Promo 2

Hey all,

I decided that I couldn't wait to test out this style with a more dynamic picture.
Well here it is!

Check it out, all feedback welcome.

Promo pic

Here is my first promotion picture for the series, no names yet... I'm still working on something that'll fit.

The promo pic was made out of a new design of the protagonist and some variants of it.
Basically I wanted to develop the style a little further because I wasn't satisfied with the current style and found it too 'light'. i think that this style will help portray the heavy atmosphere I am aiming for.

Oh yeah, the teaser is going well, look out for it...

You can see the original at the bottom.

Background for first scene of Teaser

I guess everyone is wondering what I've been doing recently. Well, I can proudly say that I've been busy working on the teaser and it's going really well.

Well I don't really want to post too about the teaser because it'll just spoil it but now and then I'll drop something so you can see how I am progressing.

So here is the backdrop for the first scene.... it took me about 6+ hours to do...

Falling leaves

Hey all,

After walking, thinking and looking around a bit, I decided to start working on a scene. So what does that mean? More animation work... :(

Well today I was working on some leaves falling down because in this pilot scene I want try and see how well I can bring out the environmental details with animation.

Anyway, check it out and tell me what you think, though remember this is still in development.

Rain Animation

Okay here is another video experimentation. I wanted to try and create a rain effect as I know I'll be creating a scene(s) that will contain rain.
Anyway, check it out, soz about the crap quality... it was quicker to upload..

Animation 1

Okay, so the past few days I've been thinking what to do next and it so happened that yesterday night I went to try out a meditation session.
Anyway, I wanted to create a short animation to get some idea how to animate my eventual comic, so I thought... let's try breathing... yeah that's right... just the protagonist breathing, uh huh.
Well check it out here:

It didn't go completely plan as the lighting was inconsistent in each scenes, but it still produced a cool effect.

Playing With Colours

So here's a full view of the character in his cop outfit (as you can see on the right). It's not exactly the same as the crappy sketch I made earlier but it's more or less the sameish~

Anyway, I decided to experiment with colours again and see what kind of styles I can come up with.

The first picture is in the complete original style, then the next image I changed the image a bit so you can his nose, increased the saturation and changed the whole colour. In the third image I darkened the lines to give the character a stronger and more determined look and changed the colour to a light, ice cool blue. The final image is an inversion inspired by Andy Warhol's Michael Jackson piece.

Thug 1#

Yeah, yeah, what's up...##??#

So Today I thought, how about trying to design a villian, or just something different for once, yesterday I tried out a new character but it didn't work out so I didn't post it up.

But , anyway, here's a mock design of a thug that i'll be using my first short which I'm working on atm............. Wiki wiki wah

Busy busy busy @@@@

Creating a sequence

Okay, yesterday I created a mock scene so I decided to proceed to the next step which was to design 2 images of the characters that could be used in sequence.

But now that I have 2 designs I essentially have 2 characters. So what I can do is put them in the same scene and this give me the opportunity to imagine what it would be like if I did have more than one character interacting with each other.

Mock up concept

So I decided to play around with the previous image I posted up and try and create something with a bit of feeling.

I used to red around the character to convey a murderous/dark intent within him.

Practice Scene

Wala~ Here is my first mock up of a scene.
I haven't played around with the colours yet nor done up the background properly but you can see how things are beginning to shape up. O_______O

Here's a slightly different version of the character design by itself.
