Trying out a new app for screen recording. I think this one’s a keeper.

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!

Break Time Doodle Sessions Vol. 1 // Christi du Toit

"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. 

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.

I just want to say thanks to everyone who has recently followed me on Tumblr! The numbers have grown substantially in the last while, and it’s incredibly motivating! You guys are seriously awesome. :)

My Tumblr isn’t updated nearly as recently as my Facebook Page, or my Twitter for that matter, so if you guys want to be up-to-date with what I’m busy with make sure to check them out:
