Thursday, 26 February 2009


Recently, working alot more with the Warhouse project, its going nicely with character designs on going and later on when things are in plave we'll be working on the storyboards of the film. cant wait to start them.
The director Luke is linked on top right of my page, thats his blog covering so far his unfluences and it will be showing more of his side of the production and alot more of the technical workings, some great facts up already onn his cinematic influencesand directions.
Also, i'm still working with Mehul Desai for the Dv shorts Application which is next week. still working on 3 scenes to be submitted with his new draft of the script. heres one of those scenes.
And for personal work its going swell. recently worked out a ne project for painting which i'm looking forward to starting asap but more on that when it actually gets physicaly started, Next week i'm meeting with an amazing artist Justin Mortimer for a sort of one on one tutorial in the studio. hes a really inspirational artist and a true figuartive painter. Even bagging himself a national portrait award a few years back and a portrait of the queen. he has a wicked style, i think you have to see it rather than be told. I'm told he shares a studio with one of my greatest heroes of painting, Phil Hale so its going to be plenty of questions and the honour is going to be mine for sure! i'll give abit of a highlight on that once ive met him.
Heres a link for Justin Mortimer's Website: Mr Mortimer Definatly worth a Look.

The Soldier

Abit of a sneaky peak at some of the work ive been up to recently. this a character profile picture of the protagonist of the new script i'm working on with Luke Massey. its called 'Warhouse' i really like this script it has a wicked storyline to it. ive been working on alor of charector design stuff, just for now as other thinhs are in process and hopefully this stuff might help other people along with some visuals.
some really fun stuff, but i wont go puttig it all up just yet. so far this and the other work has all been in pencils, i seem to have taken my hand back to that rather than straight into photoshop. i seem to have rememberd its the best way to get familiar with any sort of characteristics that need to be carried through with the drawings...the moral is... draw people! draw!

Up In Smoke!

heres the second of the daily paintings. really bad i think but it was fun to do. if you cant guess its abit of a nuke mushroom........but like i said it was fun to do and tried to use some different colours.
the journey continues.
Also an Update. recently gained a couple of new jobs. firstly,
still working with Mehul on on the evacuation script. hes still sending in the application work to the new DV Shorts application. so afr the script has taken on so many changes but i think from reading the latest script last night i think this should have a rally good shot at being produced further! fingers crossed but that wont be sent off for another few weeks yet.
Bernard of Iron Box films has asked me to help him with an animation for a music video. not too heabily animated but sections of still scenes would be animated and from what we talked about its going to have a nice dirty seedy Film noir feel about it!
And finaly the most recent of jobs i got was with a new director Named Luke Massey. hes done a few of his own films before. and from what ive seen dwell in the dark and dirty of cinematic! haha it should be a good experience working with him. i was sent his synopsis for the film he wants artwork for and i was really blown away by it! pritty excited to say the least!
i'm going to set up a link to his own blog in the top right links. worth a check!
