Genghis Khan 3

HEY GANG!!! Sorry I took so long in between posts, I've been extremely busy these past couple weeks with work, and work, and work and what not, but I DID however get the chance to knock out a couple Genghis sketches after(you guessed it) work today. I figured I'd post them up here for you guys to see, and to also down play that on going roomer inside of my own head that keeps on telling me I'm lazy! :p
Ok now this pic gives away a lot about the story in one of my two short film ideas, but I'm not sure if it's quite transparent enough for anyone on here to even figure it out. I was trying to get more exaggerated and expressive with the Character this time around...

...By the way, I've keep up the John K lessons and homework over the past few weeks as well but I don't really feel like dominating my Blog with replicas of other peoples work, so I think I'm going to stop posting them on here...

Maybe I'll do one last post a week or two from now showing all of my progress with the Preston Blair books and then I'll be done with it, not really sure.

Genghis Khan 2

I had a lot of fun trying to come up with Thug Designs for the Genghis Film. I was going more for fun and appeal than trying to be "historically accurate", so I came up with a vast array of goof ball characters as you'll see bellow...

This guy was based VERY ruffly on the Mel Gibson Character from Brave Heart...but at a certain point in his design I thought it would be more fun to make him a dog mannered cannibal instead!

This Drawing is still ruff and unfinished, but I still dig it for it's whole "monstrous presence"...
This Thug design was influenced a little by the Fleischers' old cartoon style, and somewhat by Bob Clampett's Indian Joe cartoon. Believe it or not I was kind of thinking Dragon Slayer when I designed this guy...Dirk
I think this guy was in a Sub Way commercial...
Ok with this guy, I had done so many Fleischer influenced designs here that I figured I'd just go all out with it on this dude... I call him Bruno the Primate! :p
