It was required for me to take charge of the small team of artists and direct them towards the main theme of the game. This includes; communication, direction and deadline organization. Work is sent directly to me where I review it and give feedback to the director to discuss and relay the information back to the artists. Besides directing the art team I am required to design all the characters featured within the game itself alongside environments. Using Photoshop CS6 I create digital art of basic character concepts, alternative outfits, reference sheets and technical drawing of all pieces of equipment. Weapon design is included as well as diagrams of use.

As a demonstrator I work with the Kuretake company on and off demonstrating their products via traditional work at large public events. The job entails coming up with initial sketches for the piece revolving around a particular subject, sketch out the final piece (the largest I have worked with is A0) and complete it at events. Producing the final pieces involves exceptional innovation to ensure all products requested are used within the piece. I have currently demonstrated for Kuretake at events such as; The Alexander hospital charity event (2014), October London MCM Expo (2014), Creative World (2015) Frankfurt, Germany event Polymanga (2015) Switzerland event (Inclusive of providing small workshops for attendees.) and October London MCM Expo.

Furthermore it was integral to hold meetings every week for the artists involved to keep them up to date and to reinforce a unified style and consistant quality amongst all members. As well as designing and creating ref sheets for a few of the key characters I am also responsible for producing storyboards for every chapter, taking care to methodically consider how scenes will be implemented in a visual novel styled game. UI designs; inclusive of menu systems, character image placement, over all theme and general stylization of the presentation in game as well as producing animations myself using Flash.
