Hello there! My name is Trevor Kory. I'm a Game Designer, Illustrator, Writer, and Concept Artist who works primarily in Photoshop and Unity. I started working on character art and design in 2011, and have been pursuing that passion ever since.
Ever since childhood I've been infatuated with designs in videogames. From towering technological mechanized marvels in games like Zone of the Enders, to the terrifying monsters of mythos combated in God of War, I've thrived on tasteful and interesting designs my entire life.
When I was 11, in 2008, a game called SPORE came out. In SPORE, I found the creative license to model, to create, and to design. I spent countless hours in that game over the course of its lifetime, making countless creatures, ships, and buildings. But, all great things came to an end, and as SPORE became rife with bots and spam accounts to upvote the same copy/pasted creations, it was time for me to leave that community. After that, I fell in love with LittleBigPlanet, where I was first introduced to Logic Gates, and simple programming. Little did I know, that the foundations that I would learn playing games about small knitted sackboys would lead me to where I was today - creating creatures and programming games, and enjoying both immensely.
Done late last year, I've been experimenting with how to increase my proficiency with my chosen artistic program - Photoshop CreativeCloud. Playing with Hues, Contrast, and Perspective, I took to entertaining the notion of the surreal. Many of my pieces are for my own personal benefit as an illustrator and designer, and this is no different.
This was more of a proof of concept piece for me. Pushing what I knew about blending and rendering colors in ways that pushed my knowledge of lighting and highlights. Working on and off for about three days, I again experimented with Photoshop CC and did my best to bring one of my favorite characters from StarCraft II to illustrated life.
The latest WIP of a project I've been working off and on again since January, I've been working on creating speedpaints for youtube and for personal reflection. The video itself has been linked, and will be placed into the DropBox directly. Speedpaints are great for seeing an artist's progress and style from beginning to end, and watching them can often serve as a relaxing way to pass the time.
