The Monju Hunter - Concept Art

You can watch it online on:

The character design I've made for our short movie 'Monju Hunters of Sōfugan Island'. The film is a co-production with my buddy Karim Eich. We finished the project in fall 2016 after 1,5 years of hard work. It's my master thesis at Bauhaus University Weimar.

As we were only two individuals who worked on that movie for so long, it was necessary to switch between many different tasks and work on different projects at the same time. Thus it was not possible to me to finalize every single concept and I realized a lot of work directly in 3d with ZBrush.
