Concept artist Michael Asquith shares his Kandar the Destroyer concept art from Ash vs Evil Dead season 3, created from a clay maquette then rendered in 3D. Really amazing work. Check it out!
By mid-season we started hearing rumors about a gigantic demon that would appear in the final episode. Rick Jacobson, the director of episodes 9 and 10, took a shining to a maquette I had done for another unused creature. Some changes were requested (breasts and tongue were removed and a jaw was added). I finalized the design in a large clay maquette that was scanned using photogrammetry. A 3D model was derived by Kris Slagter, with whom I worked to complete a more refined ZBrush sculpt on a tight TV deadline. I designed a color scheme and painted initial textures that Kris worked into with Mari. I then rigged Kandar in Maya ready for the talented animation team at Flux who also rendered and comped all the shots.
