Winter 2007

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

After sending a dvd of my work to many studios, I finally was able to get a job. I am currently working as a layout artist on the feature film 'Narnia - Prince Caspian'. So far the film looks really good.

Medical Video

Hi all,

I have been working on a small medical animation in the past week. The idea is that I develop an animation for the company so that the can use it for demonstration purposes when selling their products.

New Showreel

Since my last post have complied a new showreel. It is longer than my previous and shows a wider range of work. It has taken a good few months to put together but i am happy with the end result.
here is a link to the reel:

I enjoyed making the animations as well as composing the backing track to acompany the reel.

Table Animation

This is the final animation for the scene.

The soldier is sat at the table in the fort - He is angry and confused.
Then suddenly, the clock that previously did not work starts. The soldier looks up at the clock.

New Website Logo

This is a idea for a new logo for my website.
Have a look at the quicktime for the fully rendered animation.

Close Up of Face

One of the scenes that i have been asked to animate was a 3 second clip of when the soldier looks through a crack in the fort to see a seagull flying away. I animated one clip and rendered it.I was then advised that it had too much movement that was not needed. So, after a few attempts and changing the animation dramatically i ended up with a shoot that the group were happy with.

Didn't finish working on the rig until half two this morning. I think the model and the rig are finished. Here is a quick animation test of how it moves.

Left Hand Complete

I have finished animating the SDK and influence objects on the left hand.

High res model - Time consuming

I have been working on this high res model for ages now. I am getting closer to finishing the rigging but it is so time consuming. This is a screen shot of the high res hand. It is controlled by SDK. The hand is made up of a high res mesh (39952 faces), which is being controlled by a low res wrap deformer (990 faces). This was done so that the hand could be more detailed and not take for ever to rig.

The links below are some of my previous tests from this project.
