The ÆTHER エーテル Mecha Pilot  is a futuristc, emotive design used to promote Skeler's live performances on his first USA tour. Skeler is an Australian artist specializing in Wave music which is an emotive, thoughtful, journey. The idea was to use anime and gaming inspirations and the piece is very reminiscent of Evangalion, Halo, and Gundam with a bit of edge and emotion. 

I sculpted a 3D model in Zbrush to complete the final form. Animations were made with Cinema 4D, Octane, and After Effects for live performances and promotional videos.
