Character Design and Development
This is the protagonist of the story. The character has been designed to show its personality, the robot is hunched over like a teenager with a moody facial expression. The white hooded rags are the remanence of its creator's lab coat. As the landscape he will explore will be exotic and vibrant, I wanted the robot to have contrast by looking washed, bleak out and lifeless. When designing the robot I wanted to make sure it can clearly display emotions but also has a limit to what it can express, the solution was to make his face a LED screen so that its eyes can covey its emotions however the crack along its face represents its mouth as well as its quirky personality.
The robot is introduced to a psychedelic and vibrant new world where nature has flourished and adapted as a result of the absence of humans. Plants, the ecosystem and geography have dramatically changed and the leftover remains of the old world have been swallowed by the new deformed landscape while the wildlife has reclaimed the world. Everything the robot encounters is new, although beautiful this new world can be dangerous. I wanted this new world I'm designing to look almost alien but with hints of the old world.
As well as designing the landscapes and character, I needed to illustrate the visual narrative for the theoretical film. The bleak colours and mood represent the situation of the robot, it is alone and there is no life and no purpose for it until a message finds its way to the robot giving it a task to explore the world. The only way the robot has learnt and kept its self busy is by going through its creators belongs, one of which is the bass guitar that sparked the robots curiosity. Through listening to its creator's music and watching leftover movie collections the robot has developed an unusual, unstable and abrupt personality. Although the robot is damaged it still works beyond its expected capability's. The robot wishes to have his own adventure like he's seen in the movies.
The remaining humans inhabit the Dyson sphere style space station. With limited supplies and resources and no way of knowing the conditions of the earth, their only solution is to make contact with the earth with the hope some or something is listening. The situation for the remaining humans worsened resorting to a civil war and a devastating event caused the station to rupture and break.
Graphic Designer specialising in digital illustration.
My work process always tells a story. The story for my final year project is about developing my skills and knowledge in digital painting to create 'concept art'. My aim was to create a visual narrative for a theoretical film along with designs for the characters, landscapes and more. My work process is thorough and extensive and I only strive for the best of my capability. I am skilled in a range of Adobe software and traditional media and during my time as a freelance graphic designer, I have had many professional clients. I have a strong passion for exploring the best of my creative and imaginative potential. I have previously experimented with digital painting by creating my own briefs and I have practised and developed my skills in digital painting as my career goal is to create concept art for the film industry.
