Profile image Finbar Coyle

Hi and welcome to my website!

I am a Character Designer and Illustrator with over ten years experience in the animation industry. My focus is on creating appealing story driven characters and imaginative concept designs for a variety of different mediums, in particular the animation and video game industries.

In 2007 I earned a Bachelor of Animation from the National Film School of Ireland. After my graduation I trained in workshops like “The Secret of Character Design and Visual Development” with Enrique Fernandez and “Creating Appealing Characters for Animation and Video Games” with Taylor Krahenbuhl at Idea Academy in Rome.

I have worked for leading animation studios in Ireland and the U.K on several TV-Series as a Character Designer and Prop Designer. Clients have included Nick Jr, Cartoon Network, Universal Kids, BBC Cbeebies and others on a wide variety of projects.

If you are interested in creating original characters or illustrations for your project please email me at
