Peacock Painting Design

Sketch for new peacock painting, it’s tricky to try and think about mood and themes for such a simple subject…

Think I’m going to try and concentrate on the patterns, textures and shapes rather than any grand concept, although I would like it to have a calm, flowing and harmonious feel to it. Not totally sure on the background and colours yet, that will be tomorrow’s experimenting job!



Withnail and I

This is a piece for a very quick project that will hopefully be featured in an 80s cult movies zine! Seemed like a classic one to go for would be a Withnail and I montage style scene.. Tried to make the piece seem a bit grubby and scruffy with grey scuffed pencil and yellow paint highlights but wish I had more time to make more of the comedy and expressive aspects.. Still here it is:



Three Finished Book Covers

So finally all finished for assessment! Here are my finished covers, pretty pleased with them overall:



Rebecca #2

Almost finished book covers for Rebecca… still going for the lonely, eerie isolation atmosphere, and I wanted to have an obvious mix of traditional and contemporary. The first one just needs a bit of tweaking and then it’s finished!



Rebecca #1

Started on book number 2, the classic Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. For this one, I would like to keep the same sort of feeling of loneliness and isolation, using traditional English countryside imagery but using a modern style. These covers below are a bit of a failed attempt at conveying what I want to do as they look a bit twee, but they are ok in terms of composition and imagery. The black ink and white paint image at the bottom has the kind of look I would like to use for the covers.



Music Video Project #9

Animation is pretty much finished.. here is the basic finished product. Not sure on the speeds of parts and I’m aware that some sections came out a lot better than others, so constructive¬†criticism¬†is welcome! I hope the basic story of it is clear. Stay tuned for the completed music video!



Music Video Project #8: A Long Night of Animation

Have been working quite hard on the finished piece, so here are all the scenes so far in a vaguely correct order. Still quite a few gaps and there is lots still to work on but there are lots of bits I really like. Really would like to get all the scenes pretty much done by this weekend!
