Good day everybody!
I thought as its the end of the month I would give you a wee update of what's been going on.
I have been very busy recently, which is always a good thing!
I've been locked away with a few character design jobs which unfortunately I cant show anything until I'm given the OK which maybe not be for a long time but that's just the way it goes. But I do have some other work that I can show you :)
I wanted to take a few new photos of the last two puppets I made to jazz my portfolio up a bit.
I felt the others photo are quite clean cut so it's nice to add something a little bit edgy and darker.
Here's a bunch of doodles that I've done after work hours. I like to wind down the day with a bit of scribble therapy.
I've also made a couple of silly doodling videos.
Most recently, I have been commissioned to make two puppets for a short film being made at Vienna Film Academy. This is a fantastic freelance job and will keep me extremely busy over the next 2 months. I started this job doing the character design and have now started to make the actual puppets. Fortunately I have an extremely cool client that has granted me permission to post photos while I go along.
The first thing I have been doing is working on the main puppets head. For this I will be doing replacement faces in the same vein as Coraline and Paranorman. It is taking me a while to get right but luckily, thanks to the amazing Flynn Brothers, I have a little bit of a head start in how to do things.

This is a photo of the rough sculpt that I did to help me get the dimensions right. Then the core of the head next to it.
Then here is how the head turned out. Unfortunately I have had to abandon this one and make another as it was a bit too large and was causing me a few problems. No bother though as I am very far into to the final one.
So that's all for the moment. Hopefully I will have some more pictures up soon as things progress. I hope everyone is doing well!!
