Out of Sight - Taiwan Student Animation

This was done by three students graduated from the National Taiwan University of Arts as their graduation project. It's simple, sweet, original and imaginative. And the simple charming soundtrack just adds to the effect. Enjoy!

World's Tallest Man-made Waterfall

Went to Jurong Bird Park today. Did this in about an hour while feeding mozzies.

Batman and His Car

Character design practise using Batman and his Batmobile. Batman and his car are, of course, property of DC comics. The aim of this practise is an exercise in creating a strong unique design for a character, particularly focusing on the use of shapes and contrast (in size, shape and lines). This piece of work has some influences from Nico Marlet, the extremely talented character designer for Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, Bee Movie, etc. He loves using red pencil and ink/markers over them. The Art of Kung Fu Panda is filled with Nico's sketches (and there are tons of them!) and worth every dollar.

I love how the Batmobile is so small and it forces Batman to tuck in his knees in order to get in. Reminds me of bumper cars!

Drawn in Col-Erase red pencil and inked with a felt-tip calligraphy brush pen.

Once in a while I post something on this blog other than my work. Here is a phenomenal piece of 2D animation by Ryan Woodward that is pure magic.
