Concept Art

Somnum: Personal Project

Taking a Concept Art class I created and developed art for a theoretical game throughout the semester. This game takes place in a surreal world shaped by dreams, loosely inspired by the Greek myth of Orpheus and his two siblings who control dreams. The visuals are inspired by forest animals mixed with aquatic elements to create an alien-like fantasy world.
