Character Malarky

Just some initial ideas and character stuff. I was experimenting to see if it's better to draw more close to human life or to have it cartoony. I still can't decide.

Houses and Perspective

I've spent all the weekend trying to learn a bit more about perspective as I really like drawing backgrounds but I find that's the area that lets me down. We've started initial ideas for our major projects in uni and I have to make an art book of my chosen idea for a tv series, short etc. I've been struggling to think of ideas, I've just been wasting days sat looking at the computer screen hoping some idea would just pop in my head. That didn't happened. All I got so far is about this "perfect world" with a secret hiding underneath it all. I don't even know what the secret is yet! It's all about this weird character who moves in to this society and uncovers their secret maybe. Anyway I wanted to design the neighbourhood for this kinda idea so weekend full of houses it was! After putting them up, I've realised some of the perspectives are wrong already...more practice it is.

Fishing and Flash!

I realised I hadn't got round to posting me final flash piece. I didn't know how to embed it from deviantart so I've started uploading it to I shall put it up if it ever finishes uploading. :D

Update - My Flash file is far too large to upload anywhere but deviantart :/

Here's the link..

Flash Link

Sunday, 16 October 2011


Back in uni now and the first project back is a 30 second animation made in Flash. I'm the design side so I was going to make a short animation that goes into an interactive game but that went tits up. I started the animation and that ended up being 20 seconds, oops! So I just carried on with it and it just kept getting longer and longer without no ending. I only managed to get it down to 50 seconds for the deadline tomorrow. I need to try and upload it but it's a hugeee file. I'll just post some jpegs for now.
