I recently worked on product development designs for Naruto which is an ongoing Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto. These are the only design sketches I'm allowed to show. It's funny how I finished illustrating a book project that was inspired by manga styling and then I get handed the opportunity to work on such a classic.
Nartuto is an amazingly successful brand and ongoing series. The artists on the project were just as amazing and fun to work with. Anyway, this is my basic film and product development sketching style for ideation and bluesky concepting. Michael Spooner was my artistic mentor in this technique and I still see his influence in my drawings and artistic vision.
