Future Sentinel designs for X-Men: Days of Future Past film. With talented folks at MPC and direction from Virginie Bourdin and VFX Supervisor Richard Stammers, I was responsible for the design of future Sentinels.
The design process involved using replicator method in Luxology's Modo - I was creating moving patterns based on reference provided to the team by director Bryan Singer.
I've also went through several design passes to explore different avenues for the look of the sentinels. With help of other artists from MPC, we looked more closely at the shape language of the sentinels. Below you can see more successful examples of masculine vs feminine shapes.
Most sentinel development efforts were put into creating variations of approved general shape and pattern language. We also looked at different ways the sentinel would animate its body parts for different functions. Opening head to attack, animating arm into drill, etc.
