Fairy Tale Modernised
The aim of this brief was to choose an existing fairy tale and contemporise it. The fairy tale I chose was Jack and the Beanstalk and illustrating it in a futuristic, cyberpunk aesthetic. I took heavy influence from Moebius and Josan AKA Deathburger (instagram).
The first illustration shows Jane at a crowded market with her old service droid. She trades the family droid for some strange foreign objects.
The second illustration is of Jane climbing the mysterious alien stalk high into the sky, as police hovercrafts attempt to bring her back down.
In the last illustration I imagined Jane escaping a huge alien station and as it descended in pursuit, the metropolis attacked it with all its military power. Leaving a wake of destruction, the gigantic alien being was brought down and Jane is ushered away by her mother.
