I'm Cole Kirkpatrick - a concept artist and illustrator with a passion for making games.
In 2018, I will be graduating Champlain College of Vermont as a Game Art and Animation major.
My strengths lie in unique creature and character design, and I'm still strong in environmental concepts and more as well. I'm proud of my ability to adapt to new styles, and it has helped me in making the games I've made so far.
In the games I've made so far, I've worked as a lead artist, concept artist, animator, background artist, and more often than not, all four of these all at once

During the three months we worked on this project, I contributed....
It was a big learning experience, delving into the depths of game art in action! If you want to see more of my first game, visit Hyper Neon Fishing's website, or download it on our Itchio page and play it!
A short project that involved making several environment, fauna, and flora illustrations. These were all made to look like those that would be found in a field guide. In the end, I put them together in Adobe InDesign, along with text descriptions of each.
