Phoenix Snow

The life-drawing with Gemma/Phoenix Snow on Thursday went pretty well, got a couple of drawings done for my second personal project for uni. Have just been colouring them in on Photoshop, though I can't decide whether I prefer this first one with more shade and tone or just flat colours, what are your thoughts?


That one was drawn from a  photo not the life drawing session ^

RSPCA Animation Competition - Uni

Here's an update on how it's going :) Nearly there now, just a few little glitches to sort and to add colour to the bird in the last few frames, may need to add a few more drawings as well actually for where it jumps out of the birdhouse...let me know what you think!

RSPCA Animation Competition - Uni

Some frames from my RSPCA animation (which isn't an animation yet, so, some sparrow drawings...)

Testing out scanning the images with different coloured backgrounds

A group shot of 12 of the frames

Update - 

Okay, just tried to test out the first bunch of frames on Flash to see if it actually worked at all, here is the result :)

The final animation is going to be cleaner so the numbers of the frames will obviously not be there, but it's not looking too bad for my first attempt at hand-drawn animation :)

Just some updates....

First project at university went down well, it was about British 'firsts', this was my piece, it seemed to go down well :)

Currently working on the first part of my personal project, for which I am entering an RSPCA/Simon's Cat competition that I came across over the summer but thought it was too late to enter as the closing date on the site said earlier September, then found out when back at uni that it had a different date on another part of the site (next year) and that they'd made a mistake on the page I'd seen, bah! But anyway, doing it now :) Been mostly drawing birdhouses and lots of sparrows...

Outside of uni I've been trying to make some connections, meeting with a woman who is part of the council from where I live next week who organises events and such in the local park about the possibility on working on some illustrations for promotional materials. 
Also been chatting to a local newbie burlesque performer who is more than happy to help with my next project for uni which is based around burlesque so we're going to meet up some time that we're both free and she'll pose for me to do some life-drawing.

Have been keeping busy :) Sorry for not updating the blog much, I forget about it sometimes 'cause I have the Facebook page now (
