Concept Design and Digital Artwork
DEVELOPING AND VISUALISING WORLDS, CHARACTERS AND ENVIRONMENTS
Over past ten years, I have regularly worked with a number of production companies, producers, directors and sales agents, producing concept designs covering key scenes, set designs, characters, props, costume and graphics. This has not just been for pre-production but also for Research and Development, feasability studies and pitch and finance/investment presentations.
