Sculpting...haven't decided what he is

This is a character based off a couple of quick sketches that has evolved a bit better than expected.

New Digital Painting WIP

Nice burst of creativity. Here's about an hours worth of work tonight.



Indy sculpt WIP

So here's another sculpt. I've used Klean Klay because this is a test for what will be a slightly larger Indy in Super Sculpey Firm, which I will paint. Still finishing the hands and he needs his gun holster too. Getting close to settling on a pose.

With the 30th Anniversary BluRay out soon, I thought I'd celebrate with a sculpt of the little guy.

Animating one of my character designs



This is a quick pencil test of one of my character designs from previous posts. I now have a sequence in my head that I hope to complete in the coming months.

...a bit more....







And here's my short film from 2010...finally uploaded!

Some animation...



Here's the opening shot of an animated short I'm currently working on.
The music is "Clawhammer Medley" by Steve Martin. Gotta love banjo.....




This is a pencil test from the same project.


And now...Digital Painting and Drawing


Ok, after such a huge break following my Animated Short, I think it best to update the blog with some new digital paintings/drawings and animation......


          This is a character that I am developing. He's starting to take on a life of his own...

A Little Walk

Currently working on a walk for the Boy in the story. He's based very much on my son, down to clutching his favourite Brachiosaurus.

Alakazam!

Ok...another post while I'm in the mood. This is the current version of Sam being turned into a bat. The animation is now finished and coloured. The composite is still WIP but getting very close.
