Always have an escape plan...

This week, we're going to take a detailed look at the escape pod airlock and the massive cargo bay.  Again, I wanted the Nobleman's ship to feel big and excessive to the point of there being wasted space, which is why I left the cargo bay empty.  He's so rich he doesn't need to haul any cargo and has plans to convert this area into a ballroom.

Stay tuned!!

The life of the New Nobility...

Last week we took a look at the exterior of our Nobleman's ship.  This week we're diving inside to have a detailed look at the ship's Bridge.

After finishing the character designs I went back and re-read the script so I could get an idea of what exactly needed to be designed when it came to the sets.  You can see the results above in the post. You can't truly understand the sheer amount of work that goes into any of your favorite anime productions until you actually set out to do something on your own.  Our "one shot" is only 10 minutes long and still there are a tremendous amount of designs that need to be done.  It really puts into perspective the mind blowing amount of work that goes into one episode, let alone an entire series.  Keep coming back for more and if you like what you see, share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr etc..  The more the merrier!

The Rich live big...

I know I know, I promised I wouldn't miss any more weeks.  In my defense, I enjoyed myself a little too much on new year's eve and completely forgot to make a post last week.  Without any further delay here's the much anticipated Nobleman's ship:

I tried to make it big yet still made it look like it could be fast.  I pulled reference from many different sources, including racing boats, catamaran style yachts and even the space shuttle.  After that it was all my own imagination.  If I had the chance I would go back and design the ship before designing the interior.  I felt a little too constrained by my original interior designs since they were completed first.  So far this project has been a great learning experience!  Next week we'll dive inside so stay tuned, let's start the new year off on a roll!!!
