Cloth­ing de­sign and func­tion­al­ity

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Giv­ing my character sport­ing ac­ces­sories con­trasts nicely with her leather jacket. I give her studs un­der her shoes and some pro­tec­tion on her trousers, to make her hov­er­board ride more com­fort­able. The knee pads, gloves and her mask rep­re­sent the peak of her per­sonal tech­nol­ogy: I paint them red to draw at­ten­tion to this fact, but don’t overdo their de­sign.

Tat­toos with a dif­fer­ence

Her tat­toos are el­e­ments that evoke a lit­tle mis­chievous spirit. They de­pict geo­met­ric rep­re­sen­ta­tion and sym­bols. I like to think that this par­tic­u­lar sci-fi fu­ture world has its ba­sis in math­e­mat­ics. I use colours to in­di­cate the character’s play­ful spirit. The red mark on her fore­head hints at a cos­mopoli­tan state of mind and so­ci­ety in gen­eral.
