Quick animatic


Short little animatic I put together, just more practice really :) Both figures were based on 20 minute drawings. No idea what's on the paper he holds up, that's for you to decide ;)

I'm thinking the next animatic will involve spacecraft fighting or something :D I've been playing more FFXIII - the fighting system is much better, but the characters are still irritating. It's just all so melodramatic, I can't get into the story at all :/
Bye for now!

Speedy and life drawings

A speedy testing out some of co-worker Maciej's new brushes :) A guy and his dog walking across a dry riverbed. Ignore the town!

2 more first person life drawings - the 1st drawn on an ICE train here in Deutschland, the 2nd in a kitchen!

In gaming news, I finished Mass Effect 2! Mordin died, NO IDEA how, but offscreen, no doubt in an undignified manner :( I felt gutted. Might just replay that whole scene (I of course made an alternate save before the whole end sequence!). Ahem, and I slept with Tali, as she'd made it that far with me, and stuck by me :)
Now onto Final Fantasy XIII, which at the moment pales in comparison to the mighty ME2. Auto battle? Only control 1 team mate? Using potions doesn't take a turn?? *Scoff* Final Fantasy for 5 year olds :(
Despite all this negativity, I am of course going to play it to death.

Speed paint

Just a Sunday speed paint, trying to work on my environments still :)

Watching through Fringe for the first time, pretty creepy show!
Bye for now!

2 animatics and a pic

Ullo all!
I decided to do some simple animatics! So there's no actual animation in them alas, didn't have the time (those are reserved for work which maybe I'll be able to show one day). The first is from the K Naut boards I posted earlier this year (the music is from Metroid Prime):

The second is the short tail of a young boy trying to summon a monster from a statue. It was drawn pretty quick, no shading or rendering or sound effects, just wanted to put it alongside the music (from Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea):

And a small underwater environment pic, which I'm practising more of:

Does anyone else find scanning planets in Mass Effect 2 tedious? Yet I must do it all!!

more stuff

Another new pic in my monster scribble series :) This here's a more fluffy one:

And my 3rd ZBrush piece, based on one of the previous scribble monsters in 2 posts below ( It was my first time using Zspheres and creating my own textures from Photoshop :) All a learning experience!

Hahah it looks well dodgy now! It didn't seem that bad from the drawing...Obviously would have to change it in some way, add more tentacles down below...! So yeah, cool stuff, hope I'm improving!
