Checkered Ninja 03
Hi there! This is a personal project where I tried to imagine the visual direction for a potential third movie of the franchise Checkered Ninja based on a personal idea.

Short summary of Checkered Ninja
The young boy, Ash, gets a checkered ninja doll from his Uncle Stewart as a birthday present. The checkered Ninja doll, turns out to be possessed with a rap-jawed Japanese spirit, who challenges Ash's perception of what he can and cannot do.

My idea:
Ash meets a new girl in the neighborhood, Sakura, who is protected and held captive against her will by an ancient Japanese samurai spirit Itsumo Mamoru. Itsumo Mamoru is tortured for not being able to protect her ancestors and he has now dedicated his full life purpose to protecting her. Whatever it takes.
Concept Development

Below you can see my concept development process of the Shinto shrine location. Going from final concept piece, to character exploration and early development.
