ERAGON creeps



Here are some creature designs I did for the feature film adaptation of the popular fantasy novel, ERAGON back in 2005...I got called in specifically to take a pass at the RA'ZAC, ringwraith-like meanies who pursue the boy hero.  The major brief from director Stefen Fangmeier was to avoid visual parallels to the Lord of the Rings villains, so I took them in another direction.  This was a fun bit of design work, and the last bit of pure freelance that I did before I started work on WALL-E in the beginning of 2005...
