Just wanted to know what you think of the direction I’m going with Unit 6, I’m worried I might be going a bit over the top.
I have decided to give my version of the HIV infection a body horror feel. This idea came to me whilst drawing the infected cell and noticing very anatomical shapes in the patterns. I will be focusing on the attack and mutilation of a host cell. I want to portray the mutilation in a Cronenberg / David Lynch style. I still want to emphasize the vampiric nature of the virus but I’m not sure how to do this effectively.
I have done a few concept sketches; I’m not too sure about them. I tried to give the HIV cell an anatomical feel, even going as far as to add figure like mandibles to the Glycoprotein (Inspired by the Face hugger in Alien).
