Since I love making characters and creating concept art for those characters, I want to create character designs and concept art that takes inspiration from objects or various creatures. An example of this would be making a character with cloudy hair and have their emotions tied to the weather. The characters may be used as a future concept for a comic series after graduation. Other characters I had in mind are a praying mantis that is a judge, and a queen that has a chocolate cake inspired design. My cake inspired character has a dragon.

I mainly focus on digital art, using an iPad Pro 11” and an app called Procreate. Procreate is my go to program, mostly when I am out and about, but until I find a cord for my Wacom tablet to dual screen, I will go back to Clip Studio Paint. Sometimes I sketch in my sketchbook with color erase pencils, ink with ink pens or brush pens, and color with Copic markers or colored pencils. I plan to showcase a set of 10 character illustrations. The sizes for these will be 8.5” x 11”. Each one has a frame and will be displayed on a wall in the shape of a cake. With each piece having a different color palette, it goes from reddish on top to violet and pink at the bottom.
