I was a Lead Character designer on Season One of ARCHER on FX and instrumental in the design of the characters, props, and vehicles for the show.
I lead a team of artists to create all the assets needed for our assigned episodes. After creating the assets, we would make animation tests to direct the animators on how to use the 2D digital models for their scenes.
Though we used actual models to aid in the creation of our characters, I pushed our designs to be reminiscent of the work of people like Alex Toth, John Romita, and John and Sal Buscema to help sell our faux time period we set the show in.
In addition to being a design lead for the show, I would help with storyboarding or painting backgrounds as needed, since Episode 01.
Bonus Original Drawing for Archer, in the original pitch When it was still being called Codename Duchess, we based the look of Archer on Clive Owen.
