Animation Sketches 08/18

Hey guys, So over the last couple of weeks I have been playing around with a couple of animation ideas and tests. Some i have brought to completion, some are just rough block-throughs that just got cast aside and forgotten about. Anyway, I thought I would upload a short compilation of these animations. I hopeContinue reading “Animation Sketches 08/18”

Human Insult – Animation

After a long day of work, and an hour and a half commute home, the last thing you want to do with your evening is do more work. So I did this during my lunch breaks. Wow. It’s been a while since I have posted a new animation on here… In fact the last animationContinue reading “Human Insult – Animation”

Character Design – Spies!

Hey guys! So recently I have really enjoyed coming up with ideas for children’s animated TV series. Developing ideas, characters and narrative is something I can really sink my teeth into. Not only do I love the literary work, but as an animator and illustrator, I love designing the characters as well! Below are twoContinue reading “Character Design – Spies!”

Many Apologies… and a couple of pictures

Apologies So first I have to apologise. It has been far too long since I have worked on my webcomic Mr Think. I posted page 16 a couple of weeks ago, and I am halfway through page 17, but it has been months since I have regularly posted. I am looking forward to finishing theContinue reading “Many Apologies… and a couple of pictures”


Calamity Joe, the smart git, chose to do all of his Cinematic work directly in UE4. I mean, ok, he is a young intern fellow, full of optimism and willingness to learn. So the opposite of myself. I have over 8 years experience in the animation industry. I am used to animating every detail inContinue reading “PRODUCTION DIARY OF [CENSORED DUE TO NDA] – WEEK 4 – Smacking Ones Head Against UE4.”


I have always been quite an active fella. Sure, my skills at a sport or a martial art were never up to scratch (I downright refused to play football during PE at school) but my preference was for the arts; drama and dance, something with a little more storytelling (though I struggle with contemporary danceContinue reading “PRODUCTION DIARY OF [CENSORED DUE TO NDA] – WEEK 2.2 – Motion Capture Fun!”

Production Diary of [CENSORED DUE TO NDA] – Week 1 – Storyboard and Animatic

This year (well… week, really – 4 days if you want to be specific – Monday was a Bank Holiday) I have been mostly spitting out sweet storyboards, filthy and quick, for a short cinematic project that will probably only last a month at most. I wanted to keep a production diary of the process,Continue reading “Production Diary of [CENSORED DUE TO NDA] – Week 1 – Storyboard and Animatic”


Hey guys, So back in May I posted the OZ AND KATE WEDDING ANIMATION – MODELLING! blog, looking at the design principles used when creating the characters and artwork for my wedding. Today I have the follow-up post, showing off the Rig I had created for the characters, but the best way to do this was byContinue reading “OZ AND KATE WEDDING ANIMATION – RIGGING!”

Some More Animations

Hey guys, thought it was high time I’d add a few more animations to the blog. These focus on body mechanics and video reference. Some are better than others, but I think they work well as tests. Marionette Game Animation Tests   Below is a number of tests leading to the pieces above Rig: UltimateContinue reading “Some More Animations”
