Here is a project from my first year at Teesside Uni. I have brought it back from the dead and put it on here because I plan to remake it in 3D. Not immediately, but it will get done at some stage. For this version we weren't supposed to fully animate it. Hopefully it will be freakin awesome when its done properly. I will be doing it from scratch, including new character designs and everything so it will take a while on top of some other stuff I am doing, BUT I think it has potential to be a nice piece so I shall put some effort in.

Return to 2D



This is a digital painting I just completed in Photoshop entitled "75" after the infamous Dublin bus route which is the most unpredictable bus of all time, not to mention what goes on on it.

Taken from a random sketch I had in a sketchbook, it began as a means of testing out my new graphics tablet. Seeing as it has been so long since I actually drew something I was so rusty that I decided to go for a messy paint style and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I reckon this is my first success at using colour. Ever! I usually steer clear of colour but this was an opportunity to experiment a bit so I took it head on, and I am glad I did. I think I will be doing more of this sort of thing in the future.

I thought I'd post up the rest of the work I have done for Back 2 Front as well as the blocking for a piece I have recently started.

First up, blocking of "the Casket".
