2010 - Happy New Year

Never Fear....i am here now :) First off....AVATAR - WOW...thats all i am saying and im sure you feel the same way. Secondly... i have started blocking out a Bruce Lee vs Chuck Norris fight scene....why? i dont know...its not easy...im only on key poses at the moment though...(sorry about the controls, forgot to hide them )

Thirdly... I ran Cardiff Half Marathon Back in October, I was aiming to get a time of 2 hrs 30. I managed to do it in - 1 hr 50. As you can imagine i was pretty stoked about that time, was never much of a runner before i signed up for it mid August, so im pretty proud of myself for doing it.

Finally....I now have a job...Working as a graphic designer for a print company...not sure how long its gunna last but im grateful for the work.

Ill try and get some more blogs and work up here soon

I wish you all a Hppy new year :)

Graduation

Well,
last Friday, myself and some good friends graduated from University of Glamorgan, Atrium.
It was Great to see some of the faces that i havnt seen much of over the last month and we had a very big, alcohol fueled celebration to round off our 4 years together.
Jamie and Joe are still up in Scotland at the moment, so the plan is to go up with Alex and visit them for a weekend within the next month before they come home - dont worry they were home for graduation - as seen in the picture of me and them below.

So whats the plan now? Animate and job hunt i guess.lol
and to stay in touch and still see my friends.

Here are two pics for you to have a look at -

Showreel June 2009

For some reason the video didnt show up on my last post.

So here it is.......



Luke

End of an Era.......

So this week saw my last week in university...
Its quite a sad time for me as I will not be seeing as much of all the amazing friends and people I have met over the last four years.
However im sure it will not be the last time I see their faces.
Now that I am being let out into the big wide world, I have put together a showreel.
My Showreel is just a small sample of the work I have been working on for the last 6 months.
as time goes on i will be adding and changing around peices of work that i have produced.

on another note......

Myself and Alex ( http://ajsanimation.blogspot.com/ ) went to see Terminator Salvation yesterday.
i was pleasantly suprised with how good the film was. Infact, I loved it. The CG was very well done, especially the Arnie cameo......
I wont say any more about it as I dont want to spoil it....so go watch it!!

Anyway ill leave you with my showreel.........

Also i have started a new dialouge peice for uni.

i decided to do something a little different.

i wanted to bring the musical element that disney and other animation studios bring to there 2D productions to Computer animation -

so iv started a block out.not quite sure on some of the poses, but i only really started it yesterday so its a long way to go.

the clip is from FAME the musical, the song is - I want to make magic

Walk

Well,
The Happy Gilmore idea has been put on the backburner. For now atleast.
Now that im back in uni, the project briefs have to come first.
so.....
Here are a few walks that I have done this week. It was also my first time using maya, so out of my confort zone. i came across a few problems, but I got used to it in the end.
these need alot of work.....but im not sure whether to carry on with them, or start again from scratch using the knowledge i have learnt. I have to start new walks for my next project anyway, these i will be sure to make as good as i can get them.
anyway, here is what i have been working on so far......
(sorry if the video is shakey, not sure why)
