I have always held the beautiful artwork in high regard. If something is visually arresting it can overcome most downfalls. Animation shouldn't be approached in any other way. In the same way a painter would, a set colour palette and textures can be utilized. New technologies (e.g. Maya) shouldn't replace previous techniques. We should, however, be able to adopt past teachings and improve them further utilizing the new technologies.
As part of a University environment I feel it is the duty of a student to experiment and try to push the boundaries and applications of what can be done with their chosen media. D'ARK will endeavor to invite the viewer to interact with and investigate into the world that is created alongside presenting a visually pleasing piece. Using 2D character, colour and texture styles while exploiting tools within a 3D environment and having an element of interactivity, I hope that D'ARK will be something new and exciting for viewers.
