‘Collective works from Pipedreams Animatic’ 

Progressed from  

Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Diploma Art & Design (Fine Art) 

Statement  

My work for this project is titled ‘Pipedreams’ which tackled the basic ideology of ‘Wanderlust’ through an imaginative storytelling approach. These pieces focus on a surreal psychological perception of a person’s desire for escapism. Surrealism was the main influence behind the idea, and its use within media such as music, literature and games that tackled darker topics. It was later portrayed in the visual use of monochrome palettes and pseudo-gothic stylisation in the storyboarding process. These concept pieces have a distinctive balance between vivid horror and dream-like visuals to present the fluctuation within a person’s perception of escape. Behind the storytelling of Pipedreams, it tackles the hopeful escapism of antagonist, Dr. Harrison, as he yearns to roam across the world.

‘Orik’s Playhouse’

Progressed from  

Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Diploma Art & Design (Fine Art) 

Statement  

Orik’s Playhouse was inspired by the point and click horror games that sparked my interest in game design as an early teen. I created Orik in late 2020, inspired by Gerard Way’s priest outfits worn in the early-to-mid-2000s, and wanted to develop their story and personality for my final major project. Orik’s design uses a lot of circles and soft edges as these shapes are generally used to show innocence and friendliness thus creating a juxtaposition between Orik’s design and personality; something I thought worked well for a horror game set in an abandoned children’s show TV studio. I drew a lot of inspiration from popular children’s shows like The Muppets and Sesame Street, as well as comics such as Doom Patrol and The True Fabulous Lives of the Killjoys.

‘Hoondead House & Character Art’

Progressed from  

Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Diploma Art & Design (Fine Art) 

Statement  

My aims for your FMP were to create an animated trailer for a rhythm game called ‘Hoondead House’, which is based in a haunted house where ghost hunters challenge ghosts to music battles. I enjoy designing and developing characters and in all my pieces, I like to try to find as many ways as possible to show a character’s personality — through their expressions, clothes, surroundings and just overall design! I have done a lot of research into different character archetypes and stereotypes to help me understand the different types of personalities and ways to present them in my art.

‘Flashes Through Time’

Progressed from  

Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Diploma Art & Design (Fine Art) 

Statement  

This piece portrays the theme of wanderlust which includes the use of time travel and nostalgia to help the development of the narrative. Here I have included concept art, 2D/3D animation and rotoscoping. For each piece of work, I wanted to create a cinematic effect so that the scene is very dramatic and appealing to the audience. The development of this project includes practicing with colour, test animations and animating on different programmes so that I can demonstrate a variety of skills that I have learnt during the length of this course.

‘Animation and Concept Art’

Progressed from  

Hertfordshire and Essex High school — GCSE

Statement  

Throughout this course I have improved skills on both animation and illustration. This work shows three animations and two of my best pieces of concept art. Two of the animations were from my recent ‘wanderlust’ project where I created a parkour and urban city theme. The prop concept art was also from my project and in the end, I was really proud of that piece as it was my first-time designing props. The two other pieces of work — the bouncing ball animation and fire girl — are ones I created in my spare time. The concept art was inspired by the Artist “kan lui” who I had discovered in my most recent project.

‘Wanderlust – Freedom of Flight’

Progressed from  

Leventhorpe school — GCSE 

Statement  

These pieces show some of my work throughout the project. It’s based around a species known as Birian, an anthropomorphic bird like species. These Birian get captured and put into enclosures where they are no longer free, and long to escape. My other story is based on a group of friends who rescue a wolf from hunters. I have told these stories through a motion comic and music video. The comic uses a mix of desaturated and bright colours to show the contrast in environments, while the music video uses a set colour scheme of grey backgrounds and brightly coloured characters. The animations were created in Photoshop and Clip studio and animated in After effects and Animate.

‘Sunshine and Skyscrapers’

Progressed from  

King Harold Academy — GCSE 

Statement  

These pieces were created to show my passion for architecture. I tried to select contrasting aesthetics to make the viewing experience more varied and to demonstrate the skills I have learned throughout my time with the course. A fascination with camera angles has inspired me especially to demonstrate my capabilities and improve my overall drawing techniques. Evolving my colour theory knowledge throughout the year has been a personal goal of mine, especially my ability to use lighter gradients and shading to express sunlight, which is something I often struggled with.

‘Untitled’

Progressed from  

Hertford Regional College — UAL Level 2 Diploma Art & Design (Fine Art)  

Statement  

These series of concept art were inspired my the main character I developed for my FMP, and were brought to life through subtle animation techniques such as the puppet tool and particle effects. My theme was based around fantasy and the magical elements. This helped to expand my range and enabled me to add to my personal style. The concept art are of my character Tayla Creed, who is an earth element, associated with the colour green and plants. I used these to represent her element. The other animated piece is a scene from a music video I made during a pervious project.

‘A Collection’

Progressed from

Statement  

The work here demonstrates a variety of digital artwork that I have created on course. You can see that I have tried out different styles when it comes to colouring and line art which I absolutely love as I have shown that I have experimented with different styles.
