Ria and Ryan Storyboards

Here are some storyboards i drew from Ria and Ryan's Really Big Pilot Show. These are from the Pirate Scene, which I feel has some of the best camera angles and Filmic language from the whole series so far!

Composited Earth Zoom and Rotation

This is an unfinished clip from a film i am helping to make. Don't ask me about the characters or the method of how they were shot into space, this was not my idea i was just doing what i was told! The first 3D clip was not done by me, i just composited the earth zoom and rotation, made the clouds and cameras. There are supposed to be twinkling stars in the background, but due to the quality of the upload they have disappeared... When i make my final compositing showreel i will upload it to a server so the quality will be better!

From what i can gather about this clip of the film, the four characters have arrived on an island which is in fact a Bum, which then proceeds to eject them via flatulance through the Earth's atmosphere and into space. Story and Concept Courtesy of the independant Comedy Film Company 'Punchdrunk'.

Brick The Burgler

This is 'Brick' The Burglar. You may recognise the character from my showreels. He is one of my earlier characters, dating back to my first year of my Animation studies.

I thought that it was time to revamp him and make him look better, as opposed to the simplistic block colour version i had previously used. In the background you can see the original pencil sketch.

Luntara Album Covers

This is the second draft of the album cover i designed for the Metal Band Luntara, and their as yet unreleased debut album 'The Arrival'. The Green Spider-Planet represents The Band, and their arrival to Earth signifies their Arrival into the Public Eye.

This was initially intended to be another album cover for Luntara, but it as yet has a use. It may become the back cover. It is slightly influenced by the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Some Random 3D Heads

This is a practice at modelling in Maya. It didn't take me too long to do, and i'm not entirely sure what it is supposed to be...

I prefer this model a lot more, as i like the structre of the face more then my previous attempt. Again, done in Maya.

The Above image is the Cyberchicken and its prey. This is one of my favourite pictures i have ever done. One day i went a bit nuts and drew nothing but chickens, and then went a bit further and drew this. On the right are sketches of actual chickens ...

Pencil, pen and photoshop.
