Showreel 2011

Finally!  A link to my showreel. 

Autumn Sun

When we're out on walks, my dog likes to stand in patches of long grass, soaking up sunshine where possible.  When I get stuck for something to draw, she provides a little bit of inspiration.  :)

Some Owls...

Everyone's into owls these days but here are mine...

FX Drip Test

Ok, this is the first bit of fx animation I've done using Flash (so go easy on me!) :)

I recently decided to brush up my skills again with Flash as it's been quite a while since I used it. I didn't really know what kind of character to animate so I opted to do some water dripping instead - after all, I have been animating various effects for over a year now.

I was pretty pleased with the results although the timing isn't right in places. It was a good exercise and I learned lots from it which I'm now using to do a short character thing, so stay tuned!

Here is what I just finished working on -

I was an FX animator for this project, animating various elements such as water and mud splashes/waves/ripples. Also animated the shadows and highlights on the characters frame by frame. This one was fun, I learned lots from it and can't wait to do more effects animation. :]

Titeuf, Le Film

While I'm in trailer-mode, here is the trailer for the Pathe produced animated feature I just recently worked on - Titeuf, Le Film.  For this project, I was producing 2-d effects animation and spot keys for characters.  

Much like during The Illusionist production, I got to work with some fantastic artists and came away with some great friends.

The Illusionist

If you haven't watched the trailer for the Sylvain Chomet animated feature film, The Illusionist, please take a look just now!  It has had great reviews worldwide and received nominations for both the Academy Award and Golden Globe for best animated feature film.

I really loved working on this film, I met some amazingly talented people and made some great friends.  :-)

Watercolours From Last Year

Even though most of my colouring is done digitally now, I still like to get the watercolours out every so often.  Here's a couple of pieces I made for friends, the first one is my own, the second is of course Hayao Miyazaki's Totoro characters which I don't lay claim to!  :-)

More Being Victor

Ok, here's some coloured images I created for Being Victor.  Check out Jeremy Smile at the bottom, he's my favourite.  I forgot to say in the previous post, all these images were drawn and coloured by me and are the property of Shed Media.  :-)
