Art Direction

In January 2020, I decided to model Kayla Marquez's design for her Dragon Age concept of her original character Valkari. Inspired by her warm field design, I wanted to exaggerate her 2D style in the 3D model. Using both digital, traditional, and photographic reference I was able to achieve a design that I am proud to present.
