Being Victor

At last, an update!  I've been really busy with the day job and, in honesty, a little bit lazy at night.  So anyway, here's some new stuff - these are just a few of the character designs I created for a tv programme called Being Victor that aired at the start of September this year on MTV.  My job involved creating the character designs and scene elements which were scanned in and coloured before being handed on to my colleague who made short animations using them.  The animations appear on the blog as accompaniments for the live action series.  The art style - established by another artist - was very different to my own, so it was a good challenge for me to try something new.  A stickler for proportion and anatomy, I found it a bit disconcerting in the beginning to draw like this!  I've been eager to put some of these up for a while though, so I hope you like what you see.

If you're interested, here's the website -

And now, on to the drawings!  Thanks for looking.

El Matador! #2

I did another sketch of the Matador character for the game, tried to simplify the shapes a bit for modelling in maya/zbrush...I'm quite happy with this.

Sketchbook: August 2010 #1

Keep dreaming about a bear living in the garden where I grew up, so I think that influenced these little sketches.

Bull Run: Runner #1 #2 and #3

Quick character design ideas for a game called Bull Run that my boyfriend is working on with a mutual pal of ours.  It's based on the running of the bulls in Pamplona.

Studies: Hands

A selection of some hand studies I did in May after a ridiculously long, shameful break away from drawing!  Finally got round to making a wee collage of them for the blog.

El Matador!

Another sketchbook drawing that begged for some colour.  This one was fun, hope you like it.  :-)

Urban Red #1

We have an urban fox (or possibly more than one) living very close by that likes to wake us up at odd hours of the night, this is the first of some sketches I did featuring the little beggar.

....Six months after I started this, I've finally got my act together.  So here's a doodle from my sketchbook, I did it while back home last week and coloured it up today.
