I’m Dom Dodd and I concentrate on visual development and character design for games and animation. I love cartoons, comics, games, and even doll designs. The tools I use most are Photoshop, Procreate, Maya, and ZBrush. In the past, I’ve participated as a group director for projects for the 2019 Walt Disney Imagineering Imaginations Competition, designing a theme park based on Norse mythology, and with the It Gets Better Project and Brave Trails Camp, creating a comic aimed for LGBT+ youth. I make content that I would like to have seen when I was a kid/teenager and hope to inspire the generations after me to explore their creativity and storytelling talents.
