Flight of the Pelicans

This is a personal project of mine and I plan to continue adding stuff to this page, more in depth production concepts, 3D sketching etc,  to expand the universe.

Exploring ship designs and putting it into a environment. It's very Porco Rosso inspired and a bit of Naausica with the ship. I love the idyllic Italian archipelago setting in Porco Rosso. This one was collaborated with the talented Hans "Hanzo" Steinbach, providing me with the foreground mechanic boy.

I modelled the sea plane during the process of learning Fusion 360, and made a quick test scene, rendered in blender, painted in photoshop. Airplane looks a bit too bulky compared to my original concept.

I took Jama's "Intro to 3D concept design" class on Learnsquared.com . Super informative class that opened up my eyes for 3D Coat as a 3d sketching tool using voxels. I took the chance to try it out on a plane design for FOTP that i had been playing around with, the flying goldfish! (although my wife thinks it looks more like a bird).

My first early sketches for the small attack / escort ships. I wanted them to be amphibian, to be able to land on water as I plan to have the story set around a few islands in the ocean. I want a steampunk retro-futuristic ww1 feel to the aircraft’s. So, steam driven machines and guns are very primitive, basically just normal rifles / machine-guns mounted on the planes.
