Today, I wanted to write about the importance of fan art. For the past couple of weeks, I've decided to do a mini project for my concept design portfolio. After meeting with a Creative Director here in St. Louis, he expressed some interest in my character design process. He suggested that I choose two pop culture icons and merge them together to make something new and exciting. So, I chose the hit television show Empire (Fox) and the global titan, Star Wars. With my passion for concept art, I feel this was a cool and interesting way to show my creative range and digital painting skills.
The significant aspects for the doing this project:
- Reaching a larger audience and demographic utilizing my design skills.
- Re envisioning beloved characters within a new genre.
Let's dive into it! I present to you "Lyon's Empire."
I hope you guys enjoyed my character designs! Feel free to share this blog post on Facebook!
Stay tuned for future blog post.
