Costume Design - Dersu

all images © Richard Collingridge 2008-12
At university, I made a picture book called 'Dersu of the Arctic', Loosely Based on the Book 'The Hunter', by Vladimir Arsenyev and the film 'Dersu Uzala' directed by Akira Kurosawa.
My version plot wise was similar to the film but I set it in the Arctic instead of Serbia, mainly because I wanted to draw a polar bear.
Later on, when learning to use my Wacom tablet, I decided to do character designs...and Dersu was one of them.

I've got quite a lot of work at the moment that I would like to showcase, but not quite sure how to order it all. My own site is probably the best way but I don't get to update it as much as I would like to be honest!

I think in the future I'll start to do tutorials on this blog as I think there are fundamental things that could be put across a lot easier than they are at schools, so look out for that in the future.

But as for this, I just wanted to put up a lot of my sketches, so follow the link if you want to see!

Vehicle Design: Japanese Marine Special Corps.
The inspiration behind the style of the Ship was the way the Batmobile armours up in the original Tim Burton Batman film (with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson).
