This was a graphic novel project that I started with a friend, but our lives became busy so we sort of put it on hold. The project is called "The Daimis Chronicles" It follows the story of Mallard Fasguard as he is sent on a quest by his father to retrieve a special stone known as a "Daimis Shard", but when he gets collects the stone his world is twisted up and he finds out about an evil that is brewing in the lands. He is forced on a quest to collect all the shards to hopefully stop the evil. By all means take a look at it there is 9 pages to the graphic novel. Hope you like it.

Digital art of one of my recent character ideas. His name is Mallard Fasguard. He is the Prince of Goria. I was working on a graphic novel with a friend that featured Mallard as the Main character but school started getting busy and my friend and I became busy within our own lives so we didn't talk much causing this project to kind of slip under the rug.

I was mostly focusing on placing a character within a complex background that had a lot of detail.

This is just something I did to make a livable environment I just took a basic City street and placed characters at different depths to practice perspective. I like how it turned out.

Fist of all sorry it is so small, but this was a character I was designing for a little platform game I was wanting to make. This is Nano Sim. He is a nanobot with the ability to absorb DNA, temporarily, to get through the level. Example of this would be that he had to giant wall in from of him and there is no way over it so he would go and download mole DNA and his hands would turn into mole paws and he could dig under it. Or if there was a big hole that he couldn't jump across he could download DNA from a flying creature to grow temporary gliding wings to get across, another example is there there is a big underwater area with a secret collectable but he can't swim normally, he could just download a fish DNA and dive under water and collect it. All the DNA he downloads he gets from monsters that are in the level that he is going through.

This is my most recent character, drew this like 2 days ago. Her name is Christy. In this picture I was focusing on putting her into a one point perspective environment. I think I pulled it off quite well.

This is most recent. I was practicing concept art when I came across this method known as the Silhouette method. This method is started out by using some reference images and making a silhouette of a building, then duplicate the silhouette however many times and use different transformation tools in Photoshop or something like it. Then change different things about the silhouette to make them look different from one another depending on what you are wanting to go for. Whether it is fantasy, like I was doing, or futuristic, etc. Then the brain starts to create shapes in its own eyes and you begin to think of different shapes or what things could be in the silhouette. It is very cool, but I have only just started messing with concept art skills.

The clip shows the basic idea of how to use the Soul Forge from my game idea. First you must use a special vial to seal the soul of a monster after you beat it then you take it to the Soul Forge and place the soul on one side and the weapon or armor on the other side then you take and activate the machine. This fuses the soul to the equipment causing physical and/or attribute changes. You can use up to 3 Vial per piece of equipment. The story would start out with only being able to use 1 soul for about the first half of the game then the forge gets an upgrade via a quest the hero had to go on allowing you to use 3 souls at once. Some combos would change things drastically as opposed to only using 1 soul based on properties of the souls being used.

This is an animation sequence I did for a monster I was going to design for my Game idea. The original title of the game was going to be "Tales of the Ancients" at least until I discovered that there already existed a "Tales of..." collection. This is Metortus. This simple creature was going to be an important creature. In my game there was this thing known as the Soul Forge. Which used the souls of monsters to customize weapons and armor. To get a understanding watch my Soul Forge video from my portfolio. I will do what I can to explain it quick and simple.

My main goal with this was to draw up a character from a different genre. I chose a rocker girl because I had never attempted it before and I thought it would be fun. This is what come out. I hope you like.

This was just a set of pictures focusing on putting one character in many poses while retaining a the same character in each. I have always had trouble with redrawing the same character multiple times and so this was helping to fix that problem. I feel I did quite a good job on it.

This is Veletta Hughs. She is a gar, also known as a spirit. She lived back in the 1800s with her brother. She was known to be a witch or sorceress at a young age. The village people she lived near were having troubles with things being blown to smithereens. The people knew that she was a sorceress and blamed her for all the destruction and countless deaths from the explosions and so they marched to her home and bared the house quietly while she slept and torched her home and no one would help her. She ended up being burned alive. In her last moments she clung tightly to a spherical rock with a smokey grey and white pattern. This is how she became bound to the rock in the afterlife. Several years later the very rock was found by Kale Valentine one his way home from work one late evening. The next day Veletta made her appearance known to Kale and told him of evil people known as the Gar and that she begged for Kale's protection. After Kale agreed Veletta granted him the Aura Arts

This is Kale Valentine. He is the Main character to my original graphic novel "Aura Arts" before I got busy with school. He is just your average high school, loner type of guy. He also worked as a Waiter at a small cafe. On his way home from a long night at work he tripped on a strange spherical rock that was extremely smooth to the touch and had a strange pattern of smokey grey and white. Interested in it he put it into his bag and continued home. Later he finds that a Gar had possessed this rock. Her name was Veletta Hughs. Through the course of the story she grants Kale this unique ability known as the "Aura Arts". His class of Aura Art was known as the destructive art. With the snap of his fingers and point at something he could easily blow up what he was pointing at.

This is Litia Valentine, She was a character concept that I was going to use for my own graphic novel "Aura Arts" before I got busy with School. She is the younger sister of the main character. She is skilled in martial arts and is able to see spirits. She is able to help her brother fight against the spirit beings known as Gars to defend against the troubles that they cause for Kale, her older brother and main character.

About Me:
Hello, my name is Adam Smith. I am a student of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh-Online Division. I just started collage about a year ago. I am going to be going into Media Arts and Animation for my major. As an artist in training I have to say that I am varied in a lot of forms of art. I draw, I 3D model, and I animate some of those models. I have just recently started working on skills in Concept art, as well. I have also dabbled in a bit of music, but I am still no where near professional. My hopes and dreams are to be able to work in a large industry as an animation artist. I love imagining what something would look like in a game, movie, or television if I were to be apart of the animation team. Thank you for taking the time to read this my bio here. If you pick me I will do everything...
