Alela Diane and Wild Divine

Probably shouldn't have found the time to do this with the amount of animation work i've still got left to do, but folk/acoustic singer Alela Diane asked for some new tote bag/t-shirt designs so i thought i'd give it a go. I'd like to consider it to be a productive form of procrastination.

living the life of an animator...

The past two weeks have seen me earn a lot of respect for all animators....i have also told my housemate studying animation that he must be mad. After having to restart my final piece twice ( losing a sum total of 60 seconds and a weeks solid work...ouch). I've finally settled on a style...yipeeee. I've definitely learnt a lot from all the various mistakes i've managed to make, but i'm pleased with this final look. Now back to drawing the other frames.

Dandy-Lion Final Images

These are the final images for Dandy-Lion: a fashion and lifestyle publication created by third year fashion student Aisha Green. The photographs I was responding to and using within the images were the work of Photography student Holly Smith.
I really enjoyed working on this project, the brief was great: autumnal images related to the new forest, which gave me a lot of scope for experimentation.

It was decided that the tree image in the previous post was slightly stark, Aisha suggested adding more detail to the branches but i decided to start the piece from scratch. Instead of using the lino print i did a softer drawing from the photograph; biro, fineliner and watercolour.

Now back to the land of animating...lots and lots of animating...
