Some supplemental images from my Pacific Rim Sequel Storyboard Pitch!
To answer a few questions you might have:
- Hermann isn’t with his cane in my sequence because I imagined the Jaeger Drive suit created for him would have that accounted for; It would be odd if it DIDN’T have protective braces for him within the armor. (much like Tony Stark in his Iron Man suit- he can lift a car because of that armor) I also imagined that he’s about to drift with Newt and in sharing that neural handshake he may not feel the pain from his leg temporarily.
- The Jaeger I designed for them is based upon the idea mentioned that a Kaiju-Jaeger hybrid could be a possible plot element. Burn also mentioned it to me at Dragon*con. Whether it’s officially gonna happen or not is up in the air. :) And the name I gave it? LYMPH-CODE. I’m a fuckin’ dork.
- I’ll be posting more sketches of Lymph-Code. I’ve thought out a lot about how it’ll function as a hybrid. I’m excited about those ideas! :3 All I can say is that NO part of the Jaeger design is USELESS, and that Newt and Hermann in my mind would have several times more screens to look at than the average Jaeger team due to biological feeds as well. ;) The electronic eyes fail? Wellp, no problem…we have other options here though the world may look very different through THOSE feeds. ;)
