BA (Hons) Illustration and Graphics
My name is Afshaan Qamar.
I studied Graphic Design and Illustration, specialising in character design.
In this past year, I concentrated on creating characters for an adventure game based on the theme of Happiness. This led to the creation of "Jolie and Mardy". The two designs are opposites focusing on an optimistic protagonist and a misery consumed antagonist.
'Baby Warrior', 'Weird and Weirder' and 'Merman Philosopher' are character designs which were inspired by sayings. 'Merman Philosopher' was the first of these designs focusing on creating a character for a fantasy adventure game. 'Baby Warrior' was designed for a comical mobile game focusing on combat and exploration. 'Weird and Weirder's' focus was to create an aquatic beast which evolves.
For my final major project, I created character and monster designs including props and weapons.
These designs focused on combining elements of a visual novel style illustrations with traditional MMORPG's.
Upon graduating I aim to work on games focusing on PC games and Mobile games where I can continue to explore creature and character design.
