A bit of study

A little exercise from class recently. I don't think I have ever done a head turn before. What a noob!
It is a character that I designed recently for a board sequence.

New Work!...Actual work.

Hi! Yes, it has been a very long time!

I've been very busy recently doing some study and working a bit. Here are some advertisments that I boarded recently with the great people at Mighty Nice:

Farm Heroes:

Candy Crush:


I also had the opportunity to work on the new Spongebob movie. I spent 4 weeks helping the sculpting team at Iloura in Melbourne. It was an amazing experience with one of the most skilled teams I have ever worked with!
Check out the trailer:
It will be out next year!

Universities Australia

Earlier in the year I worked on this little Ad for Universities Australia with the great guys at Mighty Nice. I have done a few Storyboards for these guys in the past but this time I was able to design some of the characters and shots too! When they gave me the brief I knew this was going to be fun!

Here are some of my character designs: 
one of my first cave men:

My creature was not weird enough so I did some variations :) :

Here are some Style frames that I did also:

Some ideas for the last shot:

Big thank you to Darren Price for directing me and giving me the opportunity to have so much fun with this. And to Alex Grigg and his team for the great animation!

Jim Coloured!

This is the last demo that I did in my drawing class. I spent quite a few hours finishing him up :P.
Great to see him with a bit of colour! 
The rendering style is inspired by the great work of Ryan Lang:
Check out his gargoyles! So good!

Here is a little step by step on how I did it:
