Tasmanian Freelance Animator/Game Artist

Okay, so normally I wouldn’t upload something this nerdy/lame, but my favourite minecraft server is getting reset, so I thought it warranted some sort of memorial for all the hundreds of hours I’ve sunk into it.

Kinda hard to see the character animation with that big frame size. Here’s a gif!

Just an animated doodle to keep my hand in.

Little job for a friend who has a friend who has just had twin boys!

THINKING ABOUT DRAWING IN 3D

I want to make short videos covering topics like this, with a focus on digital techniques and simple game art production for programmers who have no artistic background.
My motivation to work on these things is directly proportional to any favourable audience response!

Twitter doodles- Stuff I’m messing around with!

More 60s studies.
I’ve been using pixelovely, might move to quickposes soon for some variety- know any other good drawing practice sites? (That aren’t posemaniacs?)

Been making time to do 20min of 1min studies on pixelovely for 2 days. Can already feel myself loosening up. I want to keep on these for a few weeks at least!
(Sorry about the sketchy update, I just don’t have any finished non-work artwork to post!)

Things from the stream!

Hey guys, remember GovHack? This was my team’s project, ‘What is Gov (Baby don’t hurt me)’
We made a game about running a government! (Turns out it’s mostly screaming at everyone else to do things for you!)
I invite you to check out the video- HERE!
Then go to it’s govHack page- HERE and rate it as highly as you like!
I spent a whole weekend building attractive painted graphics and a silly face generator that the hilarious programmers in our group instantly perverted.
