The Experiment

May 23, 2010

This is my second character creation (first video) exploring a possible relationship between the cultural movement expressionism and delusional disorder. I begin by bringing a rough sketch into Alchemy (, then I pick a suitable silhouette to bring into Photoshop to complete.


The Mailman

April 6, 2010

For this video, I discover essential narrative devices for creating a conflict. The need for a dispute is recognized from the opposite nature of the character’s design.

The Villain

March 30, 2010

I reference a prior speed painting to create the initial look for this Villain character. I then base his outfit on the varying shapes that make up a Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The Librarian

March 30, 2010

During  the character design process, I discover various cultural meanings for the hand as a symbol. I also mask this characters true abilities by assigning her an eluding title.

The Tank

March 26, 2010

In this video I challenge my own bias against creating for a particular genre.

The Jester

March 21, 2010

For this character, I begin by setting out to create a seductive and entertaining character. By analyzing the minor details on her outfit, I apply the myth of the Amazons to influence her potential motives.

The Outlaw

March 18, 2010

I quickly turn this character from a leader to an outlaw, while finding multiple meanings in one of his costume motifs. I attempt to link a narrative possibility with a prior character.

The Pregnant Woman

March 16, 2010

In this video I bring about a brief description of a new tribe based on the Assyro-Babylonian creation myth. I also discuss the use of feminine symbols and their relevance to character design. 

The Witch Doctor

March 13, 2010

Using the Myers Briggs personality type test, I create the character tendencies for this post-apocalyptic Witch Doctor.

The Stalker

March 13, 2010

In this video, I cover potential mental illnesses that are drawn from the character’s costume design.
