Tim is a freelance concept designer, illustrator and author based in Australia, specializing in character design and story development. He has worked in the French comic book market as well as animation and video games. His client list includes companies such as Editions Delcourt, Gunfire Games, Animal Logic, Ankama, Blur studios, Blizzard Entertainment, and Wizards of the Coast.
Tim has worked on multiple French graphic novels (bandes dessinées), including books he has written, designed and drawn from start to finish. He has also worked in video games doing blue sky concept design and world building, as well as following through and taking those characters vehicles, props and environments to the final model sheet. He has extensive experience and knowledge that can only come from years of hard work, self-study, and the love of creating a world from nothing.
CDW Studios really values having Tim as a teacher and mentor to our students, sharing his unique wealth of knowledge, helping to develop design skills and a strong work ethic. Tim’s best advice when asked on how to improve is to simply ‘draw more’.
If you had to pitch an idea/movie/game, what 5 or so images would you use to describe the entertainment property? This advanced illustration course is more about illustration than concept art, putting together highly planned, narrative-filled and finished images from key points of the story that will describe and sell what is important about the story, and inform the tone and look of the project.
