Portentious Pre Sketchin


Well another potential project on the horizon.
Above snippet of the sketches as I was checking out the existing characters.

Will it go the way of several card games, Tim Ferguson's thing, work Animal Logic, work on Aquaman, and a host of other
things-that-didn't-pan-out?

We'll see.



Bit of flu induced hilarity


Not a good photo of not a good picture.
However , dear void , who will stop me?

Apart from head not being in watercolour space-
there was no planning and no drawing really

Looks like I didn't know what I was doing.... but you know watercolour paper is expensive
so even though I should have paper planed it
I persisted for a bit.
Actually my paper plane of choice is the "White meteorite"- so much more accurate when you want to hit someone.

Watercolour 'Happy accidents' eh?
Welcome to the ED I guess.

Start of a little practice

rock2 from Lachlan Creagh on Vimeo.
Started a little bit more anim practice....just thumbnails
a little idea but only spent an afternoon 3.5hrs really,
sort of ran out of steam toward 'end' so the joke of him dropping the rock in shock on the monsters foot is lost at the moment...just have to spend more time- and fix the timing so it registers/works..
just need a beat while he looks at the monter-then drop the rock
Also the ogrey monster didn't really have a plan/design or construction worked out...just started drawing him in.
Also when he jumps around to look- there's supposed to be a wolf howl or something scary sounding so he think to hurry things up by knocking with the rock.

Anyway...good practice to  get my head in the space.

Alligator baiting

Alligator alert from Lachlan Creagh on Vimeo.

An 'alert' alligator.
I *think* usually alligators like crocodiles kind of keep still when they're annoyed and wait for you to do something stupid then they strike out.
They do thrash around more than this too- but I think there is a "Lying down alert " animation I've started where I'll do this (nearly 90 degree turn as they lash out.)
Hopefully though it looks like it wants to bite while busy doing effectively nothing..
