I decided on another idea for my persona project, which is a mobile runner game called Eden. I can’t learn how to code in a short amount of time so it won’t be a real game, but I plan to create concept art, animate fake gameplay with After Effects, and make fake screencaps of gameplay. It will be a highly aesthetic game that focuses heavily on graphics and appealing UI.
My personal project will be a comic. My plan for this comic is for certain parts to be animated (generally the action) and other parts to be still.
I really want to work with food. Using food for reference and adding the figures in to the illustration.
This project is basically Tinder for artists, but instead of being a sleazy dating app it’s a slightly less sleazy job search app. I got inspired to make this project over the summer when I changed all my Tinder pictures to artwork and listed commission prices with my portfolio website in my bio and actually found work that way, so I concluded maybe an entire app dedicated to this would work out just fine. It would operate in a similar fashion – you choose what your looking for, jobs or work, and get bombarded by individual profiles that you’d he forced to swipe right or left on. Whichever you match with, you’d have the option to contact them and discuss further. A built in payment system would be incorporated into the app so users wouldn’t have to rely on outside services for that. It’s for more casual jobs rather than stable ones, mainly freelance work for students or rising hobbyist designers could pick up for some real world experience.
For my personal project, I’m going to bring the old tales of Greek Mythology back with a twist by placing the gods and goddesses in modern day New York City. This will require me to tweak (and even uproot) some details from the original stories. The narrative will be done in comic/sequential form with plenty of humor and pop culture references. I don’t plan to employ a soundtrack like Disney’s “Hercules”, but it will still be lots of fun.
Personal Project: Comic Book One Shot
My personal project will be creating my own comic book. I am planning on creating 5-7 chapters. This comic book will be based on a story I wrote in my senior year of high school. Which was based off a series of dreams I had when I was 14. This story will contain a compelling plot with characters who are very easy to understand but, have complex personalities. I will achieve this goal by writing a story using my past experiences, observations, and the dreams that inspired me. I will also design very likable characters and appealing back rounds. My goal will be to use this story to jump start an expanded universe which I could use to make my own series of comic books. Hopefully the stories I write could one day inspire a new generation of people and allow them to live a better life.
PERSONAL PROJ: MAGAZINE
The main idea of this project is that students could communicate ideas and encourages hybrid collaboration. I got a lot of new inspirations when I have experience of collaborating with different artists. Thus I really want to start a project to build a community or create a stage for more artists to have fun with collaboration and explore more unique ideas. This project’s aim is to promote the development of art student on campus and connect more audience from public with educative talks, workshops, online post and a publication. Also, I found inspirations from the Pica magazine: “Pica is a playground where errors are encourage and boundaries pushed”(picamag.com). I really want to use this project to challenge myself with social communication and learn more from other artists during collaborating.
