Spaceships, machines, characters, creatures, interiors, and much more...

Our Entertainment Design students are working every day to create ideas and working studies for Games and Films.  The best of the best work together with modelers, animators and gamers creating assets for student projects like Project X films.  Here is a sampling of all kinds of student work being created here at Cogswell .  You could become one of them!


Sometimes funny is all you need. Daniel O'Guin.

Great turnarounds and expression sheet for Mr. Green, from Heng Feng.

Character options from a new student film.  You can see how the artist has to take a director's idea and create several iterations as the production narrows down the look of the film.

spooky and cool.

I'm pretty sure this is from Luis Carrasco, but I know this character was developed by more than one Cogswell artist.  For a new student film project; you saw it here first!

The probe room, another spaceship interior concept.

The scanner room, an early concept for "Worlds Apart".

Another from Brandon Russell.  Watch and learn, kiddies.

The Temple, from "The Offering".
Proposed landscape for an alien world, from a new project.  Nice!

Interior from a new student film project.

more characters!

the China component

We have students from China every year now. They are so well trained over there but they all seem to want that American willingness to work towards the unexpected, and we're pretty good at that here at Cogswell.  Heng Feng is a good example; his work was beautiful when he arrived. He created a princess character and I challenged him to subvert the idea of a princess.  We had some back and forth about that notion and then he drew this character, which I really,  really liked.  Another character page below that shows her in all her many moods.

the most beautiful girl...

My favorite character in the whole world, for the moment.
