Hey everyone, it's been a long, long time since I blogged anything (excluding the 2 posts earlier tonight of course) but anyways 2 months is a long time and its mainly due to this!!
I teamed up with Laurent Rossi to do the FX on this Street Fighter homage. It was a really amazing project to work on and I had loads of fun. Animating all the fireballs and explosions is an area of FX that I havent had a chance to work with before and it really cool! So I did all the FX animation and Mr Rossi did the character animation, BG, colouring and compositing! Pretty much everything else, this guy is a machine, go check out his blog!
This is a progression reel of the project.
at the end of September I will be bringing my animation time in Luxembourg to and end. I've been living here for almost a year and have had a great time working in TV animation. Im going to be moving back to London to work as an FX animator on the 2nd series of 'The Amazing World of Gumball!'
Im so excited and really cant wait to start working on such an amazing series! Its going to be soo much fun!!
I will try and post up more often (at least once a month?... maybe)
So yesterday me, Gill and some other guys all went drawing to the small zoo in Luxembourg. Well it turned out to be a great day out! The zoo was a lot bigger than i thought it was going to be and is a really nice place to go and sketch the animals.
Hey everyone, so at the moment im inbetween projects here in Luxembourg. Looking forward to starting work as a character animator in July! Will be a scary change from FX work but I plan to keep up personal FX animation in my own time.
At the moment im working on improving my drawing skills, i've been reading Force: Dynamic life drawing for animators, which is a brilliant book, really great! Im also working on some FX stuff for a project with a friend of mine Laurent Rossi. Please check out his blog!
and lastly this is a teaser for the series I just finished working on as an FX animator, I was pretty much the only FX guy on the series and it was a hard journey but I learnt so much and got to animate so many cool things that i've never tried before. Looking forward to seeing it on TV soon.
