BA [Hons] 3D Design Modelmaking + Digital Art

Growing up I was always drawing or doing something creative as I was influenced and inspired by my artistic family. Throughout my four years in IADT I have developed many skills and discovered my passion for sculpting and character design. Reflected in my final project I enjoy creating creatures and bringing them to life.


Influenced by the hybrid creatures seen in Avatar the last air bender I wanted to design a creature that has not been explored within the show. Most notably water bending creatures as there is little to no representation. Using characteristic inspiration from sea creatures and other aquatic animals such as seals, manta rays and axolotls.
