Based on the Story Sir Gawain and the Green Knight with a twist in theme: 1920s Gangster, Viking or Samurai. I choose Samurai/Video Game as I've never tackled drawing one before. This is confrontation scene, before they enter the forest where Gawain will fight the final boss, the Green Knight.
This was our first BFA project in Fall 2010. Our assignment was given by alumni working at ILM. Boardtrack racing was an old sport that was eventually banned in the 1930s. Our assignment was to design 3 characters, story moments, and a prop. My main character is a former racer turned mechanic with a wooden leg. He has become bitter from being unable to race anymore and slowly distancing himself away from his friends and girlfriend.
Still need to revise the rest of the character sheets and story moments.
We were given several old trucks to choose from to design on top of. I chose this truck and turned it into a Ramen Truck. This was also a fun project to to work on. I had fun referencing the ramen cart in Japan. In fact I used photos from my own experience eating at one.
