School is over!

My final assignment:

A young warrior named Aithne had heard the prophecy that Dubheasa could only be defeated at the hand of Balor, the king of the giants. The witch thought that she was perfectly safe, as the giants disliked the light of day as much as she did. Aithne went to the mountains where Balor and his kin lived, and tricked the prideful giant into lifting a mountain above his head. With a sharp swing of her axe, the girl chopped Balor's left hand off just below the wrist. The foolish giant was unable to safely set down the mountain with one hand, and as he called for help, Aithne took his hand and ran. She next bound the fingers into a fist with a short length of rope. Now prepared to do battle with the witch, she traveled to the black cliffs where Dubheasa had taken Alauniu...

Demo Reel Stuff!

So, here's my latest demo reel. The one on Vimeo has some sound issues, I think it must be some stupid compression problem, but I have the animation with lip syncing on YouTube as well, and it's fine there!

Caricature assignment!


 I did the same assignment for Sarah Michelle Gellar, but it did not turn out good at all. Have to redo it.

Perspective assignments!

The mine shaft building is much better. The jackhammer skid steer needs some work to be correct.

Tapeworm Thorgrim

 The two latest assignments, above is the most recent one, which is to design something for the theme "Viking Parasites." Below is the texture swatch assignment. Reading is as if it were a book we have -- Rotten wood, baked earth, soft fur, small bubbles, skin cells, rusty hinge, gnarly window frame, carpet, and scrub brush.

Rodent Herdsman of the Burning Desert

I hate to have the first post of the new year be something I am so un-pleased with, but what can I do? This was for Drawing for Animation, the topic was "Rodent Herdsman of the Burning Desert." He's got an extra arm because the desert is burning not because it is hot, but because it is RADIOACTIVE!
