Otherland Part 1

In 2015 I decided to base my final degree project on a fantasy landscape, called ‘Otherland’, from a story I was writing. ‘Otherland’ is like a bridge between life and death. If a spirit strays onto this land, there may never be a chance of escape. The creatures on ‘Otherland’ consume any spirit that crosses its path, which isn’t a true death, they become one with the creature, share its thoughts, experiences and hunger. This could be a¬†good or bad thing depending on the creature and spirits compatibility. The bad combinations become distorted beings, only longing for the hunt. In the story line, a woman combines with a white fox, which becomes the part of her she was missing her entire life. Their compatibility is so high that they do not become one twisted being, but can shape shift from human to fox, inspired by Kitsunes in Japanese mythology. (And foxes are my favourite animal)

Below are doodles I did while trying to plan out the landscape, but I ended up liking these images so much I included them in my degree show.
