EMPHORIA

FINAL MAJOR PROJECT

For my final major project at University of The Arts London, I used inspiration from DC and Marvel comic book adaptions such as Guardians of the Galaxy to create my own alien world where my character designs would live. I wanted to create a mother nature of the world ‘Emphor III’ which Philip K. Dick discusses in his short story ‘The Impossible Planet’. I then designed, illustrated and wrote my own comic book where my character background originated, then made the prosthetic out of foam latex and costume from start to finish. I filmed and conducted a photoshoot in the Living Rainforest in Newbury to represent how my character embodied the nature of the alien planet.

 

 

SECOND CHARACTER

FINAL MAJOR PROJECT

As a requirement of my brief, I also had a to design and create a second character for my final major project. Therefore, I decided to create a second version of Emphoria – but after the world of Emphor III was polluted and destroyed by war. Since she is a mother nature character, she therefore had to embody the changes shown in the environment of the world.

 

DEMOS IN TAIWAN

I was fortunate enough to win a competition in May 2018 to visit HungKuang University in Taiwan alongside Cecilia Pritchard and Karl Rouse to demonstrate some of my work as well as teach a collection of students there for a week. I completed demo’s of my characters from my final major project, as well as creating an alien bald cap look alongside Melissa Brett.
