After some initial work was done by the Production Design team, myself and my team then handled all creature and effects designs for the show. All the designs were meant as a tribute to the wonderful Miyazaki movies, as that was the Director’s inspiration as well.
I was especially pleased with the dragon design as this was a last minute addition and was a sequence added well after production had wrapped. I produced the initial sketches for the dragon, which then were worked up by the team and handed over to VFX.
We will be adding more concepts later this week, including a look at our development work on the Kirin.
Huge thanks to Christian Manz and Universal.
