Ava_Ex Machina

Continuing on the robot theme...this is an early concept I did of Ava for the film Ex Machina, (under the direction of Paul Franklin at Double Negative Visual Effects). Preliminary concepts were created by the Director Alex Garland and Mark Simpson, and the evolution of the character continued at Double Negative with further designs explored by  Dan Hee Ryu and Simon Gustafsson of the concept team. I'm very happy to say that the film won Double Negative the Oscar for best Visual Effects at the 2016 Academy Awards, under the supervision of Andrew Whitehurst.
