Pacific Rim Ripper Development

Here is some of the visdev for the Ripper creatures in PR Uprising. Was a really interesting process developing these, we started with black and white thumbnails to get some graphic reads and then progressed with the design with the production team. These sketches had to be done very quickly because we were on a tight schedule at the time- there were some kitbash pieces used in the creation.
The director was inspired by the creatures from Edge of Tomorrow, and their perpetual motion- so we tried to convey a similar sort of motion with these.
