Knife Designs

Early last year I created some concept art for a feature film. Unfortunately the prop I worked on has since been cut from the story, but I’m able to share it here with you.

The first three images were quite general explorations to get a feel for what the director wanted. I enjoyed thinking about the ‘why’ of each knife – why it was created, why it was made of that material, why there was decoration (or not).

There’s a page of quick rock studies, as the knife was to have been placed in a stone.

After I received feedback from the director I developed the ‘plain’ knife option further, extending the blade and creating different options for the hilt and sheath. These can be seen in the last few images below.

I would have liked to develop the knife further still, but (irritatingly) the story is better without it!
