Fighters on Nobody's Land
Realistic character and prop design with sci-fi/post-apocalyptic theme and dieselpunk aesthetic as main focuses. This is one of the most complete projects I have worked on as part of my Concept Art course on Lightbox Academy (Madrid, Spain) and I'm proud of all the hard work behind it.
In a society that is plagued by climate change and a brain rotting virus, Kray is a soldier that leaves the security of his city to look for his family after his father is kicked out of the safe zone due to a corruption scandal. He's a survivor that must face the dangers on nobody's land to find his loved ones.
Design process for Kray's character.
Full character sheet for my dystopian/dieselpunk soldier Kray, and the main antagonist on his journey to find his family outside the safety of the city.
Kray's plasma bullet weapon is a long-range gun he got before he deserted the security force. It needs constant refrigeration to make sure the high energy matter inside the shells stays stable enough to be handled. This is achieved through the refrigeration system on the shoulder pad and monitored thanks to the gauntlet, where it locks into shooting position.
Mahla is more of a tough cookie that only has her community's survival in mind, so I designed a couple of modified survival knives for her to use as close-range weapons on short patrols.
Render for Mahla.
