Southern Faces

A couple of portrait doodles, done just for the fun of drawing different people. It's interesting trying to make the group share similarities but give them each their own personalities.

Portfolio Update

After visiting Blitz Games Studios a couple of weeks ago and receiving some very useful crits on my portfolio, (for which I am extremely grateful), and in preparation for FMX, today has been a portfolio tweaking day.

I still intend on creating more concept work for this and have come to the realisation that I'll probably have to have two portfolios running in the near future - one for illustration and the other for concept art. As this is unlikely to happen in the next two weeks this is most likely what I'll take with me to Stuttgart.

Here's what I've got so far. Any thoughts are welcome :)

These will also all be up on my portfolio blog for those who'd like to follow that too.

Gums Update II

A long awaited update for Gums. The animation is mostly finished now and I've moved onto colour and compositing. After that it'll be mostly fine tuning and tweaking. It's good to see the light at the end of the tunnel let me tell you.

Enjoy :)

The (not so) New World

After spending the past four days colouring frames for Gums I decided to have a break and do a little world building.  This is Thea the world that most of my ocs come from. The guys you'll have seen the most so far are the southerners. (The name for themselves is the Solaai)

It wasn't until tonight that fellow creator Kovah and I came up with the name of the world and the landmasses, even though they've existed in the story for quite a while but once we had names one thing led to another and here we go.

The naming here is actually mostly what the southerners have called everything as most of the action occurs on Ellisto and they're the main explorers and book keepers so they get to pick ;). The Titoans probably use very similar names considering the southern ancestors first sailed from Tito to colonise the southernmost parts of Ellisto. No one knows what names the Ganyeans use because no-one's really had the chance to have a chat with them.

Enough of my rambling...frame colouring gives me waaay to much time to think about these things. Enjoy,

When Photoshop crashes and loses 8 frames of colouring there's only one thing to do.....paint an Andalite! Yes sir!

This fella's an alien from Animorphs, a book series I was seriously obsessed with a couple of years ago. Haven't drawn any fan art for almost five years so felt like giving it a go ;)

Actually this guy's my version of Visser Three as I used to see him in my head so not reaaaallly an Andalite....but I won't go into more incase the inner Ani-nerdiness escapes from the corner it's been put into.
