Adam Kuczek - concept art & matte painting
Hi, my name's Adam and I'm a freelance concept artist and matte painter, working primarily in film industry. In this thread I'll be posting some of my artworks, mostly personal projects done in free time. If you're interested and want to see some more, feel free to check out my portfolio at http://www.ak-art.net
For start, a series of concepts from a personal project of mine, that's been in developments for some years now. More to come...
General overview of futuristic Shanghai, where the story takes place. The idea is to mix the old, stone architecture and traditional elements, like gates or monuments, with vast scale and futuristic additions.
Search in progress
Scene from the script - ZEN troopers ('soldiers' of a large corporation ZEN Technologies) are searching through Purgatory - the lowest part of megalopolis, partially beneath the city streets, in order to recover the stolen module. Of course, they fail and the main hero has to be called into service.
ZEN Troopers exploration
Some designs for ZEN troopers. Just like with the architecture, the idea was to make them sf-looking with strong Eastern influences, visible mostly in the outfits/armor.
A couple of heavy weapons, where it's more about functionality and firepower than fancy design. One is actually a modified factory tool. These weapons are in use on image 'Search in progress'.
At some point in the story, the main protagonists are busted in their safe house. However, they can handle themselves, mostly due to an efficient machine gun and a couple of electro-magnetc motion-sensor explosives planted around the apartment (in case the opponents have cybernetic enhancements or are pure androids).
