I explored character designs, splash art, and graphic design for this project. I wanted to include a modern sci-fi feel to the designs while including chinese elements to pay homage to my culture.


Alis was an older character that I redesigned for this project. Raised to be an assassin, she will not hesitate to cut down any enemies with her Needle Rifle. I made sure to show her cold nature through her colors. The main dress on her is heavily inspired by a cheongsam.

Older design.


Braune was also another older character I decided to revamp. I wanted to convey the grief and loneliness of this character, as well as the connection to nature through his design. The scythe symbolizes his closeness with death.


Jayden was the last older character that I decided to redesign. I made sure his overall design conveyed a sense of unstableness and danger. He is the complete opposite of his sister, Alis, in colors but since they are still related, I made sure their shapes were similar.


A wandering painter who travels with his ink companions. I incorporated motifs of ink directly into his design, specifically Chinese ink brushes.


I leaned the most into the sci-fi modern aspect with Vita. This design was the most difficult to get right as I had to find a good balance of their synthetic nature while still fitting in with the rest of the roster.


Visual Development for a game mockup based off of my character Braune. This includes a key image, a character sheet, environmental sketch, map design, a secondary character, and UI design.

Miscellaneous character designs and drawings from my previous projects.

Hello, I'm Jaye Lin! I'm a Hong Kong American currently based in the East Coast and I love doing character based illustrative work. From a young age, I've always had a fascination with fantastical elements and character design, especially since I always had my head in the clouds and loved imagining scenarios that would not be possible in the world that we currently live in. Art is my main way to express my emotions and creativity.
