Winter Life Drawing

Here are a few of my pieces that I did this evening. We worked with on of the Post-Grads Gaz . He gave us some interesting and dynamic ways to work. I really enjoyed it and it was nice to spend some time looking more on shape and volume of the figure. Which will help in both 2D and 3D.

Posing Max

As a little simple exercise I took a rig from the web and messed around with it. It's nice to get back into Maya and think about keyframes and pushing character poses. Even if the facial rigging here is not the best.

The Evacuee Animatic - WIP

As part of my group project I have been working on the storyboard for our short. It was fun working from Dave's Script and developed a storyboard from it. I think that the pacing works really well. Even though this is not the final version as it still needs to have added voices and sound FXs it still gives you a good feel for the piece.

The StackHouse Pitch

So through our Pre-Produtcion unit we have been working up to creating a pitch to perform infront of some in industry. I was really pleased with how my pitch went. I was a little shaky at first but I began to get into it and I am proud of how it looked in the end.

Plus the feed that was given back afterwards was really helpful and I look forward to applying it to when I have to pitch in the 3rd year.

Here is the PDF of the pitch that I used. It showcases the art style and a few pieces of concept art as well. The Stackhouse Pitch

Animated Exeter 2012 Ident Pitch - Colour Concepts

Some quick colour concepts that I wanted to illustrate how the difference between the jungle and the moster belly in terms of colour. Might develop this into a colour script.

Animated Exeter 2012 Ident Pitch - Rough stages

Our year has been given the great opportunity to work on the upcoming Ident for Animated Exeter. A few of us have split into groups and are now working on our own pitches to show at the end of this month. I have been working with Marc and Omari to develop an idea. Marc pitched it to me as the introduction to the Flintstones meets the chase scenes of the great Indiana Jones films. We worked on from the image that was given to us by the festival and was created by the incredible Brothers Mcleod. Here is the great piece of art.
So we did some concepts and roughed out a quick storyboard of how we are intending it to look. Rough Boards As I created this in ToonBoom Storyboard Pro I was able to create a simple animatic in a matter of seconds. Proving that our story and action can fit into the time contraint of 30 secs. A tough ordeal but I think it works really nicely.


After showing this to Andy he was impressed our progress and I look forward to hear how the pitch is received.
