My project is called 'Memento Mori', a point-and-click side scroller videogame inspired by the lives and poems of famous poets Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes. These images are some of my work concerning character designs and environment concept art. The game is supposed to be very art-driven and stylistic, and have both horror and mystery elements. I pushed myself to create a cast of characters and concept art for both an interior and exterior environment, as I never usually draw backgrounds. The experience was challenging, but very worthwhile. Hope you like them!

Character Designs for my main six characters. They're supposed to be quite sketchy and have a loose and 'unfinished' appearance.

Backgrounds: Concept art. Since I never usually draw backgrounds, I resolved to push myself and create concept art for an interior AND exterior environment for the game. Here I have the interior of a church for a Wedding scene in the game, and the exterior 'Well World' Forest- a metaphorical psychological landscape of the main character 'Sil' - an environment which is supposed to be both foreboding and slightly magical and curious.
