I used The Dragon Age concept art book to inspire these three pieces, which are the three final design sheets for each character. I am really happy with each of these pieces and I am also happy with how much my digital work has improved. I wanted each of these sheets to show the important elements of each character, along with the images I provided a short description of their character and their roles in the story.
Improvement will only come from more experience using digital processes, which from now on I will incorporate within my future projects.
Gathering some artist research to inspire me for my project I came across Juno Mendiola, a concept artist and illustrator for games design. I particularly love her sketches with coloured pencils, they have a lot of movement and all her drawings, digital or otherwise create a lot of personality for her characters. I would love to see some of her work annotated by herself to understand her processes and how she gets her ideas on to the paper. Her work has inspired me to experiment with more sketching and sketching with coloured pencils.
I have decided to use elements from a collection of short stories and writings that I have created over the years and pull them all together to create an idea for an up coming animation/movie/story. What I would really like to do is create characters and concept art for the piece and create a world and story inspired by my favourite things and my favourite artists, but mainly from poems, stories and notes that I have created myself.
I tend to enjoy more fantasy based literature and adventurous plot lines, so this will most likely be the genre of the outcome. I plan to take influences from some of my favourite films, concept art and artists to help enhance and inspire my work. The ideal outcome would be a concept art book and a fully designed story, with characters and scenery, some story boards and annotations. With the time limit I have been given and the work I have to do for the external project,I may not have time to produce the outcome which I want, however I will just continue to draw and experiment, put my idea and story together as I go to see how far the project goes.
