the paper fox project

The Paper Fox Project

I’ve just started a new project with the working title of “The paper fox”. My aim is to create an interactive storybook on iPad and Android tablets… <see the full story here> @ <http://creattica.com/>

What a visual way to tell a story.  Very clever technique, I’d love to see an animation with these characters.  Could be a great exercise to rig these things up and make their performance feel as good as their look.  You just naturally love these little guys, people can’t underestimate how well these characters have been designed.  Great work!

a guide to recognising your trolls: concept art from the troll hunter

They’re big, they’re ugly and they smell like the inside of a vegetable drawer in a student flat, but how much do you really know about trolls? <read full story here> @ <http://www.bleedingcool.com/>

Been hearing a bunch about this film, missed it when it showed here at the Sydney film festival.  So I dug seeing some of these sketches.

 

concept art shows the disturbing evolution of batman: arkham city’s harley quinn

We love pin-up art as much as anyone, but there’s something weird about this newly released concept art showing the evolution of Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham City.

Cool little look into some character design.  Gotta say that it’s one of the hardest skills, and most underestimated processes in film-making.  We’ve done it a bunch, and you learn to be prepared for the effort.  All that being said, it’s one of the most fun, most creative, and rewarding jobs when you get it right.  The thought process needs to be so critical visually, that in my opinion it’s right up there with developing a character as you write the script.  In a perfect world the artistic development can work hand in hand with the written development.  That’s the way we like to work when we do our characters.

Just take a look at all the reply-posts on this blog-page and see how character design raises the heat in people!
