Keanu Reeves – Man of Tai Chi

August 9, 2013

For those of you that are interested and/or liked the film here is my rendition of Keanu Reeves character, Donaka Mark from Man of Tai Chi. And for those of you that haven’t seen it, it’s Keanu’s first film (directing, as far as I’m aware) and he plays a pretty damn good villain. He nails it as a cold hearted and evil bastard. I hope you like it, I spent a really long time drawing it. Donaka Mark, Keanu Reeves - Man of Tai Chi - Joshua Kahan Josh

What Women Want

December 25, 2012

I don’t believe people really think about the practicalities of the things they off handedly request for Chirstmas. Having said that I don’t think people really want the things they say they do.

At about 2.40am yesterday morning I had the urge to animate a little.

16 hours later and I finished, only taking short breaks for eating and to use the toilet. More impressive (to me anyway) is the fact that I hadn’t slept since the previous day.

Despite the fact that there is still some colouring that I would have liked to have done, I don’t think it’s too much of a problem in the grand scheme of things. The main thing is that the joke comes across.

First thing I did was make a background. I then animated stick men straight ahead using the pencil tool, this was the quickest part of the process. I then went over this with the brush tool very loosely and coloured santa red.

Interestingly (to those that are interested) I recorded the audio about 14hrs in then spent 5 minutes on rough mouth movements which do the job well enough. I then spent an hour on sound and an hour putting it all together.

Wierd way of doing things.

Although I would not reccomend this method of working I find it amazing what a person can achieve when they’re on a roll. However as a result of going to sleep after awake being awake for 35hours my eye sockets hurt and part of my brain still isn’t responding yet insists on hitting itself against the inside of my skull.

February Doodles 2012 Update

February 26, 2012

Got a bunch of of old sketches up over here.

This is dedicated to the slew of films out in 3D, not designed for 3D (and some that were) most of which are rubbish films in and of themselves, that are marketed with the 3D factor. ‘If we make it 3D they might not notice that it’s poo.’ It’s a shame because I want to see more amazing films in 3D!

And this is just silly (notice the deliberate mispelling of ‘tingling’).

Cold Call

January 4, 2012

What better way to start the year than with a nice little bit of animation?!?

I am often asked by people ‘how long does it take to make/complete an animation?‘ And I find it slightly frustrating, not because I don’t have an answer but because the answer I usually give never seems quite adequate enough and I am often rewarded with a blank face still expecting an answer.

I will clarify it. How long is a piece of string? There are so many variables.

It comes down to three things; Time (as in time available vs looming deadline) Money/Man power and Technique/quality. These determine more or less how long an animation (or anything else for that matter) will take.

The more people producing images, backgrounds and or colouring, etc means things will be quicker as they can all work in tandem. The more detailed or complex the drawings are or fluid the animation is the longer it will take as each individual image has to be drawn.

This animation should have taken a week to complete but ended up being spread out over a month and taking a little longer. Which is odd since there isn’t a lot going on or even any colour. The rough animation was done fairly quickly, and it was the cleaning up that took the longest.

The Man Who Loved Breasts

January 8, 2010

There’s a comic i read about a year or so ago called The Man Who Loved Breasts by Robert Goodin.

I loved it, it had some other funny stuff in it too, it was really cool. It still is so check it out!

Anyway i went to his site the other day and that lead me to a blog of his called Covered. It’s a blog where people do their own renditions of comic book covers. There’s some cool stuff on there one of my favourties is Jughead because of it’s simplicity and it’s pretty funny.

It’s awesome. It’s my favourite thing on the internet at the moment (i haven’t been out much).

I haven’t been doing much drawing lately either, which i feel quite upset about it. I’ve been storyboarding for my FMP and then making it into an animatic, it’s been a bit of a drain and all i’ve really done is the odd doodle on the train.

So I intend on doing one or two covers, maybe five…
