Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd has always been one of my favourite musicals.
We won't speak of the film version. No. That just didn't happen.

Another warm up doodle that I decided to finish.

Murder Most Foul

Just some quick doodles of my three favourite Shakespearean plays: Othello, Macbeth & Hamlet

Oingo Boingo

One of my warm up doodles today. 
Danny Elfman, the lead singer of the band no one ever heard of, Oingo Boingo.

When I was a kid I loved Oingo Boingo beyond all reason. 
I only seriously got back into drawing because I liked to draw Danny. Whoops.

Chroma: The Chroma Monster

I'm having difficulty coming up with the design for the monster within my film. I want something scary and lanky that is almost like a shadow. Since it will be animated traditionally (not stop motion, like the rest of the film), the design cant be overly complicated.

This is the design as I have it right now. It'll probably change a dozen more times.

Jack & Sally

The Nightmare Before Christmas was one of my favourite films as a kid. The first time I saw it, it scared the crap out of me and I had to turn it off before 'This Is Halloween', the opening song, finished. 

There's something beautiful about stop motion, it's absolutely terrifying and yet so alluring. S'probably why it's become such a huge bit of my life over the last few years.

Sketched this about a year ago and never finished it until today.

First Day Back: Scribbles

Haven't posted any scribbly-sketchy-not-finishy stuff here lately.

Just some scribbles from my first day back of 4th year. So rusty at life drawing after not doing it for four months- these are all under a minute because I can't pay attention for longer. Crayola markers are my new life drawing best friends; I cant be arsed to spend money on markers anymore since puppet supplies are so expensive. So I have 60 Crayolas that cost me around 5$.

Doodles are done in my Psychology elective because I can't keep up with the note-keeping.

Chroma: Charlie Design

I was waiting to hear back if stop motion was a go before I posted any more Chroma stuff here. It is, so here is some design of my main character, Charlie.

• 12'' tall
• Ball & Socket Armature
• Cast plastic head
• Hands cast in silicone, painted details.
• Faux-fur wig

So Chroma is 'officially' in production. So excited.

Beach Girl

It's still stupid hot here.
Inspired by someone & their fashion.

Lines in Flash, everything else is Photoshop.

Chroma: Prop Concepts

Here are some concept sketches of props from my thesis film, Chroma. Mostly trying to find a design style.
