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.

Don’t Give Me No Lip Shitface!

May 20, 2011

I’ve done another repanel (finally got round to finishing it).

It’s from Testicles the Tautologust (pronounced ‘testicleez’) by Jaxon (aka Jack Jackson). You can read the oringinal story HERE and highly recommend that you do. Also check out his other works too!

It’s a great Conan parody and I chose the panel where the old skool frazetta Conan mashes the face of the Marvel pretty boy conan.

Jaxons art work is fantastic. It’s gritty, raw and his characters often speak in a contemporary way regardless of where in time/space the story is set. That’s one of the main things I admire about his work because not only does it add a different kind of humour, it makes the story the much easier to relate due to the familiarity of language.

I kind of prefer the original to my version, mostly because more power is conveyed in the punch and the framing is a lot tighter. It’s still all good fun.

I have been trying to find this video for a while, I just didn’t know what it was called so it took a while.

I’m not quite sure how to put what i’m feeling into words…

Whilst i’m thinking, check it out: Paul Robertson‘s – Kings of Power 4Billion%

Is pretty mental, I love it.
