Rat's Tooth Concept Art- Cardoselli & Johns
Hats off to Alex Johns and Stefano Cardoselli!
These character studies were completed last fall, when Jeremy and I were doing the early work on the scripts. Stefano signed on for the Concept project and almost instantly began turning in beautiful work at a frightening pace. He picked up the feel of the world of Rat's Tooth amazingly quickly and really delivered the goods. Alex kindly volunteered some time to lay down the colors, and his soft and carefully chosen tones were just right, I thought, for Stefano's strong, European style. He also went a step further and added some creepy trees in the background, something that I really liked and which is becoming a Johns trademark.
The glee which we felt seeing these old friends step out of the dim, dusty corners of our imagination and onto paper is hard to quantify.
Hope you like em too.
