Hi, I've just finished my final year at CDW Studios/Flinders University where I focused on environment and keyframe concepts. I also dabbled in hard-surface design, an area that I am currently trying to develop further.

Triteia Keyframes: 

The keyframes and accompanying sketches and models below were created as part of my final year at CDW Studios/Flinders University. 
I created a rough outline for the opening episode of a space adventure, sketched out a series of 10 keyframe scenes, and then chose 3 to develop into finished paintings.  

Keyframe 01:

  The Escape
- the crew of the HMS Extravagance flee from enemy gunships.

The 10 keyframe sketches outlining a rough story intro.

HMS Extravagance - the hero spaceship:
The main design challenge here was to create a large-scale (carrier type) ship that has both a flight and landing mode. It launches waves of fighter drones, instead of manned spacecraft.  

Keyframe 02:

Surprise Attack 

- a short while after the HMS Extravagance crash lands on an alien planet.

Keyframe 03:

- Two of the ship's crew surface to find themselves inside a vast geothermal vent.
