Once More Unto The Beat
Album art I created for Jason Battersby. search for a more ethical music source at your own discretion. There's some great tunes on this! Jason added cool a little VHS filter to the final art but I don't have that file so you'll have to settle for the original file.
I do remember I was thinking a lot about Yoshitaka Amano's Final Fantasy art while creating this, with a nod to the insanity of Nomura's costume design of course, but I think that's where it faulters. I'm am not very good a creating coherent colour schemes. You can even spot a nod to Gustav Klimt in some of the pattern design. I realise the futility of throiwing out these names in relation to my own work, but if it inspires anybody to check out these artists it's a pretty good result.
I have a little more in-progress material to show.
Some rough costume tests.
Digital character design test.
It's almost incomprehensible but this is concept art for the beast.
Finally, Here's an alternative design concept where I attempted to make the image look like an anime still, complete with additional translator's note.
