The Unknown Protagonist





Drawing Inspiration
Features an unknown protagonist.
A secret Artist, Who leaves little sketches for our hero to find.
These drawings act as a catalyst in the story.
In order to convey a fluid spontaneous 'sketch' style we had to develop a complementary parallel between the real and the stylised. Here are some of the many variations.
I will post more very soon.

nice stuff Kristian. I like the finished ones from the short film, they're very sculptural - yet with a good strong graphic feel at the same time. Your drawings always ooze character.
