A Fist Full Of Blood - Bandit/ Scavenger Verious Costume Designs

Scavengers who you don't want bump into on your own, generally living in abandoned buildings or underground. They are a bit behind most people in the world staying away from towns and markets, bandits look similar but are often seen in towns and markets but wear the same sort of clothes.

A Fist Full Of Blood - House And Market Concept Art

These types of homes are usually found far into the desert, normally made of wood or metal and some times bones with cloth attached with silk or string. walls are also made the same way normally as protection from sand storms or to divide sections. The image on the far right is of a single market stall on its own, constructed next to an destroyed building.

A Fist Full Of Blood - Female One costume Designs

Still working on names at the moment, one of the females in drakes gang.
names I'm thinking about choosing - Scarlett, Charlotte, Sasha, Nichole, Alexis, Carly, Red.

A Fist Full Of Blood - Mr. Charles Costume Designs

Mr. Charles is an Englishmen who once was a boxer but due to a fractured skull he had to quit and has to wear specially made goggles (being designed) to support his head. He's the muscles of the group supporting Lawrence in any situation.

A Fist Full Of Blood - Lawrence Drakes Costume Designs

A Fist Full Of Blood - Hover Bike Design One

A Fist Full Of Blood - Desert Drone Designs

A few designs on the drones which survived the reset but still monitor the areas they were designed to keep safe which after the reset is mainly vast wasteland areas. They will kill on site any trespassers.

A Fist Full Of Blood - Quick Environment Paintings

Six quick paintings of the possible environment, most of them pretty much depict after the reset but the top right one shows a ship being used as a bar. this wouldn't be the total colour pallet and the final scenery will have newly built stuff on  top of the previous existence. for example there would be a wooden bridge built across the broken one in the top left, which I could go into further detail showing this with more colour.

Minor Project - Hovering Vehicles

Podracers were small, one-man repulsorcraft, composed of an anti-gravity pod propelled by one or more pairs of large turbine engines. The engines were not physically connected to each other, being linked instead by power couplings consisting of plasma discharges. The engines were connected to the pods themselves by means of long, Steelton cables. 

Podracing was a popular sport in the less-developed regions of the galaxy and was one of the most dangerous sports ever invented. Racers losing their lives during competitions was commonplace.

Turbine engines or anti gravity seems to be a good direction for a futuristic hover bike, I was thinking before the apocalypse a hover vehicle was a real luxury to have and only the rich had one. After the reset, all hover vehicles pretty much destroyed accept a few either by being rebuilt with different parts or kept safe underground.

Minor Project - Research Into Asteroid Hitting Earth

The game is set in a post-apocalyptic near future, following the impact of the asteroid 99942 Apophis on Earth. The game has been described as similar to the movie Mad Max 2 and to video games such as Fallout and Borderlands.

In Rage's story, the asteroid 99942 Apophis impacts the Earth on August 23, 2029, leaving few survivors. Human survivors have come together to form settlements around oases and other practical or habitable locations, including race tracks. These fragile homes are diligently defended by the inhabitants against bandits and mutants, which are divided into various gangs and organizations of their own.

Now I was looking at using the asteroid 99942 Apophis but it is to soon in date so I started  to look into future possible asteroid hitting earth and found one called 1999 RQ36. The asteroid could hit earth in the year 2182 which is more around the time I want, but also has a chance to hit earth between now and 2200 giving me the choice of time in which hits earth.

The impact from the asteroid that created the famous Chicxulub crater in Mexico would have caused 'mega-tsunamis' many thousands of feet high.

It is believed that this asteroid led to the extinction of the dinosaurs!

Minor Project - Motion Comic Taste

Just a quick painting on what the final motion comic could look like, this roughly took about 20 minutes to do. The scene is when Law is being interrogated for the where's about of an important item.

Minor Project - Possible Apocalypses

Now the only reason an apocalypse is in my motion comic story is to explain why the world is the way it is, it isn't the centre of the story in the slightness nothing more than a "reset" really.

The world is set in the future of 2174, so theres hovering vehicles, drones, futuristic weapons but once the reset happens it looks like 18th - 19th century but with technology still being around looking rusty'n'old or broken.

On the Mind map the words in small are just ones I've thought be seriously doubt having any part in the story whereas the ones quite large will most likely do.

I was thinking a killer flu outbreak happens and kills 89% only leaving the immune which over a certain amount of years rebuild the world to which it looks like a western.

Or a massive world war breaks out destroying most of the world before a deadly virus is released killing most the humans what are left, causing a restart in the world but still having certain technology.

Or simply a massive meteorite hits the planet causing most the wipe and the scenery needed to look like a massive western.

Or a massive world war is waging and the meteorite hits causing the same outcome as above but with countries against each other after the outcome.

Or a world war of humans versus robots, the humans win but at a great cost of the human population and the world itself.

Or the Ozone layer is destroyed by the sun causing the planet to become a desert wasteland, were technology still exist but humans are restarting in the damaged world.

Minor Project - Early Lawrence Drake Costume Design

Continuing from Character design from last year, I have decided to make Law a few years younger with a completely different personality. His farther now being what he was previous, Law shows traits of free will, charm, womaniser, passion for gun fights and money, arrogant, great love for whiskey and always at least carrying 5 guns on him.

Not focusing to much on characters at the moment, mainly working on the world but though I'd post this instead of it lost on my laptop.

Also debating the name at the moment, I like what it was called - A Fist Full Of Knives but this time not really focused on knives so needs to be changed slightly to some think like;

A Fist Full Of  Gold
A Fist Full Of Bullets
A Fist Full Of Treasure
A Fist Full Of Desire
A Fist Full Of Guns
A Fist Full Of Blood

Minor Project - Motion Comic Rough Script

The names used other than Pharrell, Mr. Charles and Lawrence are not final, just temps, also this is more about whats spoken and sceanary than camera postioning.

Minor Project Initial Proposal

Motion Comic Research

So for the Minor project I have decided to go with my character design idea, for this I want to do a motion comic of the story I have planned. I have been looking at a few various motion comics for style and how the animated parts come across, out of these ones The Uncharted motion comic has the style I like the most with its dark but vibrant colour scheme. (I will soon post rough story and script of my motion comic idea)
