BA (Hons) Animation
I am Reece Atkins, background artist, 2D and 2D Motion graphics animator and Illustrator. The style of my work is generally more cartoonish, inspired mainly by Shonen anime, most notably Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan even drawing out some of the characters from these shows in my spare time.
During my time at NUA I have been able to develop an understanding of the 12 principles of animation and to apply that to the given briefs. In my second and third year I have been able to build from those established fundamentals, utilizing timing and storytelling through animatics and storyboarding; developing creative ideas into appealing short sequences, detailed background art and stylised character designs.
