Artist Statement

Video games are a playground where people put their skills to the test against a challenge in order to win. The time and effort one spends with the character used becomes their identity, a replacement of oneself in the virtual space, an avatar. In my work, Fighting Game Character Design in Project Fighters, each character has a visual, narrative, and game play difference distinct to each individual. Does a person relate more to the caring round nature of Daddy, or do they want to be a sadistic oppressive menace like Habu. This gives the player a higher level of freedom in how they would like to express themselves in the game. The character design I create focuses on these elements of player and character self-expression through use of digital tools to create a variety of experiences. The Project Fighters Character Art Book, gives greater insight into the creation of each character, showing the development stages from a dirty napkin sketch to the final illustration.
