I am a 2D concept artist and character designer who has always loved 2D animation. Even now, I still enjoy cartoons and 2D films and take a lot of inspiration in how they create memorable characters that feel tangible. Studying animation at DJCAD has allowed me to explore and develop my own skills as a character designer to produce solid and exciting designs that would eventually be animated. Being able to breathe life into these characters and make a flat drawing look three-dimensional is a process I find really rewarding and exciting. During my final year at DJCAD I helped work on the character designs for my group project ‘The Walk’ and it was really satisfying seeing these characters being animated so fluidly by my fellow team mates. As well as my group film, I also created characters for my own personal projects ‘Frog King’ and ‘The Marriage of Mrs Fox’, both of which were based on Grimm fairy tales. In the future, I hope to be able to take the skills I have learned and developed here at DJCAD and use them in the industry to help create memorable and unique characters.
