Google, I would appreciate it if you didn’t constantly show me my own shit when I search Images for 9 concept art. I KNOW, I WAS THERE.
I was up pretty late last night with an urge to clean and reorganize things, which doesn’t usually result in this level of progress. xD The only downside is now I have a big empty wall I don’t know what to do with yet…
Early Concept Art
So yeah, I dunno if anyone else realized, but Shane Acker’s website recently updated with some high quality concept art for 9. Those of us in the fandom have seen a lot of these before, but not yet in this quality—and there are a few that might even be new to some people!
As a die-hard fan as well as an artist, I must say this makes me ecstatic. :’D

My new dream is to live in a clock.
I want this flat, please and thank you.

Damn, 1 really pimped up his pad.
Infinite 9 - Style & Color Tests
Infinite 9 is such a horrendously slow production, which is partly due to the fact that my imagination far exceeds my talent. So much of the process of making it has been in figuring out how to accurately portray the look and feel of this world and its characters based on what I see in my head — because as it happens, my mind likes to work far more with visuals rather than writing.
Because of that, the art style has changed drastically, and this is just one of several tests I’ve done in nailing it down. I like to think of it as if Mamoru Hosoda (of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars fame) directed a post-apocalyptic stitchpunk western. :P
