Studies for Final Project



Here's one study each of the two concepts I'm stuck between for my final project. I like the focus on the protagonist in the top one, but maybe it's easier to tell what's going on in the second one...?

Playing with filters for class exercise. First is about 6 different ones, starting with an original image. Second is just a blank document with filters.

Sketch for Project 3


Pop culture is a huge inspiration for me and so is mythology, so when the two are combined I get SUPER inspired! I recently rewatched season 3 of Teen Wolf with a friend and the nogitsune arc is totally creepy. Their nogitsune is a combination of several different kitsune myths from my culture (probably nogitsune + ninko + kukan kitsune), and I think they did a really good job with it.

Kitsune (it's the word for "fox", but it has two contexts) are a huge part of Japanese mythology - they're tricksters, guardians, and deities. Nogitsune are malevolent kitsune and ninko are kitsune that can only be seen when they're possessing a host. Kukan kitsune are "void" elemental spirits. Teen Wolf's combination of these three turned out really cool! It was definitely a great villain for the season.
