the one known only as 'The BadgerHeart Girl'

video

Here is the final shot 10, without the music obviously,
the complete animation will be finished in about a month
now, and it's all coming together! I know I only seem
to post bits of this shot here, but it's a nice one that doesn't
give too much away and is small enough to upload.

... what? I hear you ask on seeing these. Well, to explain, sometimes
an artist needs to wait for the computer to render files for a minute, and
still has the cut frames that weren't good enough to use next to him.
So while I waited I modified the two mistake frames to the
two opposites of the BadgerHeart girl... evil and man.

Business Card Idea


First acceptable business card design, I might need to make the text
bigger and I'll play around with the image or draw a new
one specifically but I like this style. I know black will be more expensive
also but black's so classic!

ALONE

This is a short piece of writing I've created from the perspective of a school boy who felt completely alone and wasted in the world, he hates everything but desperately wants something he can bring himself to love.

Jen and Nick Project

I don't want to ruin too much until it's finished but I am currently working on a creative writing project with Jennifer Egan from Ireland over msn. I had noticed that she wrote quite poetically so I thought it would be brilliant to write a short story between us, and the way we've decided to write it I feel is very innovative. It's about the relationship of two intimate friends who can't speak, written in first person but switching between the two characters. Here is the first paragraph of the boy thinking

"The rain is so heavy that I can feel it pressing down. Last time I set foot over these pebbles was over two years ago. It looks so different to how I remember, but of course I’m bigger now, and it’s completely empty and grey. I’ve never really liked the seaside; it’s associated with too many empty pleasures. Getting wet isn’t so fun either, but I guess at least this way the beach isn’t lying, and it does look beautiful. An ethereal whiteness, decorated only with myself, the pebbles beneath and the front claws of the sea. The sea laps closer to me, outward from its misty hide, as if this rain and wind was here to herald the approach of this much mightier beast. To stand alone in face of such a thing while it roars and stumbles in, I guess that’s what makes my life mine, and no one else’s."

The Gems of Zoanthropes

This is the Novel I've been working on for years on and off in my spare time, it's progessed when I've the luxury of spending that much time on it and has been proof read by quite a few people. It's not finished yet but there's enough to get stuck into

My Showreel Mark II

video

I've refined it a tad and added a few bits from files that
were suddenly un-corrupted somehow

Animatic and Music

video
Really this should be uploaded to the BadgerHeart blogsite,
but I'm getting too many errors when I try and it's important that
one of the team members has access to this video. Also
concerning the BadgerHeart blogsite, the team is currently
making a new one to put everyone's work on instead
of having a site each, I'll update the link when it's ready :)

Bite in the Dark

Another Pen and chalk drawing drawn a while ago, just to fill up this blog
with my work. If you want to see a larger range of styles at this point
check out my portfolio, there's a link in the 'My Links' section
at the top right of this site.

My Showreel in progress



video
My showreel so far, I will continually be updating it as I produce better work.
Unfortunately, the files of one or two little pieces I was going to
add got corrupted at the last minute.

The Broken Mirror

A picture I drew about a year ago for fun, I'm not sure about the accuracy on the girl,
especially her hair but I like the colours and feel of this drawing.

BadgerHeart

The BadgerHeart animation project is well underway between Henry Kennet, and Rob Yale and Myself, visit my third of the production blog to see how it's coming along! It's all about just producing a 90second animation to enter into the DepicT competition, but mainly for professional team animation production experience.
