My name is Ashley Porter and I'm a junior animation major. Hailing from the east coast, I'm a little aways from home, but I've come to find a new home here at Bradley University. My passion for animation developed from my love of story telling. As a child I watched shows such as Avatar and Studio Ghibli movies. I've always loved the way the story was conveyed through the animation and as I grew up I began wanting to do the same. As I prepare to look ahead post-graduation, I would love to continue telling stories thanks to the skills I have developed during my time here at Bradley.
This is a concept sketch I made of a fox for a game that I was creating. I really liked how the fox turned out, as it was my first time drawing an animal.
This was a picture I sketched in a notebook and decided to color. I don't often work in color so it was a fun challenge to experiment new ways to color an image.
