Auto Character Setup released

Last year (and this year so far too) has been extremely busy for me. Probably why I haven't been posting pretty much at all during that time. The biggest project was Auto Character Setup - an auto rigging plugin for Luxology modo that I had been developing over last 18 months or so. The plugin was finally released in mid-march 2013. The last 2 weeks of work before release were probably the hardest working days I have had for a long time. But it was worth it.
I'm into digital character animation and programming A LOT, I just love to code and I want to take ACS much further. Time will tell. Meanwhile, you can read about and buy Auto Character Setup via Luxology website.

Alice: Madness Returns pitch designs

A few years ago I worked on "Alice: Madness Returns" game trailers doing colour designs and mattepaintings (see previous posts) but before that I also worked on a pitch for this project. That particualr pitch didn't win but I quite like 2 images that I did for Pete Candeland's treatment. So I thought I would show these forgotten designs. You can see that the first one is partially based on one of my personal artworks ("Forest").

Wizards vs Aliens concept designs

Some 18 months ago I was asked by London's animation studio Not To Scale to do a few early VFX designs for BBC's original drama "Wizards vs Aliens". There wasn't much time so I only did a couple of images. Still, working with Ubik directors Nick Losse and Ste Dalton was a really good exprience. "Wizards vs Aliens" were aired at least a few months go so I thought I would show some of these designs. See the drama trailer on YouTube.
