11 Second Club: September


Well I’m really testing my limits with trying to attempt fish-eye lens perspective view into my animation when I’m still somewhat struggling with three-point perspective.

"Keep it simple" is a good guideline to have when animating otherwise I would struggle by attempting unnecessary animations. I definitely did struggle but to catch up to people with tons more experience than me: I concluded that I had to really push myself beyond the norm.

Dialogue: “Maybe tomorrow really isn’t coming. And maybe... just maybe... I’ve earned the right to live a little before I die. Haven’t I?”

Completed and submitted with over 72 hours to spare but I've got many other competitions to attend to which I need to make time for.

I ranked 62 out of 195 and was ranked 4.84. The top rank was 8.57 out of 11. So it looks I did pretty badly but I will continue to improve.

Chorus Fibre Competition

Chorus Fibre Brief:
"For your first entry, create a graphic image evoking what New Zealand means to you."


This is probably really different to what they were looking for but I'm quite happy with some of the designs.

Cyndi Lauper


I guess this can fit into this week's Illustration Friday topic "Burst".

Anyway, I got an email that had a link to this page which was full of amazing art. Inspired, I tried to do something similar by combining the two styles.

Silhouette Exercises

I intend on revamping one of my characters (Arie Fox) from the "My Kind of Rain" sketch collection, bottom row; second to the right to be precise.

Starting with some silhouette exercises I picked up off my friend Paula.

Well I started playing around by making a brush of my own using vectors, trying to make a fancy shape intended to be used with direction. This is what I came up with in a few minutes.

Animation Collaboration


The assignment these past two and a bit weeks was to do an animation collaboration (in my case) with Sang Kyu Moon using the audio from The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993).

I'm fortunate enough to be able to work with someone creative and can give/receive feedback.
