'nother one

I really will have to go out and buy some canvas now...

Paint Paint Paint

I have decided to give painting a try, I mean, not quite paint on canvas yet, but making colour marks rather than drawing lines.
This was an idea I had about doing paintings with bits missing.
I started sketching with a fat brush in Photoshop and then set about colouring it all in.
Now that that's done I'm going to buy a canvas and get my oil paints out and do it for real.
It feels a bit like a cheat doing it digitally first, but I discovered I quite enjoy cheating if I admit to it.

I also had some spare time to animate a couple of stings for the awards...
Here is the first one:

Long time

Hithere, I'm back again after animating the titles on Aardman's new film: "Pirates"
It's too early to share any of the material with the world as the film won't be out before March.
So here, meanwhile is the trophy I build for the British Animation Awards.
Someone's going to win it...
