Freelance Concept Designer || || Instagram; || Facebook; || Prints;

I'm Gavin O'Donnell, a 26 year old, Irish concept designer currently working for Brown Bag Films in Dublin, Ireland. Clients include Daedalic Entertainment, Arts School Media among many others. I've had work published in ImagineFX & Infected By Art Volume 4.

In my free time I'm constantly exploring new tools, technologies and doing online courses. This constant search feeds into my art and drives the look as well as the storytelling techniques.


The Sword in the Stone
Daily 22!! Some new personal experiments, 3D Coat + Marmoset + Paintover in Photoshop

Daily Sketch

An imaginative piece for the daily sketch challenge I'm doing

Started up a little challenge #masterstudychallenge on Instagram to encourage daily sketching so here's the first week of work. 
If you want to get involved join me over on…

The aim is simple, find an old or modern master painting on google or Pinterest and study it for 60 minutes - I just use the stopwatch on google to keep track. Try to find the colours without colour picking and simplify as much as you can. You have to be efficient to fit it into an hour. Working zoomed out from the canvas also helps you to simplify and focus on the big shapes at first.

Summer Snooze
Here's a personal piece I did during this challenge I've been doing. I started up a challenge to encourage myself to do daily sketching, I study from old and modern masters for 60 minutes and then try to apply it to my personal work. I'm currently on daily 19!!
