This is my final Bachelor film I worked between 2013 and 2014. I worked as a Storyboard Lead, Character Layout artist and Key Animator.

"Game of Thrones" tabletop gaming cloth

This is about a year old, but I felt like posting it on my blog. This is an illustration commission I did for a "Game of Thrones" card tournament that took place in Madrid, Spain. This illustration (depicting two characters from the books/show, Brienne of Tarth and Jaime Lannister)  was printed as a tabletop cloth for the players to use while playing.

Internship work from Calon - Character Design

At Calon I also got the chance to work on character design for another series in development, currently under the title of "Bernie and the Boo Hoos". The series would be animated in 2D and aimed at pre-school children, with an educational purpose on first aid.

Here's the current concept:

   Six year old BERNIE (BERNADETTE) makes some unusual new playmates whilst visiting her paramedic aunt BRIGID in rural Ireland. The BOO HOOS are aliens who're newly arrived on Earth from their home planet which has no gravity. As they approach everything they do with the boundless enthusiasm of young children this is a problem because they are always having accidents in Earth's less forgiving atmosphere.

Following are some of the concepts I drew under the supervision of Robin Lyons and Andrew Offiler.

Internship work from Calon - Storyboard

A bit late, but here is some of the work I did for Calon during September to December of 2014. 

First I worked on some storyboards for the first episode of the webseries 390. The series is still in development, so is the work below.

Range of movement and expressions

Once the character design is almost nailed down I proceeded to study what range of movement he would have and how his face would contort with different expressions.
