Lambert Vineyards TVC

Lambert Vineyards TVC from ZOOM Productions Australia on Vimeo.

A short TVC I animated for Zoom Productions in Sydney on behalf of their client Lambert Vineyards. Very quick turn around, but I was pretty up with the end look and pace. I'm glad I managed to get the speckle texture to work in the end. The video premiered at Canberra stadium on the stadium screen!

Life Drawing - December 5th 2012

This week I continued with my experimenting with inks and pens. I also used some water-soluble oil pastels. The model this week was a beardy fellow which was different. I drove to class, which was a bad idea because traffic was terrible, it made me late and put me in a bad mood. I never realised how my head space affected my work or at least my attitude to my work. Next time I'll tram to class and take my time.

Scribbles on my iPad with the Pogo Connect

I finally got my Pogo Connect in the mail the other day. The device was really easy to set up and worked straight away in my favourite apps. I did have some trouble getting brush settings working such as toggling between brush size pressure control and opacity pressure control... To be honest I'm still not entirely sure how choose the appropriate brush setting in Procreate. Despite this I managed to find some nice brushes and do some sketches on the tram and at the airport. Have a look and let me know what you think. Full review for the Pogo Connect soon!

Life Drawing – November 28 2012

This week we had a Japanese model, Ewan, who posed in a kimono. Drawing the fabrics gave my drawings an entirely different focus. The shapes, contrast in form and texture between the model and the large garment was very interesting. I tried to utilise some orange ink I purchased as well as pen and black inks. The most interesting imagery came from the imperfections of the wet media (bleedings, splats etc) with the straight precision, detail and lines created with markers and pens.

Life Drawing November 21 2012

Finally went back to life drawing this week. It was really good. My drawings were a bit rough but turned out ok in the end. I forgot to bring paint brushes and decent paper! Next week I would like to play with ink.

The model was wearing crocs when they arrived! Luckily I did not have to draw them.
