Concept Sketch: Inspiration Sketch



Here's a quick inspiration sketch to start my thinking process on this project. I am trying to blur the line somewhat between the biological and the mechanical in this piece. To hopefully indicate this I will be using combinations of host internal organs, grown biologicals and fabricated parts, combined through a variety of construction and assembly solutions. At this point I am looking for an alien organism/machine that is advanced, efficient, lightweight, agile, quick and graceful. The function of this thing will probably be some type of alien soldier/weapon.

Concept Sketch: Early Shocktroop



Here's another pass on the design. Some possible types of materials that could be used might be flexible cell fiber bioglass, muscle tissue grown/cloned inside porous metal molds, organs from other animals that would be transplanted and/or genetically altered to possibly provide energy storage or maybe high tolerance to hostile conditions, advanced computing systems to provide network capability between units, host thinking organs(brains) to provide decision making skills and individuality.

Coloring WIP: Shocktroops Shot Design



I decided to post this image at this stage because I believe at this point more time and noodling with the piece would pull it past a shot concept and more into the realm of an illustration piece.

Concept Sketch: Shocktroop Redesign



After taking a good look at what I had done previously I decided to push and fine tune the entire character. This is a quick study toward the character redesign.
