Here I built one of my characters directly into the mood/style reference, just to get a taste for how it works in direct interplay. paperwalker.blogspot.com/2016/02/i-drive-car-i-want-to-drive.html   #CharacterDesign   #VisualDevelopment   #ConceptArt

I love to hijack Albert Bierstadt's sugary landscape paintings of the American West because of the excessive use of light and exuberant romanticism in them. These features work so well with my animation design work.

My brain kind of automatically produces certain shapes and colours which helps me a lot to save time and energy in visual development processes. On the contrary, working with intuition only easily can lead one to lack variety. So it became extremely important to me to constantly influence or inform my visual development work by adopting ideas from all kinds of references from the fields of industrial design, architecture, fine arts, photography, engineering etc.
