Sefton’s Dream Update

04-21_smallTV

Well, it’s been quite some time since I last updated this blog but thought I better sneak in a quick post or else it’ll be a whole year since my last one.

Anyway, good news is Sefton’s Dream is finished! I’d finished it a few months ago actually but I’m afraid there’re a couple of things I need to sort out before I can put it on my website.

In the meantime, I’ve added a page for Sefton’s Dream where you can see some images of varying quality, taken during various stages of animating.

Colour

I’m back to working in colour now. Hmm, maybe you didn’t even know I was working in monochrome before, I didn’t mention it but you might have noticed from the previous images. Anyway, it’s great to get back to working with a colour palette. Not just that, but the way in which I’m colouring is really fun too.

Straight lines

Recently, I’ve been drawing with a ruler when animating. It’s something I’ve never really done before actually. It’s slowed down my work-rate somewhat but it’s been really fun to draw with slightly more precision.

Update on my floor: there’s still no room to move.
Update on Sefton’s Dream: I’m still working on it. It’s getting close though, honest.

Starfields animation


I had a bit of time to myself recently so I made a little animation. Nothing fancy just a brief introduction to the two characters from my comic Starfields. Ever since I made the comic I always imagined what they’d look like moving. Oh, and if you click on ‘HD’ you can watch it in High Definition on vimeo.
