Music video and life update!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

Film & animation in deviantART in general Film & Animation is a gallery in itself on deviantART but it
Official music video to Light Through the DayHey everyone! Super quick update from me because I need to run around and sort out friends wedding things. I only finished baking for them at 00.30 AM this morning... So yeah I'll be away this weekend helping out and attending a friends wedding. Anyway couple of things, firstly I started a Graphic Designer and Multimedia Developer job full time this week so I'll be able to support my freelance work. I've only been there a couple of days but I'm enjoying it so far, the team are friendly and helpful, and I can see some fun challenges ahead!In other news my animated music video to Light Through the Day is composed by Alexander Chapman Campbell as part of his album, Sketches of Light. It was produced by The Smalls and Decca Records/Universal music. Took a little while for release but it's finally here! Hope you all like it! Any likes, shares, tweets etc would be much appreciated. Most of all I hope you all like it! I got to speak to Alexander directly whilst working on thi
My deviantART StoryI was introduced to deviantART by a friend who is no longer active on here. I joined 10 years ago and it's been an amazing journey so far. I started off just posting mostly animé/game inspired drawings and fan art to get feedback from the community. It wasn't until many years of lurking that I finally started to open out and post in the forums. Over time I got to know more deviants and I made some great friends as a result. The only other site I was a real part of was legendofzelda.com, where I also made some great friends over the years!deviantART has grown so much over the years and the artists in every gallery on here is absolutely amazing. Initially it was more about the fan art and game art that I was interested in, and over time as I learnt more as a student and started seeing more of the world, my appreciation for every form of art grew with it. In fact I touch on many areas of art and design, did you guys know I did origami as well?

Heavenly Escorts Welcome once again to Film in Progress! This is a series of articles I am doing on works in progress by filmmakers and animators. Sometimes in our line of work we don't have a lot to show for a long time because lets be honest, production time for film or animation takes an awful long time so it's difficult to show people what you're working on. So what I hope to achieve in these series of articles is to give you a chance to talk about something you're working on, and if you have stills and other pieces of development work you can show it off here as well! To take part in this project or for more information just send me a note I can talk to you (and your team if applicable) about it!Today we have unitzer07 with his team project, Heavenly Escorts !:iconkingmancheng:Hi there unitzer07! Let us start off with a l

1000 anatomy sketches challengeHello and happy holidays everyone! Since the new year is approaching rapidly, and my mind was on new years resolutions, i thought up a challenge for myself to improve my anatomy. And it would be boring to do it alone so i invite you all to join me. Here's how the challenge goes:1. The goal is to reach 1000 anatomy related drawings as fast as possible. There is no deadline.2. You don't have to start in 2015, you can start now.3. Comment on this journal with a link to the drawings you made for this challenge. I will keep an eye on this journal and if you comment anywhere else i might not find your comment. Don't link me in a reply though, my reply stack is chaos, you wouldn't want your comment to get mixed up there. I will check new comments every now and then and award points but i won't look through conversations. So if you finished a sketch or a bunch of sketches then come to this journal and write a new comment every time 4. The drawings can be posted anyw

Happy holidaysHey guys.It's been quite a while since the last update.As I've gotten quite the number of concerned messages over time, I wanted to let you know that I'm still alive. I'm doing okay, as far as my current health situation allows it. As far as my creative process goes, I'm doing great. I've been experimenting with various art types and painting styles, and it feels like that alone already allows for more freedom of expression.It might probably be another while before I regain the time, confidence, and (mainly) energy to frequently update, reply, and share with the world again. But I hope you'll be able to bear with that.To those that sticked around for so long...I wish you happy holidays and all the best for 2015.May your artistic ability's (and all life quality's) far exceed those of 2014.Keep rocking!
