MACHINE CONCEPTS FOR A CHINESE ACTION COMEDY MOVIE
The story plays with the smog now covering most of Chinese cities. Turns out it was created by an evil businessman, who in order to sell more air purifiers, spread smog on the cities. Faced by such treat, the ancient gods come down to earth in order to help.
The main treat was coming mainly by the businessman own invention, a giant smog-pouring mechanical snake. I spent a day sketching the head - the driver's seat and his filter for survival - before the idea was cancelled, so there it is!
I played with the idea of having the driver in a bubble or a filter suit in order to keep him from harm while he sucks all the good air from the atmosphere.
