I have been teaching myself how to use Photoshop over the last few months, which has been a bit of a struggle....but I am finally getting to grips with the basics.

For my software module I have to produce three different CD covers for an unsigned band called 'The Silent' using the Adobe suite. Here are the final three covers:

A Motion to Stop

I thought it might be about time to put up some work from my first term at Uni. I am just getting used to the constant flow of work and balancing all my modules! With one week left until the Christmas holidays the daunting deadlines are drawing closer, fingers crossed.....

The following work is for my Animation module. We have to plan and produce a stop motion animation using one character to act out a simple story. My character is called Hector Bones, and is, of course, a skeleton man. I have been playing around with the different software used in animation and am now in the process of making my character. It has been so interesting to learn about all the different stages of development and processes it takes to produce a stop motion animation. I am really looking forward to seeing my final edited film! 

This is an animation by the wonderful Kirsten Lepore, an animator whose work I have followed for quite a while:


This is an armature test for my animation:
