11 Second Club Entry

I submitted an 11 Second Club entry for the first time about 5 years ago.
It was a bit rushed..  and i came 51st out of 233 entries.
I was quite please with myself.
The audio this time was from Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back.
Nothing came to mind straight away but after a few more listens I saw something along the lines of the sketches below and jumped in. It was quite ambitious (as usual), a tiger may not have been the best choice but the combination of the stripes and shadows were quite effective. The voters liked it enough at least.. I came 1st :O

Here is the entry I submitted.
I also put a video together to show a bit of my process making this shot.
I know some of you would be interested to see it.

Something a little different

No doodles this time. Here's some animation I did way back in 2011. I've been waiting to see this show since I finished on the project and I finally found it on Youtube! The quality isn't perfect but you get the idea.
It was a really fun project to work on and Luxanimation we're one of the best to work for. This season of Babar actually came in on schedule.

Lefty Doodles

 A week after Joe Weatherly's workshop I had a go at drawing some animals i'd seen on the course from memory but to make things interesting I used my weak hand.

Joe Weatherly Animal Drawing Workshop - London

It's been over a year since my last post and I have neglected posting for too long. It's also been a while since I went out to draw so this workshop with Joe Weatherly was just what I needed to get me back on track.
For me, the 4 day workshop focused on observation, construction and the subtleties of animal anatomy. Even though the sketches were for exploration and for working things out I thought it would be nice to post a bunch.

We started at the National History Museum...

Then off to London Zoo for two days...
