New environment sketches ...

It's been a super busy week and didn't have much time for sketching!! Booo to me!!

These took about 45 minutes to complete, I was working on them simultaneously. I prefer working on 2-3 sketches at once helps to keep things fresh.

and to end this post with a little humor and intellect I came across two channels on youtube that I found to be fun;

Show Reel Updated!

Reel 2.0!

A few weeks ago I uploaded a new Show reel for the world to see, which was accepted with some really positive feedback and new opportunities. Since then after reviewing the reel a number of times I've decided to do a little editing. I've added new work, included more breakdowns and reordered the shots. Over all the reel has doubled in length, but I really think it was worth it! Take a look and let me know what you think;

I've also brushed out some of the old work on my website and added more recent work, with break downs;

While compiling new work to add to my reel I found an old painting I did a few years ago for an event in Sydney. The brief was to turn the city into a landscape overgrown with vegetation ...

New Find!

Great little puzzle game - Figuring out how to play it was a puzzle in itself, but fun when you do! (for some odd reason the link wont work, so just copy and paste it!)

And finally, my blog should look a little more pretty now :)

Daily sketches

I spent a few hours painting this evening and came up with a few random characters and landscapes ...

On a side note, i'm currently in process of rebuilding this blog, adding separate pages and making it look less; Blogger!

Spider Mouse

This was a concept idea I had for an online comic, never quite went beyond these few concepts, but I liked the style and mood. The basic story was about this drunk, wasted; half mouse, half spider .. cop that once washed up on the shoreline without any memory of where he came from. And he has a liking for Blues! Anyway;

Updated 2011 reel

I finally managed to get an updated reel onto Vimeo, yay!

I need to go through and compile a more visual break down, but for now it's better than what I had yesterday :)

I've also uploaded a separate break down of one of the shots;

More working coming online soon!

A ghostly Wonderland

What is this strange ghostly structure looming through the mist in the background? Surely a nuclear power station? a sci-fi matte paintings? A missile launching platform? Well no, this is in fact the famous Disney castle that unfortunately didn't live happily ever after. All jokes aside, this was intended to be the Chinese Wonderland, the home of Disney Characters such as Cinderella, Snow White and a cute little mouse with red pants! Unfortunately when the Chinese economy went bad it seems construction was halted. That said, I would still pay to go and see this! the derelict version looks far more interesting than the one in Paris or Florida!

Who am I kidding!

So in previous posts I said I was committing myself to compiling my work and doing NO more artwork until I was done! Well who was I kidding. Three sketches I did in the last two days;

In other news! I'm really pushing myself to get my 3d environment work online. It's really frustrating that I have some really cool work that I want to share with the world, but for lack of time I haven't been able to compile everything into a presentable way. Stay tuned!
