petrelli brothers from HEROES
