Monsters

At the moment I am trying to develop an idea i had for a short film a while ago but I'm having a little trouble with the writing process. So I thought if I had a better idea of what one of the characters looked like I could use that as a base.

Here's some concepts:

Projection Mapping

This year I got to work on two different projection Mapping Projects. Both were quite strange to work on as we were learning new things as we were doing them. Even though we had a sound understanding on how it works, the organization involved is quite different.

I can't find any footage but the first project was to do with the Mercedes S Class launch in Beijing and we were working with Pixomondo.

The second was a projection for the Beaufort street festival, this almost didn't go ahead  but last minute we managed to make something which people enjoyed =)

You can check out a highlight reel here :

Mickey!

I've seen some of the new Mickey shorts that have been made which were apparently directed and produced by Paul Ruddish which is cool.

I always could not draw Mickey for ages and so didn't try again for ages and thought tonight I'd have a go. I actually kinda got it looking alright =)

plus the little squirrel from Emperors New Groove

Walking Dead Sketch

Here is a pretty quick sketch up I did of Herschel from The Walking Dead series .... after watching the latest episode, he was so pained so had to do it.

I also imagine him singing that song ... "oh you girls will never know, no you girls will never know, how you make a boy feel"

tadah!!

WASAs JOG ON Animation Short Nomination

I haven't posted here for a while, I've been quite busy with work and things which is good. Doing some visual effects on a short film by a local Director Antony Webb. Helping out on a online web series Similar & Familiar by Balthazaar Media with some CG backgrounds which is fun. I will also be doing some more colour grades as well!!!! I'm not sure what sort of work I like doing the most lol.

Plus recently was the 25th West Australian Screen Awards or WASAs. I made a short film a while ago for the Syndey GRAPHIC festival. I made it pretty much on a whim in 2 months just on my laptop by myself, this is why the film is relatively simple and quite limited in it's animation style but I basically wanted to see if I could tell a story within that time.

The film was a finalist, and then I got two friends Robert Woods to score the film and Xoe Baird to to a quick mix and the film was a nominee for the WASAs. It is also now being screen at the CineFestOZ film festival down south and will by on WestTV. You can check out a 20 second clip below.

Iron man 3

Saw Iron Man 3 and decided to draw the armor :) the movie was visually spectacular. Had some good moments but felt like it was trying to do too many things at once and so all the little bits didn't have much depth or interest. But here's my picture :))

Here's my bear picture all done and on my 100th post on this blog =). The next one will I'm going to try a different style.

Also after having this blog for a little while, I have learnt that a lot of people are searching for turtle tattoo designs, it accounts for about half the traffic haha.

Tracking Rendering Compositing

I am currently trying to teach myself more about tracking and compositing onto live footage with a 3D element with things like reflections and other more complicated stuff. I tracked a chest in my house which had a lego AT-ST on top, I got all that information and I reconstructed the scene. I modelled the AT-ST and rigged it enough to move. Here's a test render so far. Next step is to add some lasers, composite onto the video footage and make it look believable.

Loop de Loop Feb

Loop de loop is an animation competition that's been going for a couple of years. You make an experimental animation loop to do with a theme for the month and there's a public vote. No prizes just for fun.

This is my second turn at doing it, used toon booms textured line feature and I draw a background on water color paper.

Here it is :
