I Created this forum to show my current works and projects that were inspired by the Borderlands Universe.
Iv been working on a couple of Borderlands Inspired pieces for my portfolio. I am in my last year of college and I thought (and was recommended) that I should post it up on the forums for people to see and hopefully enjoy!
Ill be updating this forum as I create - so i hope you all enjoy my processes and ideas and my art that was inspired from this wonderful game and studio! =)
C&C Always Welcome
Here starts my first projects i started sketching for that i started about a month ago - Its a concept for a slag plant design. I noticed they have explosive, corrosive, fire and shock plants, but no Slag plants =O. SO i thought it would be a cool concept to try and create something that they haven’t actually created yet - there fore the Slag Plant Idea Was born:
Here was the first ever sketch idea that first started my thought on “Hmm, maybe a plant for a future environment would be cool” - I sketched this out on the subway. (this was originally an idea for an explosive plant - in which the bulbs, if shot, would explode into shards, or just explode)
I originally was thinking of creating a full set of plants for my project for school - I watched a documentary on plants and took some inspiration from some random flower around me as i drew outside - I Thought that maybe i would play with a couple new flower ideas for each element.
An idea for a new type of fire plant
I Started thinking more about corrosive plants and was playing with the idea of a slag plant when i drew up these - After watching a documentary and looking up some various plants i came across this type of orchid that had a giant sack - i figured “hey! that looks like a weird plant, something that would grow on Pandora - maybe hold corrosive acid - or even slag”. So i tried to play with the design and make it a bit more alien looking.
Playing with the corrosive and slag idea a bit more - figuring out how the plant would work, size, etc.
The last of my sketching pages - this is when i decided to fully commit to the single idea of a slag plant and put all my focus into designing up to 3 different designs for a single element.
Ill keep you updated with up coming ideas and design pages!
