SKILLSET

About-Richard-Allport.png

Despite my Parents’ choices of haircut for me, I have always enjoyed designing from an early age!

All in all there isn’t much that I haven’t designed and or created and I also offer a style match service where I can design to fit in with an existing project’s visual styling. And I am happy to do Art Tests so you can see how I react to a brief. I can work from my own studio or in house, as part of a team or I can run/ oversee a team.
 

My skillsets and Project History are listed below:

  • Art and Animation Direction for 2D, 3D CGI and live-action.

  • Traditional and Digital Illustration and Concept Art.

  • Design and realisation of characters, creatures, environments, gadgets, props, special effects make up, costumes and scale models

  • Storyboarding and direction from scripts.

  • Script/story analysis and breakdown.

  • Conceptual art.

  • Pitch development.

  • Image and photographic manipulation.

  • Art Style matching.

  • Prosthetic make up design and creation.

  • Maquettes.

  • Scale models.

  • Sculpture and mould making.

  • Fine art.

  • Team leading, project management, scheduling and budgeting.

  • Client liaison.

I have worked for over three decades in Commercial Art industries developing a mutli-disciplinary skillset providing solutions ranging from traditional art techniques, 3D sculptural designs, digital concepting and image manipulation and have worked alongside projects using Computer Animation, VR development, Animatronics, Puppetry, Motion Capture and Photogrammetry.
