Bao and Leo turnarounds
Bao is based on a red panda, and Leo takes inspiration from a snow leopard. They are opposites in personality and shape. Here are their comparative turnarounds.
Ages of Bao
Bao as a child, young adult, middle-aged adult and old woman.
The Cupcake Shirt
I liked Bao's shirt design so much in the Ages development that I made it into its own illustration!
Ages of Leo
Leo as a child, young adult, middle-aged adult and old man.
The Blueberry Waffles Shirt
Similarly to Bao, Leo's shirt has quite a bit of detail that I wanted to explore. The Blueberry Waffles shirt was born.
Bao in different outfits for different occasions: formal, kigu, casual outing. Bao was initially sketched in her sleep-wear, so enabling a good amount of detail was fun! Bao's thematic colours mimic a red panda: reds, oranges and dark brown/grey.
Style Mimicry 1
Bao and Pom in the style of Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino's The Legend of Korra. Red pandas can be pretty feisty and tenacious, so Bao is depicted as a fire-bender in this Alternate Universe piece.
Style Mimicry 2
Bao in the style of Alphonse Mucha, composition taken from the piece Fruit. Instead of flowers and fruit decorating the character, Bao is adorned with frosting and fruity decorations, and cradles a pile of pastries. This ties in with Bao being a baker's student. Pom is unforgotten, subtly decorating the little corners of the piece.
Bao's favourite place - a brightly coloured bakery! This piece is inspired by several Chinese bakeries I have frequented in the UK and Malaysia. This place would be Bao's motivation to become a student baker, after seeing a poster-flyer calling for applicants to Madame Choux's Baking School for Gifted Bakers.

The Nosey Pacas
Promotional brand images and concepts for The Nosey Pacas, from sketch to digital final.
The Nosey Pacas are a family of alpacas living in a green English village. Their curiosity often gets them up to all sorts of mischief and adventure!
Bright colours and elongated alpaca shapes were used in the character and background designs to emphasise a fun and positive atmosphere.
The Nosey Pacas: Backgrounds
Final backgrounds worked to an animatic for the pilot episode.
Character turnarounds for the main family of Pacas, including their friend, the red-haired Watson and an outdoor outfit for Poppy Paca.
The Nosey Pacas: Character Turnarounds
More character turnarounds for extended family and friends of the Pacas, as well as redesigns of distant relatives and antagonists.
Promotional images for Granny Sprocket including Granny's rocket and its ability to change into other machines depending on the environment, their nemesis' spaceship (Captain Comet) and inventions Granny and Fran invent to defeat Captain Comet and his polluting ways.
Granny Sprocket (rebranded as Fran an' Gran) tells the story of a relationship between an inventor Granny and her keen granddaughter as they use recycled materials to invent an assortment of gadgets to protect Earth and beyond.
A lot of time was spent getting Granny's hair right and removing it from the initial design which was a typical pink cloud-perm. Now Granny's hair has a recognisable shape with its hooked curl at the end, with plenty of texture within the shape.
Similarly, Ratchet (later called Fran) has complimentary coloured hair, with plenty of curls. Included is a light-bulb hair accessory as a play on the old concept of having a light bulb appearing over the head when an idea strikes.
Stork mascot vector illustration worked for fertility company Vida Bem Vinda. This project had a very quick turnaround of approximately a week. Palette was provided by the company's brand, and direction was mostly my original concept.
Solar Century: Animated Advert
Two concepts worked under direction from Natan Rifkin for Solar Century: the Baobab growth and the Figures in Motion. Initially, both concepts were going to be used, but the company chose to go for the silhouettes with looping or minor movements akin to Apple advertising methods.
Solar Century: Animated Advert
Most of the 30 second animated advert was done by hand-drawn animation, with VFX later added on by 3D animator Yohan Nebbout. Here, the finalised figures slowly morph into the company's name. This whole process used Photoshop for concepts, Illustrator for vector correction and After-Effects CS6 for composition and animation.
