Here is my latest animation showreel, which I put together and showed around CTN this year.

I’m aiming to add more shots to it soon to replace some of the older shots still on there, as I’m aware there’s some contrast between my newest work and my older ones.

 

 

 

Here is a piece of artwork depicting a character from The Awakening of James Island.

I’m very happy with the design, which was created by a talented reader, who’s work can be found here: https://www.wattpad.com/135040172-illustration-chronicles-art-book-request-evan-the

Many thanks to Adrian Mulryan for his awesome work. Check out more of this work here: https://ammulryan.artstation.com/

 

* This has since been taken down, as I found a publisher to release the book through more traditional means. I’ll leave this post here to show the old cover design, and how awesome the new design is! *

Island Legends: The Awakening of James Island

My fantasy adventure novel has recently become available on Amazon.

It’s available on Kindle and paperback here:http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B…=1&*entries*=0

 

The Awakening of James Island tells the story of James Island, who was born two years earlier as a fully grown man with little knowledge beyond his own name. Despite struggling to build a life for himself in the desert city of Tyken Town, James finds his world turned upside down when he is confronted by Evan Goodheart, a strange young alien who claims to be on a mission sent by the gods to find James and save his own people. Despite trepidation, James finds an affinity with the lost and bewildered Evan and takes it upon himself to help him find his way; all while attempting to maintain some order in the life he’s made and his construction work responsibilities. Throughout the course of the day James will discover just how entwined his fate is with Evan’s as the truth of his unknown past is revealed to him, setting him on a perilous journey that will lead him across the galaxy.

Currently working on a singing scene, using the song Stay With Me (Baby) by Lorraine Ellison.
I’m going for an emotional and dramatic performance, with the lady singing for her lost lover in the audience, making it a personal performance for her.

Refining the timing and movement at the moment before heading into polish.

Slightly updated with a few new shots and a leaner run-time.

 

Short update to my reel to keep it up-to-date.

Currently working on a few new shots for the next update.

This was the last animation I did at Animation Mentor, finally getting round to uploading it.

I wanted to do a run cycle as my showreel was missing one, and thought of a tired jogger catching his breath to give the shot more personality – My Mentor (Sean Sexton) recommended I move the run forward in space, and then invert the forward translation of the main character control to turn it into an in-place cycle after.

 

Here is my Class 5 Progress Reel – showing all my animated shots for the first 5 classes of Animation Mentor. I’ve really enjoyed getting into character acting. Still have a lot more to learn. Only 1 more class to go!!
