Felt like drawing a bit before my holiday ends, and I figured it’d be a rad place to start. 

Thanks for the inspiration dude!

"Dad" by Christi du Toit

This is my first proper venture into animation, and ended up being a bit more of an experiment with movement and motion in space. Each movement/frame was drawn with a Wacom tablet in Photoshop CS6.

Since my animation is black and white (besides little red cheeks), I decided to do a mini illustration of how the character would look in colour. 

…Ah, you know, coming along. Slowly, but surely. Piece by piece. Frame by frame. 

Boom! A a few bits and pieces of my college animation assignment. It’s coming along. Loads needs to be done though, but I thought I’d share some of the working shots. 

Having some trouble with some of the movements and stuff, but I’m getting a bit better with each new scene.
I’m really not an animator, but I’m having a pretty fun time, and I’ve learned a lot over the past few days, just wish we had more time to work on this.

Did up a series of tattoo-style, graphic t-shirt designs with spoofs of South African culture. You can see the full project, on Behance, here: http://bit.ly/1gA4hmU

Hats off to all animators out there - I envy your skill and patience. This animation stuff is NOT easy. And it’s a lot of work. Like, A LOT. Kind of enjoying it though, in a morbid deadline stress kind of way. It’s coming along. Don’t think it looks THAT terrible for my first proper animation though. Just added one of the many scenes here as a preview.

Still very unsure about how this animation thing is going to play out, but I did a quick illustration for the title scene.

We’re going to be doing a 60 second animation at college over the next 2 weeks or so. Just to confirm, I study graphic design, not animation, but we still touch on it, which is pretty damn rad. Started messing around with a few new things in Photoshop that I haven’t tried before. This should be fun! :D
