Recently Ive had literally no time to draw with all this constant animating. Trying to get all the rough animation for my final film done by May and hopefully it should all be finished and ready to hit the festivals by the beginning of June. Im looking to get a trailer cut quite soon as well... WOOO! Im looking into setting up a crowdfunder to try and raise money for the hefty price tag CalArts is charging where i'll be giving away signed prints, caricatures, DVD's of my films and much more in exchange for donations, so keep an eye out for that guys!!!
Here's me playing around with the pencil and watercolour brushes in tv paint resulting in a dog walk cycle for funsies because i got a little bored :) until next time...

Sketch Dailies: Troll

Now that my Sky ARTS ident is pretty much finished, i can get back to my final film again. but first... a little drawing time to treat myself. Here’s a troll for the Sketch Dailies thing. it kind of evolved into more of a caveman troll sort of thing, but hey, thats the fun of sketching.

Final Film Concept Art

Here's a final look piece of concept art for my final film. The art style is heavily inspired by the latest Mickey shorts. Im pretty happy with the stylisation of this concept, so hopefully the final result will look similar or even better :)

Playing with exaggeration

Before i start animating my final film, i wanted to play around with the facial structure of one of my films characters. I kept away from the character sheet and just focused on pushing and pulling the expression. I knew i could push the squash and stretch a lot more so I decided to try and see how far i could go. Hopefully i’ll try and exaggerate it some more, as thats my main aim for my character animation this year.

My final film story boards will never get done…

I realised i forgot how to draw the face of the main character of my film so had a play around at re learning his facial anatomy and re stylised him a little, i think im liking his new look much more, but theres still a few areas i need to play around with
