Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers: Concept Art

As promised, below is a small selection of my concept art from the Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers (see previous post to view trailers).

As you can see, the project required concept art on a number of different subjets including character design, prop and environment design, and my favorite; weapon design.

Fruit Ninja Origins Trailers: Complete

Here is the full set of Fruit Ninja trailers I worked on for most of 2013 with the People’s Republic of Animation and Halfbrick. As far as I can remember, this was the first time in my career where I took on a role that was not exclusively art related (though I did also produce much of the concept art for these – I plan to post some of this soon).

I co-wrote and co-directed the first trailer, “Ninjas in training,”  with the director of the 2 year anniversary trailer from the previous year. When it came time to tackle the other three, I was given the opportunity to write the stories mostly on my own, under the guidance of the Halfbrick team.

Thanks to a great team of artists and animators who had my back the whole time, it seems as though I managed not to mangle these too badly. Judge for yourself.
