Tycho Brahe Visual Development

So this past semester I've had an independent study with prof. Daniel Krall, working on some pre production art for a hypothetical animation. I chose the story of Tycho Brahe, the 16th century Danish astronomer who lost his nose in a duel against a rival mathmetician. I wish we still settled feuds this way. When did that become out of vogue?

An environment for the ballroom

Side characters. I wanted to emphasize how the female interest contrasts with the globular side characters.

Same with the rooster.

Samurai flair.
