Whilst storyboarding episodes for Jungle junction I felt like doing some more finished drawings. I was lost for a subject so I decided to pay tribute to my favourite characters from the classic Sega game.
I may do more at a later date!
Whilst working on Season 3 of the popular Horrid Henry TV series I was given an episode that really excited me as it involved a superhero that was well versed in the martial arts. Being a keen martial artist myself I jumped at the chance to make his moves authentic and as the show was 2d I could have an input in the actual animation as well. There was a particular manoeuvre that was unique to the character involving a flipping action. I decided to base it on the Butterfly twist or B-twist which is a popular move in the tricking scene. I my self can do a basic version called the butterfly which gave me a good understanding of the execution but the B-twist is a little more complex so I decided to make some sketches from some youtube sources to aid me in my posing.Above is an example of the original sketches and how I adapted them for the signature move.
I will post the actual boards once the series is doing the rounds on CITV!
Being a huge Disney fan (in traditional animated feature sense) I used to swoon over the Disney Princess's created by the likes of Marc Davis, Glen Keene, Mark Henn, and James Baxter in my youth...Princess Jasmine was always my favourite and I always used to dream of having my very own Princess Jasmine one day! well miraculously in true Disney tradition I got what I wanted! Though I am far from the calibre of the legendary artists I sighted above I thought id fashion an image in the manner of a Disney princess of my girl! This one is for you princess!
