VCD – Character Design & Illustrationlianfajardo.carrd.co/
With my work, I wanted to focus a lot on developing strong colours and interesting characters. I've always gravitated towards video games and other media that have a unique style and I feel that has shaped my own style and craft in many ways. I try to always maintain that love for creating characters in all of my work. Even in my more illustrative pieces, I'll try to find interesting ways of incorporating a character to bring life to the piece itself.
Cryptid Environment Cubes
A series of environment cubes following the adventures of a rookie researcher as he discovers a world of wonderful creatures. With these I wanted to explore specifically European cryptids, so each one revolves around a different creature that can be found in European folklore.
Various Character Work
A collection of character focused work I’ve done.
Some infographics I made in the Information Illustrations class.
The Tale of King Arthur: Reimagined
A set of illustrations that reimagines and recontextualizes the tale of King Arthur. Two of the illustrations I use to depict scenes in their original context while with in the other two, I reimagine the Knights of the Roundtable and King Arthur as a group of friends hanging out with a focus on sort of 80s aesthetics.
Vera Comic - “Price of Power”
A few pages from a comic I made in tandem with the Vera illustrations. Caught in moment of reflection, the demon Vera had made a pact with tries to break her mind through fear. However, it does not work because Vera is long past regrets.
A series of illustrations that revolve around an original character I had made for class. They depict the rise to power but fall into darkness of Vera, a small time thief who stumbles upon a dark power that promises her everything she desires. The main inspiration for this was 1920s mafia meets eldritch horror.
