Bioshock Infinite - Young Liz costume development by shoomlah Bioshock Infinite - Young Liz costume development by shoomlah
Sooo now that Bioshock: Infinite is out, I can finally share some of the visual development I did for the game! I just finished my first playthrough last night, so I'm pretty chuffed.

Figured I'd lead with my dress design process for young Liz, since her alternate outfit has been getting a lot of coverage (no pun intended) over the past couple of months. Irrational wanted a 1912 period- and age-appropriate look, so that’s what I was aiming for; there are a lot of iterations, but I'm really happy with how the final model turned out in-game.

More of my work for Bioshock: Infinite:

(Also, temendous thanks to Jorge Lacera and the team at Irrational for briefly welcoming me into the fold- as a huge fan of the franchise I was blown away when they hit me up to do some concept work, and it was an absolute pleasure to contribute in even the tiniest way to what is looking to be an amazing game.)

Can I use your Liz dresses for an OC? Also, would you like to help me with boy-teenager clothes in Columbia??

I just got the art book and this was one of my favorite pages; I had no idea this art was yours! Spectacular job on the design. I was in love with Elizabeth immediately.

OMG. You have no idea how this looks awesome to me. This is exactly what I want to do in life: drawing costumes for movies and - if I have to dream even bigger - for videogames! That's the coolest thing ever and I'm so genuinely jealous of what you got to do! :D

Can I ask what kind of schools/universities/courses did you attend to learn digital art and costume design?

Thanks in advance *-*

Well, she sure seems... depressed here.

Sure, Elizabeth does get gloomy at a certain point in the game, but she was still cheerful in the beginning when she had that ponytail.

it's hard to read
maybe writing down the text or resizing it would help a lot.

It isn't! As it says in the image, there weren't many uniforms during the turn of the century- this is just based on what young high-school age women would have been wearing at the time.

I always wondered something about Elizabeth's design. Did the team at Irrational intentionally want Elizabeth to have a sort of Belle from Beauty and the Beast look? With the color scheme and even ponytail, even her tower that she is kept in, she's found in her library.

Just curious.
