And so, drum roll, here is the product of a hard year. This baby has had me in tears but I feel that it has been worth it. Don't Step on the Crack <------ click!

So, I haven't posted on here for a while as I have been colouring like crazy.. It's been painful but I'm liking the results so thats good.

This is one of many stacks of coloured frames, I think they look quick cool all together.

These are some colour scripts from my film. Well ok, they are grey scale. But hopefully will be getting help with my colouring (Fingers crossed).

Interim Presentation

I quickly put together my line tests so far for an interim presentation due in on monday. I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself so far, if I continue the way I have been for the past 2 weeks I should get the animation done in 3 weeks. Very exciting!

So I have been working hard on my animation, it's all rough but I'm pretty happy with myself.
Here are the good ones so far.

Ok, so this is a walk cylce which has to be broken in the middle by a hop over the crack, I just wanted to see if anything looked too awful, but obviously it won't jump around like it does here.
I did the girl's hop and the last Bogey vid today. Pretty happy with that.

Now to do it all again tomorrow.

Poster Design

My poster was a tad flat so I have designed my own font which is supposed to resemble wood block prints. Still playing with the design of the poster, but I like the alphabet.

We had a meeting about our film show posters this morning and it was drawn to my attention that mine was too flat.

It was suggested that I look at some wood block prints for inspiration not only on the image but on the text. I think this is a really good idea so here are some collated images I think would look good with my design.

Boy try

I think I need to get some real paper and go crazy with some scissors to help with this design.

Mood board

I have decided to make my human characters in flash, using the collage technique I used for some of my monster art. I want the characters all to have very definite shapes, similar to the monks in The Secret of Kells. I feel that by having a fixed shape they will be more defined, and they will be separated from the monster a bit more. Whereas at the moment they look like they are all in the same world I want them to not see the monster at all. By making their design clear and separate I hope to illustrate this better.  
I intend to have different shapes for each individual corresponding to their personalities.
