Friday 28th September 2012 - A Moleskine giveaway!



As well as a ton of cool stuff up for grabs, I can spread the notoriety of this particular illustrator!

A fellow BCU illustration cohort, she specializes in editorial/political/caricature and cartooning illustrations, the subject matter being often a lot more light hearted than anything which leaks out of my pencil...

Go enter the competition, and follow her...

Wednesday 12th September 2012 - Arena Legends: Inks


The inks for the 8 scenes of the trailer for Arena: Legends. The slides in the right hand column are showing alternate/extra layers, which will appear/transition.

The plan is to have moving sections in the trailer, and due to that, all of everything needed to be drawn, even where, in places, they intersected foreground/background elements. This will make painting it a bit of a pain, but should make the whole thing look pretty fancy when it's animated up.

These are digi-inks because of that - the ease of multiple layers really saved my arse in this instance.

I've managed to land a gig as Art Director for a small indie iPhone game. Chuffed to say the least.

Here are some prelim. sketches for a trailer which is to be made.

The next stage is to transfer these to Bristol board, keeping all the intended layers separate for ease of painting, and then actually painting them!
