BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS
MIAD, or the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, was the college I attended from 2015 - 2019. There, I graduated with my Bachelor of Fine Arts. I majored in Illustration and one day intend on going back to finish my minor in Graphic Communications.
Art by Joanna Garcia
For my final Senior Project (aka Senior Thesis), I partnered up with my at-the-time classmate, now Fiancé, Joanna Garcia. Together we created a game that reimagined the Knights of The Round Table.
We started off with a script and a concept, then started to pump out work for it.
We were limited to 3 months, so a lot of the project is not finished. Our main goal was to get some concept art together, whip up some models, and then put together a solid 3D environment.
After graduation, I continued to work on Excaliber. (If only a little.)
When Midjourney first started to surface, I tried using AI to create ideas for the world of Camelot. In creating the sample above, I figured out a new game mechanic I wanted to implement.
With every dungeon completion, the world would turn more purple. More magic would be infesting the plant life, the buildings, and even the enemies. As you progressed, so did the magic's corruption.
FRONTEND UX DESIGN
(Note: These are generic blocking ideas I've created for the game. The text and theming is in no way final.)
The above are sketches for multiple different icons. I was trying to pin a style down, and I decided to steer towards "simple ornamental".
Before starting at Raven, I was trying to figure out how I wanted to do my ornamental accents.
I decided an ornamental + modern look was best, as it fit the theming of my game.
Unfortunately, as of now, things are on hold as I work in the industry. I hope I can start again soon!
