DUSK | THE DEMON KING Concept Art

By Concept Art, Drawing, Graphic Art, Illustration, Maijin Artwork No Comments

I was contacted to work on animation project for a client, the client presented me with a concept design brief which outlined their vision for a dystopian alternate universe/world, but with no solid physical description of the characters, i was tasked to conceptualize both the protagonist (Nero) and ‘Dusk’ who will serve as the antagonist for the story. The client mentioned they would like for me to craft the characters in an “animated/anime style” to give the final art the most concise look for their animation team.

Dusk is a Demon King who is a revered warrior within his dark kingdom, therefore, i designed him with majestic royal armor and created a serpent-like logo for him which is branded in several places throughout the image. I also designed the brand stamped to his forehead which is a demon symbol to illustrate he is a true native of hell. I cant go into detail on what the skull on his scepter signifies yet per the clients request, but it is the skull-head of Dusk’s arch-nemesis which he parades around as a trophy.

There was different vision i had for Dusk based on the client’s instructions and i posted the early concept design sketches here DV1 Concept Sketches. take a look!

See the protagonist of the story here. Nero.

‘DV1 Concept Art Sketch + Color Comps’
These are iterations of a character i designed (anime-ish style) for a client commission which ended up not making the final cut of the cast of main characters for their animation project i was hired to work on. As you can see for each design i sent different color arrangements to offer different moods for the character.

They ended up choosing another version of the character i created which i will post next. You can also view the protagonist conceptual sketch character that was approved in my concept art portfolio.

Another early concept cartoon design rendering i completed a while back for a client who commissioned me for an animation project that is now in development.

The left iteration is the girl in her “street style” clothes and iteration on the right is the character in her ‘meta-human’ gear with her superpower glow in effect. I’m sure you noticed that mr teddybear got sick and tired of being in her backpack all day and somehow transformed into a superpowered¬† break-dancing robo-teddybear. LOL. thought it was a good idea. LOL

Ok. As you’ve read previously, im playing with a more animated style instead of my normal hyper-realism style. So only using flat/base color, core shadow, cast shadow, and highlights…was going for a simple cel-animation style. If you missed the other character i designed for the same project, see B.O.I. character animation painting

This is version 2 of an early cartoon animation concept art i completed a while back for a client who commissioned me for an animation project that is now in development. You will see from my upcoming works that I am taking on more projects which allow me to play around with different styles instead of my normal hyper-realism style. With this character, it is only using flat/base color, core shadow, cast shadow, and highlights…was going for a simple cel animation style.

Oh! I also did a little girl concept character and will release that in the next few days. Thanks for viewing and share with your friends!
