Mini Transformers


Fun fun fun. This one was pretty straight forward. Really enjoyed Animating it, and it didn't take too long either. Animated whilst listening to Beethoven... good times. I'm only responsible for the Animation.

Model was created by Gary Wee. Check link for download below.

Indigo, Star & Super psychic

This one was quite a fun one to do. I was inspired to do this by a lot of YouTube videos about indigo, star & super psychic children with awesome and intriguing abilities. Blind kids and teens who can use their tongues for echo location. Kids who can see perfectly well in the dark, without the need for lights. Young spiritual kids being connected to 'source' 'god' whatever you want to call it. Remembering who or what they were before being born. Really cool stuff.

I started this project a while ago, though at the time never thought I'd be able to draw/paint what was in my head. After some improvement in digital painting, I found the file again and decided to finish it. I think it looks cool :D

Original sketch. A few things from the line art changed in the final painting i.e. the right hand of the little girl and her stuffed Teddy Bear. The size of one or two characters eyes.

Animation test

Rig provided here SPACE MARINE RIG

Key frame animation done in Maya. Took me a short while to do this. I hadn't animated for a bit so I thought it'd be fun. Not the best looking piece of animation body mechanics, though I didn't use any reference... a bad habit of mine that needs to be amended.

Mummy and I

From the mind's eye again. This one was a little more difficult. I kept having to close my eyes, to try and see the Elephants in my head. Got frustrated after a short while, hard time seeing the Elephant in my mind's eye. I first started with the Mother. She proved very difficult to capture upon my initial attempt.

Took a break for a while, and came back to the drawing with fresh eyes. More importantly with a fresher (mind's eye) I was able to see much more clearly where I wanted to place my brush strokes. Especially when it came to the Elephant Calf. I could almost see it on the canvas, before drawing it. To my own surprise I did the calf quite quickly.

... after having looked at images of Elephants, it came to my attention that female Elephants tend to have smaller Tusks.
