Below are two of my Concept Art projects from this semester, high resolution images can be viewed on my Artstation here:
The Soul Warden Project as well as the Stone Temple Environment also include a timelapse of each final illustration on my artstation.
For as long as I can remember I always had an interest of character customization, be it in videogames, drawing or any other way I could customize things. This quickly became videogame-focused during my time at school and brought me into this seemingly limitless world where your imagination was the only limit there was. So, the more customizable a game was, the more appealing it was for me, it was only natural that some of the games I kept coming back to were things like Spore and Little Big Planet as they feature incredible levels of customization along their fun and cute gameplay. My love for these facets of art and games quickly grew into my passion for drawing, storytelling, worldbuilding and character creation and design, though my experience in a variety of styles and programs through my life helped me settle down on what kind of way I’d like to represent my creations. During my BA I found out more about Concept Art, being able to take a class in it, and it quickly became one of my favorite things to do during that time. Researching and finding more about it, it helped me realize that this was something attainable for me. The more I explored the more I realized how big of a passion I had for so many parts of this industry, especially if I got to focus it around my interests and fantasy themes. Nowadays my work is mainly focused around said fantasy, especially Dungeons and Dragons as it involves all of my favorite parts of art and some of my main interests into a fantastic social activity with friends while creating incredible stories and worlds together!
