I never felt Freddy got the right Helmet, let it be the earlier armor helmet when I first started F.U. donuts or this one he uses to skateboard and later on dabble in upholding Justice with, something has always been missing. But I think with this one, I am a lot closer than what I want. Still trying to figure out what function I should offer to the extended fins on each side of the helmet? To slow down? Perhaps, we’ll see, for now, this will be Freddy’s skating helmet.
This is my latest attempt in trying to visually present the life of a typical Power City building, in this case, a side view of Public School 133 where Len and Freddy attend. On the Right is a side view (sliced open) diagram of the school showing various levels, support structures and entrance building as well as track/gym facility that is created out of the crater caused by the building’s former life as a massive, 10 storied high bomb, which is show at the moment of impact on the right. The transformation came about as more and more people make their way to the young city, and the cheapest way to come up with the solutions is to tap into the one thing that is the most abundant: discarded, scattered, dormant, super sized bombs.
Above is a general view of the school entrance from pervious design. I want the school to be slanted and remained that way since it would cost too much to lift it upright, Various class rooms are carved out and added on to the massive metal shell. This is why most of buildings within Power City look like the way they do.
Finally, the massive Crane Tanks used to build the city, these tanks are converted from Alliance killing machine and pretty much built the entire Power City from scratch, with 4 observation posts on top and 4 on the bottom, this massive machine requires a team of 50 works to operate, but it can lift up a 15 storied high bomb casing without any problems.
So I hope this post give you a little more glimpse into Power City during her younger years, like a hidden character, the city grow up along with Len and Freddy, out of debris and scarp metals, a home is made for all.
Above are just a few design concept for Big Al’s Junkyards business, as the F.U. crew’s friend and supporter, I wanted to give his business some cool logos. I was a bit split between going for the cheese factor paying tribute to all of those local cable tv day time ads or going with something cool, but still down to earth, not sure if any of these worked, but I wanted to show Big Al as the owner of several junk yards, a construction business (sub contractor) and a towing business. His access to surplus military hardware from both side of the war provided a direct access pipeline for Len and Freddy to build their custom made crime fighting weapons, armors, and equipments, at the same time, I am toy around with the idea that Big Al smelled something fishy about Cyprus Fist’s “Better Tomorrow” project since he too will be have business dealings with Cyprus’s construction business…the plot thicken.
