This project revolved around the creation of a Gothic themed Vampire world, with characters reflecting and inspired a research document – delving into the lore of vampirism around the world. This tackled how different cultures created lore and fiction to explain science they didn’t quite understand, from the classic European vampire, to the ‘Jiang Shi’ – the hopping vampires of Chinese legend.
This Document shall focus on the process and inspirations leading to the creation of my concept art book ‘Claret’ : A vampire and Victorian themed setting. This document shall be a visual representation of my journey through this year, containing everything from sketches to final concepts. The separate slides contain headings as well as dividing title pages –Descriptions and process are located within my development document.
This document shall contain the various amounts of research I’ve focused on; primarily revolving around vampire folk from around the world, Victorian horror analysis, exploring various aspects of the time period such as fashion, technology etc. Illustrated report & bibliography
