Featured Projects


Character Concept Art

Character Concept Art

This was done during the summer of 2018, when I had an idea for a webcomic character and wanted to figure out how one of my female leads would look like. This was done in Clip Studio Paint.

Character Sheet

Character Sheet

This is a character sheet I did for my senior animation project. I had to scrap the story, because it was too big in scope, but this character was supposed to be a Tree Spirit of Palestine. Everything was done in Clip Studio Paint.

Character Fanart

Character Fanart

This is fanart of Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender, but he's a bit older here than in canon. This piece was a quick sketch I did to wind down from animating my senior project. The piece was done in Clip Studio Paint and took about forty-five minutes to complete.

The Senior Animation Capstone is the final project for animation students and a culmination of their years studying software and various animation techniques. Each student makes their own animated short, which may be hand-drawn, digitally animated, or designed in 3D. From concept sketches to the silver screen, these students have brought their imaginations to life over two semesters of hard work and preparation. FUSE is the only chance you may have to view these epic films on the big screen, so be sure to grab a seat and enjoy!
