Strange Behavior (Illustration) Entry: Jesse Sandifer

Latest Update: Final Image: final render


I’m actually entering this both in the Animation category and the Illustration category. Here’s my concept:

The rock character is sculpting away at himself a chunk at a time in an effort to not look so rough and crumbly. He just wants to be seen as polished and new and to have that certain sparkle that the sphere seems to have. The ironic part of this is that there’s no possible way to completely sculpt himself into that sphere because his whole foundation would have to go as well as his arms and face, etc. The moral of the story is that sometimes it can be self-destructive to try and be something we’re not. Kinda cheesy, but I thought it might be a “strange” way to illustrate that concept.

More to come…
