Flightposite II BLK/GLD

The most inspiring design in balling sneakers i picked up were at Nike Town NYC 1997. 
Since wearing them out I've managed to get my hands on another pair. (Above)

So inspired by the design and material of the shoe I wanted to design a character that appeared if it  were to be made of the same materials and style used on the shoe. (Below)  

Unsure as to whether I'm going to make it organic or bionic. Surrealist form of the Anatomy will defiantly be the defining characteristic in this piece.


Cosmic Slop - Redman - Dare Iz A Dark Side 


Inspired by Flight Club, the smooth flow of a showboater.

The second image was originally drawn without as many arms. 

Casting back to University Life Drawing class, the Model would hold a pose giving you five minutes to capture the figure on paper. Then she would adjust the position of her arms every two minutes giving motion to your work.

I loved to draw like that, forcing you to plan your work ahead, allowing space and depth to judge the position of the next arm movement.

Getting back to the Android Baller with a crazy cross.

Should he have as many arms?

Should he be bouncing the ball so fast that he appears to have as many arms?

These will be answered in the colouring process, coming soon…


Ballin' for a Pose

So I have a few Ideas that I would like to cross Basketball with some surrealism/futurism, with maybe some cool robot stuff...

But first I gotta get the pose right. 

So here are some loose sketches to try and visualise what I'm trying to get at.

I'll get back with some progress soon...
