Here are the front and back designs for business cards for Emily Haughton, a professional flautist and teacher. She wanted something cute and memorable to give out to prospective clients/ school pupils. I really enjoyed drawing the little bird, it's almost sequential, he hears the music on the front and sings along on the back! :D
Sometimes at work, usually when someone leaves ( =[ ) I'm asked to draw a leaving present for them. This is always awesome and super fun, which almost makes me wish more people would leave. (Almost!!! I don't want to get lonely...)
Here's a selection of stuff I've drawn for work funzies:
Present for the Publishing Director's leaving do (A brief history of Boardworks):
For the departure of a Marketeer who's off to travel sunny places:
I'm going to buy some body paint soon, so was inspired to try out some ideas for future body paints =]
This was done in Acrylic. Soon it will be with Snazaroo or Diamond FX or whatever body paint I can afford. Happy Late Halloween everybody!
Finally: IT'S DONE. It's finished, it's uploaded, it took ages, so please please please please PLEASE watch, share, like, comment, email to long-lost pals etc, my new short animated film. Probably won't make sense if you don't know Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. But please watch it anyway! There's Cowboys and Horses in it :D
Made in Flash CS5. Learnt a lot from this, and had fun too. Wonder what my next animated short project will be? Ah, I don't have to wonder, I know. TMI! Watch this space.
I animated a horse, hooray! It dawned on me a few hours in to this that I'd never animated a horse before. Well I don't think I have... My brain is fried right now, so maybe I have. There's some stuff going wrong in this but to be honest, I don't want to look at it any more, and I like what's going right in it. HOORAY FOR HORSES!
Animated in Flashhhhh, the more I get the program the more I like it. It still manages to kick me in the boobs every now and then though.
Hopefully more animation to follow to fill out my new reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel
I decided it's high time I learnt some Proper Illustrator Stuff. A mishmash of tutorials lead to this. I'm well pleased because it's so much better than any of my other attempts! Illustrator is a tricksy program, but I'm gonna beat it... Damnit if I can tame Cel Action I can tame you Illustrator!!! I love Pugs, especially ones in tuxedos. Now time for some lunch and some sunshine!
Here's a test illustration I did for Wyrd Games, (www.malifaux.com) and I suppose Kate's first foray into game concept art! Hopefully there will be more, but who knows. Fingers crossed! I think it would be awesome to get to draw game characters for a living. *adds to list of things to achieve*
HOWDY HEY! Been trying to learn this whole new-fangled 'Digital Painting' I've heard so much about. I'm talking no pencil lines in the finished product, just like... full on digital...stuff. Ahem.
I watched a few tutorials for this, the most useful one was mostly about how much you can edit brushes and what all the different doofers in the brush settings do. It took me until I was about 15 hours in to figure out how to make the brushes work for me in a way I could control and do half-decently. When I got over that hurdle, things began to speed up and get fun, which is like... whooo!! I've got my WIPs all up in here. I think they're interesting, because I like seeing progress mostly! Also I'm really glad I didn't go for the crazy Gaga flamethrower boobs I had drawn in the first sketch... baby steps...
Sup folks! I've been drawing a lot recently, hurray! Bits o' painting, designing and boarding. Boarding has been fun! This is the start of a very stupid idea I had for a short animated film. I don't plan on making it, but felt it was a good exercise to board something that originated from my weird head.
The whole idea basically revolves around the fact that my housemate was rather partial to Nurishment and how I thought Yazoo was a really gay sounding milk drink...
