Techno Baroque

Was invited to be a part of a project a friend has in the works merging tech & the baroque. As a fan of the 1984 Dune film aesthetic & artists like Juan Gimenez, I jumped at the chance & started developing this alien species. Will add to their culture & planet as time allows.

The first image is an environmental concept shows off the homeworld, architecture inspired by baroque, artdeco, and a touch of Southeast Asia.

Second image shows off one of the alien species environmental pods, allowing the ambassador to survive on planets that do not share their same biological needs

Third is a rough painting showing off a forest on the planet. Worked to find recognizable shapes in the plants, but with a few surprises.

And the fourth image shows the thought that went into the shape language, symbols and patterns that make up the planet's visual language.
