character animation.. now with sound! egads!!

well well... here's some post dated character animation. been so busy with layout that there really hasnt been much time to get round to posting stuff. but finally and incomprehensibly, all layouts have been signed off and i have already completed rough animations for 2 scenes. so far so good. watch this space, i will be posting some character designs and some pose-outs in the coming weeks. OMG christmas is almost upon us!!

One-Sheet too many

Argh its been a while since i posted. At last we're getting stuck into final film, and it appears more acutely now, how few hours there are in a day. Once the animatics get signed off, its a leaping swan dive into layout. Oh for joy. But for now, here's the one sheet i plan to present on friday.. the style and colour palette choices for the film. wish i had a better name for it though.

the drawn penultimatum

summore lifies...

I-Theatre Character pack

Well well...

for anyone who remembers, i swore that i was through with this little red menace!!

but she has risen to taunt me once again. im kidding really. the first time was torture, since i was experimenting with the style, but all the subsequent work has become surprisingly streamlined, and as such, not as distasteful. i admit i rather enjoyed. gasp! the red hen publicity material is expanding, the the supporting cast needed their own illustrated characters, which leads me here.

tuesdays with Adam

lifedrawing again. older drawings, cos i havent had the time to shoot any of my newer stuff. should get round to it eventually.

Dumpo the Magician

finally!! here we are, and absolution is mine! Dumpo has been tamed. animating this model has been rather challenging, especially since none of us were terribly excited about its design, but i figure its great practice. it amuses me, how grandiose everyone's ideas were. if im not mistaken, all of us changed and simplified our gags and timing, just to make it workable within the given time. all accounted for i think i worked maybe 2 full days on this little sod, but all said, im content with the result. wish i had more squash and stretch, but im gonna make sure i incorporated everything i wanted to do, but didnt, into the next assignment.

: : More Old Stuff : :

They keep popping out of the woodwork!

Old sketches from long ago

Wow... time capsule! Some stuff from a life time ago, when I was still a student at Curtin University in Western Australia...

I even have some old charcoal drawings, with heavy Photoshop post.

Experiment in watercolours

One of my very first ventures into watercolours. This was painted from an old photo of Shanghai if I'm not terribly mistaken

Some old Print work

A few examples of print work, from my time with Metafusion Singapore. At the time I never realised how much I actually loved the job. That said, its amusing to note the rate of attrition in this industry...
