Unofficial Pre-Production Art for the JC Film



Here are a couple of my armor designs for Tars Tarkas for the 2005 version of the John Carter of Mars film. It incorporated makeshift protection from found objects and salvaged armor parts. I studied some of the Samurai and other tribal knot tying techniques and included them as a way to latch and bind various parts together with sinew, found textile or a kind of plant fiber.
