About me: My name is Ashley Adams and I am a graduate of the Digital Media and Animation program at SUNY Alfred State of Technology. I served on the executive board of Alfred State Drama Club as the Public Relations chair. I currently design graphics for the cosplay idol groups Celestial Idols NY and Mirai Dreamers, as well as design freelance on commission.
I gained an interest in animation around the age of 11 when I discovered anime. I would spend many days teaching myself how to animate using only MS Paint and Windows Movie Maker. Eventually I moved on to using Flash and Photoshop to create animations and before I knew it I was attending college for my passion of animation.
I am primarily focused on animation and concept art, but I also have experience in motion graphics, 3D modeling, and video production. My passion is for bringing characters to life in fantastical stories that bring a viewers imagination to life.
Software Expertise: Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Flash, After Effects, Illustrator, Premiere, Audition), Autodesk (Maya and Mudbox), Microsoft Office Suite, Unity, Final Cut Pro, basic HTML and CSS
