My  2nd year animated short. Done with the help of Dan Harvey and Robin Gerndt.

 These two short animations i've worked on with Julia Young, Bethan Davies, Yaw Asamoah & Ryan Walsh - they were used as stings for the Glammies Showcase 2013.

 This was my first character animation project, made traditionally on paper.


This was my second character animation project, however, done in Adobe Flash. The idea was to get a drawing from a middle school student and animate it for her.


 The rest of the works in this post are non animated. The Pure and The Tainted is a storyboard inspired by the song with the same title by Blue Stahli.

March trinket is a storyboard inspired by a traditional eastern european legend.

Anca is a character inspired by one of my friends. I took the liberty of creating a cartoon version of her and these are the design process.

Character Design & Animation

This was the last module during my first year of animation. You will see the design and pre-production process of my character, and his animation as well. You may have seen it before in the previous post, but i will post it again here.

First Year of Actual Animation

One of my procrastinating habits is to 'defile' walls, doors or furniture with post its with art concepts on them. 

I had enough work to put in my portfolio when i applied for University of Glamorgan (University of South Wales), but i don't know what pushed me to the idiotic decision of putting these 'defiled' walls in there. 

You can see the other walls in my previous posts, and as i compare them, it seems i have gotten less productive with a bad habit once i came to Cardiff - less productive with a bad habit...if it makes any sense.

 

Here is a playlist of all my animations done in my first year of university. You can see all of them on my Youtube channel.  The voices in the final character animation were done with the help of Dan Harvey (Devyn), Yaw Asamoah, Robyn Kelly and me (the audience).
 

At the end of the year we had a chance to finally do some colored work. The 2 stings below, i made in a collaborative group with Julia YoungBethan Davies, Yaw Asamoah & Ryan for the Glammies show. The theme was Western, but in the monotony of cowboys, we felt like putting native Americans in the spotlight.
You can find these videos on Julia's Blog and her Vimeo Channel.

It will be a while until i post another animatic or animation, so until then you might see different life drawings, sketches & other scraps.

In this post you shall see one of my first character design assignment.
Next post will include all my animations done last year. They can be seen on Youtube channel.
