Super Cat!


So here's a picture where I've fiddled around with the line work again. I really like this style, and I haven't located my previous cat images, so I thought I would just draw a new one. I've adopted the speech bubble specifically from my Edgar project, and I feel that it definitely wont be the last time that I will do so. I have definitely fallen in love with it. 

Enjoy!

Dancing Skeletons


So I noticed that for the huge amount of photography I do, I haven't really been putting anything up on the blog. I haven't been as involved recently with photo shoots, or all of that fun and fancy stuff, but I do hope to get back into the swing of things when I get the time, after all this Uni fun. I do have an intensive course coming up in commercial photography, which should be brilliant! I hope to get a few more photos worked up before then, but for now here's this one. It's an old photo from year 12, when I was looking into the human mindset around beauty and societies view on it. I had half of my face made to look like a ballerina, and the other half to look like a skeleton. Working with a tripod, and my dads Nikon, I went around and took different photos. This one was one of the few that I didn't actually work up, until today. It was a good project, and I hope to tackle the themes again at some point in the near future, after a possible zombie
 photo session. 
Enjoy!

The Light: running storyboard, start and finish


video video


Wowza! So how long has it been since I've actually shown anything animated? Oh that's right! It was my first ever post! Sadly I don't have anything as developed as that...yet, but this here is something new I am attempting. I came to a standstill with my project, in which I am focusing on the backgrounds, so I decided to make an attempt of a storyboard, really rough drawings of course. So with the lovely help of AfterEffects, I have something.....sort of workable, just to show where I am going with the project. This is a long term animation that I have had going in plans for a while now, and I'm really excited to have gotten this far with it. It's really nice to actually get thoughts into action for once, so yay that I can get past the block.
I'm still learning how to work the program, so it's a matter of just getting better from this point. I will get the rest of it done in due time.

Enjoy!



DISCLAIMER: I do not claim to own the song, this is purely the genius of Sara Bareillis The Light. It is an amazing song, and one that I have definitely fallen in love with, this here is to show my animation and my timing, although not perfect yet, and not to gain acknowledgement of her work.

Dinosaur Circus


This is definitely different to what I have usually done! I have had so much fun with this picture though. Over the last few weeks my drawing have gotten a little crazy, so there are actually a few images that follow this pattern, and I may or may not put them up, they get a little creepy as well. This is what happens when you collaborate with crazy people, awesome crazy people. I really liked doing this picture! My initial attempt with this, was to draw an image that mimicked the realistic style of my friend at Uni, who is an insane drawer of realistic dragons. I did find myself thinking that the image was too serious, so I then added in the top hat and the moustache, yep the dinosaur/ dragon has a moustache. SO I showed her the image, and one thing led to another, and the imaginative birthing of a dinosaur/ dragon circus ring leader was born. I wasn't sure about putting it up, but it was a lot of fun, and there will probably be a few more images to follow.
Enjoy!

Creature1


It's really interesting to see how the Edgar project has affected my linework! I have fallen in love with using this simplistic linework with some of my smaller images, and I have a few of them that I have drawn around the place now! This is just an example of how I've adapted the line weight effect, seen with the background characters that I posted previously, and there are more that I will put up on the blog. I have also come up with a cat character in this linework, that I hope to put up when I get to scanning it onto the computer.
Enjoy!

Playing around with lines! A lot of fun! This is the line work that I'm hoping to get better at, and aim towards, with a lot of my work in the future. I also tried using the established linework from my "Edgar the Seagull" project in a different format/ context, and it worked out really lovely! I'm really beginning to like this style. I still have my bold colouring, I think it is something that I will ultimately stick with.
Enjoy!
