So yeah, this is a li'l sample of my pitch stuff.
After nearly 4 months of work i pitched on monday and i must admit it could have gone worse. i've felt better about it through out the week, specially now quite a few people are saying they wanna work for me.
Not that im through yet, votings not till the tenth, if i dont get through then i'll post my animatic, if i do, then i'll probably just find the largest font i cant and post "fuck yeah" (y)


The drawing unit. 'nough said?

Im bored so..

Here's an update of the rhino riding picture.
Probably a few more hours of drawing left. need to add the background patterns which will be gustav klimpt-ish, the lillies in the bottom right, and shade a bit more.

Now off to storyboard. hurrah!


Work in progress

These are a few quick shots of a piece im working on at the moment for my drawing unit. and one of my desk... why not ey?
Not happy with the face (with a body) the other one is good.

Stress? oh god yes...

... while im epicly procrastinating:

Currently working on an animatic for my second year pitch (in 2.5 weeks time D:). never thought it could be quite such a pain to storyboard and time a film... im going slowly mad(er.)
About to start attempt no.2 at choreographing and boarding the fight at the end of my film ( a terrific showdown between two characters of such awesome that the world may break - even more badass than pirate zombie ninja godzilla D:... or not. but still).

wish me luck D:

Some Uni work.

Few scraps of work from early on this term. i swapped films in january to a CGI production called "At"
i was tasked with sorting out the composition on the desk, pretty much the sole background/set in the film.
Check out the director Pete's blog for a render of the character, Geoff, and some more on his portfolio
was a really good experience this, though not long lived, as i got to do a lot of composition work that really improved my ability to think about placement, and has really helped me over all, also, it was great to just do some decent detailed work (and have it appreciated... :p)

oh and the film is (obviously) about a violin maker... all i can say though ;)

Bit of random stuff from the autumn term.

And here, is a spot of work from the first film i worked on... not quite such an enjoyable experience, but a valuable one nonethe less, i did, in hindsight, learn a reasonable amount, just not the things youd expect.

the top image here is a tonal and atmosphere concept, i really liked this.... it wasnt used. at all.
the others are just general design, and process for the productionstill.
all the images on pretty backgrounds were composited for assessment.

Hopefully some personal work posts comming soon. :) toodles

Bit more book and a few thoughts

Evening... *tips hat*
Im not actually wearing a hat... but theres one near by, atop the head of a skeleton infact. and no, im not joking. he's also wearing a tie.

So yes, my plan is to update fortnightly, but it wont happen, you know this, i know this, the dapper skeleton knows this. its just one of those facts. i mean, discounting my portfolio, the last post of actual art before last week was in may. yes, may.

so my "fortnight" will almost certainly be monthly. but hey, its the though that counts?

in the meantime. heres a bit of book, its not much, but i dont wanna give it all away ;) you'll have to all wait till it (never) gets published.

This is the first page of chapter three (there are 5 more finished chapters at the moment)
Enjoy (if any one reads this)
Jonas’s head screamed out in protest at what ever at happened, mentally berating his subconscious and logging the instruction; never do that again! He experimented with opening his eyes and regretted it instantly; the world they tried (and failed) to focus on was golden yellow and spinning, like custard in a washing machine. Though it was hard to tell if this was a by-product of his psyche or not. Either way it made him feel incredibly sick so he shut his eyes and made another mental not to do that either.
He ached profusely, from his head to his toes there wasn’t a bit of him that didn’t hurt, and there were several places he didn’t know could hurt. He could feel something digging into his shoulder, and another into his left thigh. Groping blindly – his eyes still shut- his hands fell upon what felt like a boot and an elbow. He squeezed the latter making it twitch and shoved the boot away from his shoulder.
This minor physical effort seemed to drain him so he decided to refrain from further movement for the time being and instead tried to figure out what had happened.
It felt different now, warm, close and the air smelt musty, like a shed; earthy and natural- alive. The ground beneath him was gritty, small pebbles and sand sat atop rough stones. His hand brushed over a twig, dry and brittle. Had there been a cave in? Were these fragments of roof he could feel, roots, cracked stone.
Deciding that the mystery was great enough to warrant the pain involved, Jonas once again forced his eyes open a crack, they were greeted by light. There shouldn’t be light was the response his mind came up with, why is there light?
Ignoring the increasing protests his body made, he forced his eyes all the way open, and then once again very rapidly shut. The sky also shouldn’t be purple and yellow, his mind helpfully pointed out.
