Project Description: Planet Dyploon world design
My project is a world design which is an invented planet called Dyploon where I made concepts for a certain biome. In order to characterize this biome well, I have chosen 6 key concepts that represent essential aspects of this world, who lives in it and which manner. The concepts are an environment, a chart of various vegetation, a wild creature, a developed alien race, the living spaces of the alien race and a illustration depicting an interaction between the alien race and the wild fauna. The organisms in this world are insect-like invertebrates and I used mainly beetles as an anatomical inspiration, but also spiders and grasshoppers. The vegetation is a combination of plants and fungus and the biome designed in this project is a swmp. This project’s outcomes are all 2D renders, however I used 3D bases for 3 of them: the House, Predator Creature and Humanoid Creature; which were produced in Zbrush and rendered in Keyshot. The concept pipeline is a full process beginning with thumbnails and iterations and being finalized using photobashing and hand painting.
Course: Concept Art BA
Biography: Previously a traditional 2D artist, I am currently pursuing a career as a 2D artist for the game industry. My main specialization is concept art, but I am also interested in making illustration and UI design. I also know how to make 3D assets that mostly help me with my 2D work, but I can make game ready 3D models as well. My skills are quite generalized and I’m interested in working in a small-medium company where I can do a variety of tasks and communicate with my team and other teams as well.
Software: Photoshop, Maya, Zbrush, Substance Painter, Keyshot, Marmoset Toolbag
Work Experience: Most of my experience is from university and personal projects, but I also have some experience with freelancing since I worked for an independent contractor as a freelance 2D artist for 2 years and I’m still occasionally making commissions.
Interests: I have a passion for nature, animals, creature design, history, fantasy and trying new art media. My hobbies include traditional art such as painting, cooking, gardening. and taking care of my pets.
