Buildings and costumes

I've been playing with the costume and now I have a whole mess of variations in my head with no idea as to which one I like best. I'll have to draw them all up and have a look at them all together.
So anyway, here are a few costume sketches:

And I've been working on some more background concept art. I think I'll do the backgrounds with ink, markers, watercolours and acrylics.

This snowy one is HEAVILY referenced from this photo here:

I was highlighting things in this with white acrylic paint and when I did a few rooftiles it looked like snow and I ended up with it snowing. Badly snowing, too much snow, it's hard to see the buildings. But still kind of nice, I think.

This one is heavily referenced from this photo:

Alexis! All of this concept looks sooo beautiful! I can't wait to hear what you film is about and everything. I really need to start doing more concepts...I'm also starting to think I might do half watercolour half digital do all my backgrounds in watercolour but the phoenix in digital so he's really bright...not sure yet. These all look great! Especially the shots of Paris, beautiful!

Gorgeous work, Lex. I'm really loving the way the look of this film is going!
