These concepts were created for a project internally know as "Okiniri". Okiniri was the name for ridable beast that had the potential to unlock physical and magical abilities when bonded with a Rider. In doing so they became to protectors of all living things. Not only did I serve as Art Director, but I also was in charge of the creative team developing the IP. We wanted to tap into the collecting and nurturing behavior of Pokémon players but imagined for an older audience. Concept Art by Sergey Naygel, Kory Hubble, Chris Madden, and Anton Bogaty.
