Digital Illustration

This university project required me to explore the iterative preproduction processes
of designing believable characters and environments in preparation for producing animated outcomes.        

The character design process encompassed visual research, sketches, story development and plasticine sculpting, resulting in a final character puppet ready for animating. The environment design process involved visual research and sketches, resulting
in a final multi-layer illustrated environment ready for animating.

I chose to develop a fun treasure hunting, scuba diving giraffe character in a colourful underwater environment.
