About the work

The project I have worked on for this year is a personal IP called Onikiroshi: Contract with Death; a fantasy-action title that is largely inspired by from the Dark Souls series.

The processes taken throughout this project focus on the pre-visual concept sketches I produced before looking at different inspirational images from primary and secondary sourced images to help with form and texture, before resulting in a full-rendered image of the piece produced.

Student Bio

Over the last three years I have been able to produce pieces of artwork that I would never have been able to achieve, were it not for the help of my tutors throughout my time here at Confetti.

I have been able to see my digitally produced artwork evolve in quality over the years and see my portfolios and pieces produced as a visual representation of my journey throughout the course. I’ve also been able to observe how my skillset has become refined.

I hope now that I have finished my course, to get a job working in character/creature concept design for a games company, as I feel it will be the best position for my skillset.
