Dredd

Saw me some Dredd 3D last night. Gotta say I really enjoyed it. I was pleasantly surprised how close they kept to the comic in terms of not only the character and world, but also the bleak ethos.

Personally I liked the Judge Dredd design. The helmet was true to the icon comic version, while the rest of the costume brought the character a certain believability. It was a great proof of concept. I just hope they can get enough at the box office to do a sequel. A TV show wouldn’t go amiss actually.

If I was to have one criticism it is that Karl Urban was a little on the short side for my liking. I always think of Dredd as being tall and lean. With a more pronounced jaw also. Still, it was definitely good enough to inspire me to knock out this pic.

I’ve been lucky enough to get work on an exciting new film production being made here in Queensland, Australia. The 34th Battalion is about the exploits of a Australian soldiers on the western front in the Great War. Above you can see the initial teaser poster and two pieces of concept art I have worked on. More will follow and you can find out more about this fine production on their website.

“Jonathan Brown and his close friends, whose lives are full of family and commitments, are faced with a call of duty. A recruitment march has found its way to their small town. Jonathan’s decision is full of heartbreak and regrets. He will carry those with him through the war.

A gritty and powerful window into the past, Jonathan’s story brings a personal and human element to the concept of war. How will this gentle and kind man survive the horrors of the Western Front? How will he return?”
