A wall mural in Newcastle College. Basically my leaving present.
Work in-progress sticker designs. The plan is to get these printed on a sticker sheet and sell them around the net.
I've had quite a lot of positive feedback from instagram and twitter, which is great!
Random assortment of pictures I've created, all digital.
Project Space Cat
Space Cat is a project I'm slowly working on. You may recognise the character design as I used them for my window vinyl installation.
It's most likely going to be a comic with some sort of animated features. It's early in development still tho, just getting to grips with his character design and them expanding into further aspects.
Happy Birthday GIF
A digital and physical birthday card I made for my girlfriend. Decided to throw it into After Effects and give the image some little animation for fun! Quite enjoyed drawing this one, although I did have some trouble due to the textured brush I used.
Pleased with how it came out!
"Legend of Zelda" Character Design Concept
Character Design References challenged artists to redesign a character from the Legend of Zelda series. Really enjoyed doing this despite it being unfinished.
Installation at Newcastle College. Started off as a small biro sketch on A4, traced on PhotoShop and then forwarded onto illustrator before it was laser cut onto a vinyl sheet. Had a blast with this one.
Old picture of me for size comparsion!
Character Model Sheets
Bunch of character turnaround sheets I did a while back during my years at university. The last one is from a professional project created for Middlesex University. You can see more of the project on my client section of my site. http://www.jan-swidan.com/new-index/#/character-design/
Game Boy Animation
Animation I did at the end of my first year of Uni!
The first image is a collaboration with Matt Herms, colourist for the Sonic The Hedgehog, Mega Man and Power Rangers comics.
The second is Pete Murphy, for the site Sonic the Comic.
Pencils and inks from yours truly!
These were created in 2015 to hand out during my final show.
