Concept art and production stills from upcoming project

A few more weeks and I will finally call myself a graduate. 17 years worth of studying, homework and coursework will come to an end and… real life will hit hard with the challenges of job hunting (O_O)

But until then here are some concept designs I did for my final project, a 5 mins long animation 🙂

Flash graphic novel – “A story of hope for the bullied”

Alright! I’ve abandoned my blog for quite a loooong time now but I’m back with some updates before disappearing again into the battle with uni coursework.

First of all Happy New Year in 2013! 😀

My latest project, which is actually a couple of weeks old now, is one of my biggest accomplishments so far and I really am proud and happy that I decided to go along with it, because I had many doubts about it and wanted to stop halfway through a couple of times. I’m glad I didn’t, because it turned out in the end I actually managed to make a difference in some people’s lives and give them a bit of hope, which is what my project aimed to do. It is a flash comic strip dealing with the issue of bullycide or suicides caused by bullying, and I originally created it as an entry for Creativity with a Conscience competition, here in the UK.

My first matte painting

 “Reasons to smile”

This is my entry for a Fotolia competition over at DeviantArt and also my very first matte painting 🙂 The challenge was about using one Fotolia stock image to create a post-apocalyptic scene. In my vision in a post-apocalyptic infested world the governments are controlling areas with high level of radiation and diseases and keep contaminated and mutated people quarantined inside. The people in the image are all wearing some sort of GPS system collars which helps the government keep track of their position and not let them outside their towns. Continue reading

Mini-comic

I just came across an old 4 panel comic strip I had to do for uni in my first year. I really enjoyed this one. It was based on a story I had started to write some years ago, more as a stress-relief than out of need of creating. The characters are a curly-haired girl, a furless rabbit, a koi flying fish that lived in a birds cage and a gianormous baby. Al these characters were actually metaphorical representations of some real people in my life that were more or less causing me some substantial distress 🙂 so I decided to channel my stress into something creative and boy did it feel good! I didn’t get to finish the story though… maybe because the energy flow ended when we parted.

This mini-comic shows the moment when the Baby gets nervous for not getting the attention it wants and swells like a balloon! The last panel is a view of their house from outside.
