I ain't posted here in a while so I though I would grace y'all with my presence. I stumbled upon this amazing animation on youtube. A stop-motion animation which has to be one of the most graphic animations I have seen in this medium. The Blood animation is impressive and works really well with the cartoon style. The Soundscape of this animation is also really impressive. It has a nice creepy quality that adds to the suspense.

Aardman + Sony Pictures Animation = NEW MOVIE!

Aardman seem to be back and this time they hooked up with Sony Pictures Animation to create this festive film that is set to come out next year. Sony Pictures Animation were the creators behind "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" which was a surprisingly great film. So Lets hope that with the help of Aardman studios too this is going to be a great Christmas treat.

After having A look at this trailer I still have my doubts about the look and style of it but yet again it is only a trailer and I've said that before and the film has been Amazing so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Off to the Woods

Here is one of my finished paintings for my 3 piece background project. More to come.

I decided to try and switch the colours round as the lighter colours would be closer to where the sun is. I also added some shadowing too.

I also went in and added highlights to the rock and tress. Giving it a more dimensional look.

A Lovely Bit of Animation

I was looking over some of the winners of the 11 second club and I stumbled upon this one. I simply love the animation in this one. The emotion is captured so well and it really has a sense of drama.

It was created by Arthur Gil Larsen and I can't wait to see what he produces next.
Here is a link to his amazing blog. click here
