Making a Movie

So i pitched my film to the course on Thursday and on Friday found out people liked it enough to want it made. Gonna be a long year, but gonna be sick at the end of it. Anyways here is some artwork i have yet to share. Music is in the works too and is sounding sick.

Ripping off Frank Miller

Just got the book "Ronin" by Frank Miller. Loved the ink work by Miller as per usual. However, just like when I read 300 the thing that struck me the most was Lynn Varley's colouring and in Ronin there's a particularly striking colour palette. Anyway thought I'd try explore this with my own film pitche chracter.

Worker Ant

Was look through my stuff and found a comic i was making a few years back and never finished. Think i may redo it in the future, but for now I've used the main character as the subject of some digi paint practice.


primordial life

Today has been about drawing primordial life, further development of my film pitch. Weird little critters made of translucent shapes floating in a void.

Sylvain chomet study

Been studying Sylvain Chomet, and attempted to design a character i his quirky french style. I particularly like the attention he has to anatomy and line quality with such exaggerated characters. I made a rugby player, based losely on Lawrence Dilaglio. Not sure its very successful as a Chomet study. May produce a different character.

Concept art

For our final term of second year we have to develop a film pitch. I f good enough it could get made in our third year. Been working hard on mine, won't give too much away but here are some conceptual piecfes I have done, to show the character and his environment.


Above is the guy in his space ship. Below you can see earlier versions where he sits inside a tree, but it looked too much like that film "The Fountain," which is a great film that I have too much pride in visually ripping off.
