OUTCAST: The Graphic Novel, this has been something I've wanted to create for many years, and finally I'm proud to present the finished novel! Here you can view the first two instalments of my project, which starts with some of the art from last years final project-right through to the finished art I created for this years Masters project. A third instalment would finish the story off nicely, but I'll wait to see how much interest this garners first.
"A final Masters project I designed while studying games design (2011). The story centres around a lone protagonist 'Christian', and his survival among the infected 'Hekla'. Deserted on a hostile planet, and in need of rescue, Christian must hold out as a small team of marines set out on a mission to retrieve one of their own.
Fusing both traditional methods of design with new creative software to produce the animated graphic novel that is 'OUTCAST: Midnight Rising'. I started out with the concept, writing down the initial idea, quick sketches and then the storyboard. Following on from this, I then finalised the story components and began the character and environment art, keeping in mind that many aspects were to be animated at a later stage. Once the designs were sketched, I then scanned them in and digitally painted each panel in Photoshop ready to be imported into AfterEffects for the final rendered animation."
