Just a Doodle

Just a little doodle while listening to the radio, trying to learn new things in photoshop, trying to add texture and a more natural feel to my illustrations. First time doing this so not too spectacular a piece and done in a relatively short space of time to try and stay loose and make as many 'mistakes' as I can to get that traditional 'feel.'

P-P-P-Polkadots I mean err... Poison Ivy!

Man I really need to stop drawing polkadots now, really poor excuse of an uncreative background... But anyways here is a little piece I've been working and practicing on! Tried printing this today but the printer just destroyed it... Need to come up with a plan to tackle this, time to start printing Pantone colour references to get perfect result when printed!

Man what an awesome movie!

I have so much respect for these stop motion animators and especially with the way they animated this movie, stylistically and visually the film was breathtaking.

I love how creative the movie was, none of the characters were symmetrical and all had their own little nuances and 'crookedness' which made for a more intricate and believable world. The movie managed to stay fresh throughout and the way they turned the zombie genre around was exciting and new, especially in such a zombie saturated culture!

Here's a nice expression sheet for "Norman" handy as inspiration for my current character project.

Heidi Smith worked as the character designer for this movie and I love how she doesn't get tied down by formalities and really gets the essence of the character down on paper, she draws the way the character would feel and I think it's just perfect for this movie and they did an awesome job of translating that to 3D.

I haven't got any images of the end credits from this movie but I stayed behind to watch them and I have to say, even the end credits were a joy to see! The end credits inspired my own work more than the actual movie! At least in terms of visual aesthetics, as the end credits were in a 2D style and had a wonderful sense of design and colour which I am striving for in my own 2D projects.

Thanks for tuning in,

Fooling around today in college revisiting an old sketch.

Still trying to get rid of line work and work on my painting skills, happening very slowly...
