back to work

had a few weeks away from Rumpus whilst making a couple of shorts at Wonky Films for the 4mations website. it was good fun, they'll be online in November. the series is called Suburban Myths by the way. Miki Cash from Wonky directed the first two and i did the second two.

but back to Rumpus now. Animatic's gone to Alex the musician and i'm going to draw some backgrounds for a few weeks - hopefully with the help of Seb

and here's a little running monster.

more early animation tests

more monster designs that never got used!

old animation test

an old animation test - this creature here also bears no resemblance to them now. there's a few of these knocking about, really should finalise some designs before getting excited and animating them in future

some rough monster designs....

a lot of monsters were drawn and none of them really bear any resemblance to how they are now

Rumpus is a 5 minute musical film about 2 tribes of monsters who don't get on very well. this is what they used to look like but they've changed a little bit now. I'm going to be working on it for bloody ages and thought a blog might provide some gentle encouragement. designs, boards and animation tests will pop up here every now and then.

Louis Jones did the hard work on this background. i drew him a rubbish rough picture and he made it look lovely. sometimes i pretend i did it all.
