Dumb Beardy



Well, Christmas is over for another year and I've consumed soooo much sugar that it's surprising I haven't OD'd yet.
Anyway back to work, and here is a bunch of visual development stuff for one of the characters from my current uni project. Still need to tweak things here and there and also make them look....well, less messy, but these were mainly quick studies I did today to get the hang of drawing him. Stay tooned for the next character, hope y'all dig!!

Frozen



Nothing can top Wreck-It Ralph in my eyes, but Frozen was a pretty enjoyable flick.

Happy Halloween!





It's that time of year again where I close the curtains, turn off the lights and keep all the candy to myself. Here, have some ZOMBIES!

Shredhead



I was excited to learn the first episode of the new TMNT season was out on Xbox Live, then I soon found it was for the U.S. only, d’oh! So, instead, I finished up my Shredder doodle I did a few days ago.

Cowabunga!


....or Booyakasha, whatever your preference!
Again, this was done as part of the weekly drawing challenge, I've been itching to get a ninja turtle for weeks and I finally got Mikey! Had an absolute blast drawing/colouring this and hopefully it shows. Bring on season two!

EDIT: My friend Ally just posted up her awesome drawing also from TMNT, Rocksteady! Check it out here.

Ognib





In case you couldn't tell, I really enjoy drawing old people, they are so full of character!

Scrapped!




 So much for spending Easter break playing Bioshock, far too much work to do!

Currently in the middle of a new project where I've decided to pitch a short animated film, so here is a early character design I did for a 'film noir' inspired story I wrote last year. Sadly, what I had planned was way too ambitious given our time frame, so this guy has gone to the bottom of the scrap folder, for now...

To mix this blog up a bit, I included the original sketches to give an insight into how I work and just to show how messy my drawings can be!

Costa, Trains and Bingo





Just a few more drawings done on my travels! I have far too many sketchbooks to scan in...

Like A Leaf In The Wind



It's been a while! (insert lame excuse for lack of updates here). Well, now that's out of the way, heres a character lineup from a recent project we did where we had to pick a TV Show and adapt it into a title sequence. For mine, I ended up choosing Nickelodeon's 'The Legend of Korra', as I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms from the lack of season two! Although the end result left much to be desired, the character redesigns were such fun to draw.

Top Shelf!


Wreck-It Ralph is finally out in cinemas all across the UK! If you haven't seen it, then why are you still reading this? Go watch it! :)

Drawing Challenge


Let's add a bit of colour to this blog! These were from last weeks drawing challenge where we had to pick an outfit first and design a character based around that. It's an easier and interesting way to approach character design and a method I will probably use in the future. May post some extra designs at a later date as I ended up drawing a lot more than the brief asked...

TGIF




Only started blogging this week and already I'm slacking! Working on a few character designs at the moment, but in the meantime, here is a few old sketches from Costa.

Heroes In A Half Shell



Our first second year project in Uni was to visualise and storyboard part of an existing TMNT script. Love storyboards and had a lot of fun with this, which hopefully shows in the drawings.

First!



Sketch from Costa last week. This woman didn't seem too pleased that I was drawing her!
