More 2nd year work

This is a turn around for a character I produced for my major project. Shes a space Valkyrie! Had a lot of fun creating the designs for her. An unusual approach but I learnt so much! I bought a shape theory DVD from massive black which was a huge help and taught me lots. Andrew Jones has become a massive inspiration in my work. Good stuff =) I recommend it to anyone interested in concept art and illustration!

After going nuts on these designs I realised the whole point in designing this character was to make it in 3d. I cant say there wasn't a point where I wondered how on earth I'd go about this but I was having so much fun designing that I wouldn't let the doubting 3D artist in me take over. Eventualy I managed to think about what parts of the design worried me the most and came up with some solutions. I'll be posting the finished 3D version soon.

Below is the Valkyrie characters hover bike. Also had a lot of fun designing this. When I get into the swing of dispalying my artwork on this blog I'll probably end up posting all the crazy variations and weird contraptions that existed before it was finalised as a bike. I tried to keep some bold Norse influences into mind at all times when designing this.
