Film & Animation!

Got a Film and Animation Daily Deviation suggestion?


Note me with your suggestion and if you wish a little comment on what you think about the piece!

I have a feature film/animation in development, and I want to be part of the Film In Progress articles! Where do I sign up?


Just take a quick look at this fav.me/d5n42wg to give you a little idea and send me a note to let me know you're interested. I'll ask you some questions loosely based on the ones you see in that journal!

I'm interested in submitting film/animation but I can't submit my work!


Take a look at this faq!

FAQ #831: Why can't just anyone submit film?

Hey! Since you animate, think you could help me out with my work?


Unfortunately I cannot work for free. I'm happy giving advice and words of wisdom based on my experiences, however I'm a freelance illustrator and animator, and I have to pay my bills. ;P

Busy bee!

So tired right now, but slowly recovering. It's been non-stop recently from both my day job and my freelance work. Everything just kept coming but just got to soldier on right?

For those who don't follow my Twitter or Facebook art page I've got a couple of new videos up.

The most recently one is Awake with Me by Sarah Moss.



My job before this was a quicker job, it's Golden and Green by Ghosts in Daylight. 



They're both very different videos but hope you enjoy them. :)

If you like these videos please share them around. :love:

And how are you all? :heart:

Boy it's been a crazy couple of months, I've had to move, had a new job, and I'm still freelancing! It's been completely non-stop so I haven't really posted anything personal here for a while! 

Hope you all like my latest work, for those of you who watch follow my Twitter and Facebook you'll know I finished this a little while ago but it was just waiting for a release date.

We hope you enjoy this video, there's more projects coming up in the months to come! :)



On the dA side of things me and TimberClipse will be planning a series of themed features and articles in the months to come and we hope to make it a regular thing!

Hello Deviants!

TimberClipse and myself have been working on a new gallery structure for a while. We have agreed there is far too many categories in there and too often work gets submitted in the wrong place. It doesn't help as well that sometimes subject matter can cross a grey area and it could technically belong in a few sub-categories!

So what we would like to do is present to you all a couple of ideas we have had for a new structure. We want to streamline the process and make it easier for you to find a category. Especially as a lot of categories on there have roughly a further 8-10 extra sub-categories! So as it stands our film and animation gallery has more categories than I can count! :faint:

However it's all well and good what we think is good but at the end of the day this is for you guys so all your feedback is important to us. Please leave us a comment with which you prefer, and any other comments you have! We are looking forward to hearing what you have to say about our plan.

Good day Deviants!

As you may have heard we've got a good chunk of Art History for you all once again! For those of you who are unfamiliar with this, the purpose is to explore the origins and beginnings of all the various art genres we love today. Art History covers all genres and artists, from Painting to Poetry, Sculpture to Sewing and all that's in between!

At the moment the week is between 15th - 21st February and it's looking like this:

  • Sunday 15th: Digital Art Day
  • Monday 16th: Traditional Art Day
  • Tuesday 17th: Film & Animation Day
  • Wednesday 18th: Lit Day
  • Thursday 19th: Artisan Crafts Day
  • Friday 20th: Photography Day
  • Saturday 21st: Cartoons, Manga, Anthro & Fan Art Day

So as you can see Tuesday 17th is our day to shine as the Film & Animation community! So what we're looking for right now is anyone who wants to contribute anything such as Features (thumbnails), Detailed Articles, Interviews with other Deviants, Mini-Contests, Chat events and more! 

For more information please check out and share DistortedSmile's blog :dummy: distortedsmile.deviantart.com/…

We are looking forward to hearing from you and we hope you join us, we're all rather pumped for Art History week!

Music video and life update!

Fri Oct 31, 2014, 1:37 PM
Firstly here's my latest freelance work, it's a horror themed animated music video, that's based on a story called Dark Amelia by Sally O'Reilly.

The song was written by Darla and the Blonde, and it was inspired by the story itself.

We went down a very 'motion graphic' approach to the animation which makes a change for me! It was fun to work on. Collaborating with a writer and musicians was a great experience!



Now as for the boring life stuff, some of you here will know I'm going to be moving flats soon. My housemates/landlords are moving out to their new house just before Christmas so we've had to flat hunt super rapido! Luckily we've found a place now and we're awaiting all the paper work etc. So I've got a super busy month ahead with the potential to not have Internet for a brief period of time because of this as well. So bit of a heads up there really! And I'll be around but if I disappear, don't call the coast guard, it's probably because I'm in the middle of my move and awaiting connectivity. =P

Also I'm having a problem with my dA videos at the moment for reasons I just don't know yet...I'm trying to work it out with the Help Desk team (THANKS!). So for the time being if you have a Film & Animation DD suggestion, my partner in crime TimberClipse will be your primary contact for the time being until that's sorted out. :)

Hope you're all well and have a happy Halloween! :#1:

Kingman Cheng
Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United Kingdom
Hey there! I'm Kingman Cheng and I'm a BBC (British Born Chinese) illustrator and animator, who is also skilled in UI and website design.

My work is inspired by practically anything I've seen, heard or experienced in my life. To name just a few: old tales, childhood memories, history, culture, and even just conversations I've had.

I can work in a wide variety of styles because I believe in being adaptive and designing to fit the briefs I work to. However I have to say my work generally isn't 'clean', and I love textures, tone and exciting composition!

2012 - Winner of the Piccadilly Circus Screen Challenge.
2012/2013 - Music video shortlisted for bang! Short Film Festival.
2012 - Music video wins Best Music in the Braine Hownd Awards.
2013 - 'Howl's Moving Castle' pixel animation selected for a Daily Deviation award at DeviantART.
2013 - Winner of Rachel Bright's Love Monster & The Perfect Book Trailer Competition
2014 - Official music video for Through the Fields selected for a Daily Deviation award at DeviantART.

If you would like to contact me about my work or would just like a bit of a chat please don't hestitate to contact me!
