VCD – Character Design & Illustrationwww.artstation.com/haideevael
Hello! My name is Haidee (pronounced like "Hades" but without the "s") and I'm a 2D storytelling artist based in Calgary, Alberta. While I consider visual development to be my primary focus, I find myself doing quite a bit of illustration too. Outside of my artistic practice, I spend most of my free time with my yorkie mix, Zuzu Gingersnap. I enjoy sketching from life, jotting down potential ideas and taking inspiration wherever we happen to be!
Concept art is my jam, I love the process of researching, drafting and designing worlds. For my final compositions, I aim to achieve a sense of life in a still image through the movement of the characters or atmosphere of the environment. In the early stages of my process, I often reference or adapt the tricks used in live-action cinematography to achieve balance, mood, space, and colour. Now graduated, my new goal is to go on to do studio work as a viz dev or background artist.
