An assignment for Advanced Illustration, in which we paired off and acted as art directors for each other, making up assignments based on our strengths and weaknesses. My assignment was to do two views of the room of a preexisting character.
I chose Tendo Choi from Pacific Rim! I felt like he had a very strong aesthetic, but as a minor character wasn’t touched on enough for my project to just become a reiteration of canon. I used the base of the Hong Kong barracks, for which I drew from both WWII barracks and college dorms, and then added details that I felt fit Tendo.
It was really difficult doing interior drawings, which I’m not super familiar with, as well as trying to emulate the drab-plus-bright-color-lighting that was a big part of Pacific Rim, but it was a really fun exercise and I feel I learned a lot from it!
