Fruity + Cartoons = FRUITOONS!


I like all the different shapes and sizes fruits and vegetables come in. These are some of the basic fruits I tested out putting eyeballs on.

TOP 10 of 2014.


I thought to end the year on a high, I would make a collage of my top 10 films I've watched in 2014.
There are still plenty of films I haven't watched from 2014 so, I have only put in on what I have watched. You cant always trust the trust RT and IMDB team. :P

Please don't be shy to tell me if I'm crazy or slightly correct with my taste in films. :)

FISH FINGERS ONLY! NO THUMBS



I had a bit of fun doodling fish fingers and then I thought to myself what happens to the poor fish thumbs? :)

I've also opened up a Society 6 Store. Check it out you Khool Kids.

WEEK 8 - TURNAROUND


Character turnaround was the final assignment in this amazing little course. We had to choose a character from our past assignments and draw a front and side view of that character as accurate as possible. I choose the pirate because I thought he looked like an interesting character to develop further.

WEEK 7 - ANIMALS

Characterising an animal from reference was this weeks assignment. We had any choice of animal to choose from, so i choose a RHINO.

Final rhino design with references used.

The process I used from rough to final design. The initial sketch, vectorised shapes made in Illustrator and the final textured version painted in Photoshop.


A background added with the 2 characters. Painting backgrounds isn't my strongest asset but, I'm going Rambo (fearless) at the moment in all aspects of design. 

This was also requested by a friend of mine (Luis). He wanted to see how I would tackle combining characters with backgrounds. I hope I did well. 

Thanks for visiting.

WEEK 5 - STORY through a single image - Part 2

A few weeks ago I did an assignment for CGMA where I had tell a story about something happening on a bench. Although I handed in a final piece, I wasn't happy with the outcome. I did say I would rework it by October. I couldn't until then, so I did it this week. I took the feedback from NW and applied it onto the this final. Im really grateful to Nate for the pointers and happy with this turnout.

TMNT - TINY MUTANT NINJA TURTLES



COWABUNGAAAAA!!!

WEEK 6 - Versa-STYLE





The ability to have versatility in style was this weeks task. 

The first dragon is a very simplified, curvy, vibrant  Jay Ward, UPA style.

The second dragon is a Ronald Searle style. A very inky, sharp style with a lot more detail than you would find in a Jay Ward design.

I hope the designs have justified the two artists that inspired me.

Enjoy.

WEEK 5 - STORY through a single image - Part 1


Its been a bad hand in this week. I wasn't over pleased with the turn out. My aim was to have a coloured and textured version of this image & also have a better composition in general. This is definitely on the 'LIST OF THINGS TO FINISH' by October.

More Gumballlll.

I applied for a character designer position on The Amazing World of Gumball (TAWOG) for their new season a while ago. I didn't hear back from CN (which usually means "You didn't get the role". ) but, I still enjoyed completing the assignments they sent me. It was a BIG LEARNING CURVE for me in illustrator. Thanks CN, Love the show.
