skinny jeans

I've been intending to design a skinny jeans character for ages. I finally got round to it yesterday when a doodle turned into something I liked. I modelled the character in Maya and used surface shaders to get that 2d look, a look inspired by the work of David O'Reilly (more on that later).

Animated Yorkshire

Greetings to all who went to the Animated Yorkshire workshop!

Here is the showreel that I brought along. Was a shame that technology let us down... cos that never happens!

I'll be visiting all your sites when I'm back in the comfort of Wales, looking forward to it!

Brian poses

Brian has been asked to represent a podcast called 'Chasing Brussels,' a blog about EU politics. I think Brian will fit right in! The brief was to make him look like he was chasing something (Brussels I imagine) and then being puffed out from all the chasing. Well he's tired out but very pleased to make his mascot debut!

It's not all about Brian

I was walking home today and got a craving to draw a goblin. Maybe I'm missing Runescape... or maybe I'm inspired by the locals walking down City Road :)

Brian drive thru.

Here is Brian finally united with his car. The next step is to texture the car with a bit of rust and dirt. Meanwhile, I'm working on a lady librarian character for Brian to meet. The story of Brian is growing and I need to catch up with my storyboards!
