Designs and Animation

So I am kinda in holidays at the moment. I've been both lazy and busy. The last few days I have been lying around watching movies and playing Black Ops multiplayer and Space Station 13.
Tom and I have resumed production on our Boat Murdered animation. I've tried to start my own project as well but have found myself kinda busy. I'm doing a bunch of drawings for a commission at the moment too. Here is one of them! (or rather two)


The problem with commissions is when you design something you like, you know it isn't really yours to use any more.

Composited Animation Exercises

Here is my final assignment for my 2nd year of uni. Composited animation exercises!
Animated in Toon Boom and motion tracked and placed in After Effects. I need to work out a smoother more accurate motion tracking system if I wanna try it some more. I'm considering making a short film using this kind of technique. It is pretty quick to throw together (well... not the animation part). Very fun though!

Time flies when you're shining

I made a really highbrow video edit of the Shining.
Made with After Effects.

Koalas FINISHED

Yay. Our koala ad is finished after FOREVER. Yolly did a great job on the sound and today I got it all together and added in the final text and did the final export. I tweaked the laser sound effect a bit, because you could tell the initial one was "totally done by a girl" rather than "a 14 year old boy" as it should be.
