I want most or all of these things…. except the Nutella things…. Nutella’s overrated… there I said it!
First run through for timing and scene editing purposes.
I’m in love with everything about this… the soundscape is as good as the animation as far as I’m concerned.

Instead of my usual hanging about scratching and going to the pub, this weekend I attended a workshop in Belfast delivered by two world renowned artists from WETA.
White Cloud Workshops Director, White Cloud Worlds Editor, Concept
Designer, Illustrator, Art Director , Graphic Designer
Illustrator, Concept Designer
We had 2 days to look at conceptual art techniques focusing more specifically on the design and aesthetics side of things. It was amazingly refreshing to have 2 days undisturbed to indulge in some actual art and some personal development…. I cannot remember the last time I had that much time in a block to work on conceptual art, certainly not since joining the University. I’ll tell you what, there is a wealth of talented people in Northern Ireland at the moment creating some very impressive work during the workshop. I picked up some excellent tips on design development for characters, creatures and for environment design (we had exercises running in all 3) and a few Photoshop tips from the masters that will change the way I paint digitally… hopefully for the better.
Anyway what I found very comforting was how close their methodologies are to what we do in the University on the Drawing, Animation and even the 3d Animation modules. There are a few new things I will incorporate to the class however and hopefully will enhance the learnings. I’d like to run a class on these techniques in the near future. Maybe pass on some of the ideas. Great weekend all round really.
