WordPress –

As shown above it is rather simple to display images of varying size together in wordpress however the images are still rather large and don’t show many all together.

Rating – 3/5

Facebook is interesting as it’s organisation is rather bland and hard to edit, the fact that all pictures a put together in one slideshow is good however.

Rating 2/5

Conclusion –

Judging from my two selected prospects I have chosen to put my portfolio on wordpress as I am used to the software and able to upload blocks of text alongside the artwork.


Gallery of own work


I have a passion to draw and make digital art and I also use more conventional tools such as; pens and pencils.

Lately I’ve taken to making edits of old cartoons to express myself a little more. I find these edits quite relaxing to make as they give me a chance to think about how I want designs to come out before rather than as I’m drawing or modeling.

Personal statement

I believe that I have developed a vivid imagination throughout my years as shown by my many character designs in my portfolio. I believe that I have also gained a good eye for detail as I can be quite pedantic when it comes to my designs. As for team efforts I’ll say I’m rather good at taking orders but I struggle to be a leader due to social anxiety.

Skills Summary

Professional Skills

I believe that I am quite proficient with Photoshop, Premier Pro & After Effects.

I am also adept with social media such as Facebook, Twitter & Youtube as well as able to create websites with WordPress.


Sheffield College 2015 (September) – Present

The Sheffield College; UAL Level 3 – Extended diploma in creative media

In the final semester of the first year I developed a product for my final major project. I developed an animated short story using traditional hand drawn images. I showed an understanding of subject context, carried out thorough research which assisted my production skills.
In the second year I am involved in developing my proof of concept into a fully working product. This requires me to show an understanding of subject context, be able to independently carry out research and interpret this information to support and develop my ideas.
