Animation

amy kyle's Main Work Image
Since childhood I found myself drawn to powerful imagery and storytelling. I quickly dove into making my own creations; fantastical expansive worlds and character studies. No narrative was off the table and when the words didn’t seem to do enough, I would draw. This passion grew with me and has led me to becoming a 2D artist, specialising in concept art and comic art. Over the past year I have been involved in several team projects that have taught me the importance of communication and versatility; providing me with a greater understanding of multiple areas within the animation pipeline. These team projects have afforded me the opportunity to push myself in new directions, picking up new skills and software experience along the way, working as a background/layout artist, colourist, compositor and video editor. This experience has also greatly informed the production process of my individual projects and the importance of research, time management and feedback from tutors and peers. While studying at DJCAD my passion for storytelling has intensified and I have learned the necessary techniques to evoke emotion through my work, bringing these stories to life in a way child me could never have imagined.
