The Snowman and the Snowdog!

I was fortunate enough to be able to work on this project from July-October this year as a rendering department assistant. I officially was a ‘matte artist’ and I also rendered (coloured) the characters in two shots of the film!

Here's a link for the film's website

If you are in the UK, Please watch tonight on Channel 4 at 8pm!

It is also repeated on Christmas Day at 13.55 and Sunday 30th December at 17.35

The Making of Documentary: ‘How The Snowman Came Back To Life’ is on Sunday 30th December at 18.05, straight after the film.

Hope you all watch and enjoy! Merry Christmas!

My univeristy friends and I all decided that this year, instead of presents, we were going to draw one another a Christmas card instead! So here are the photos of the illustrations I painted (with gouache paints) for each of them. More photos of these can be found on my tumblr here.

Daenerys Targaryen - Game of Thrones

Doctor Domo! (Matt Smith version)

Mabel Pines - Gravity Falls

Merida - Brave

Tooth and Baby Tooth - Rise of the Guradians

Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham - Downton Abbey

 A photo of all the cards together!

A small painting for my mum!

It was my mum's birthday a few days ago, so I decided to paint her a little something. It took longer than I thought as the brush I used wasn't small enough! But that said, I enjoyed painting it.

This is inspired by Jan Pienkowski's illustrations in his 'Snow White' book belonging to my mum. I used to read it a lot as a child and it still inspires me to this day.

This was painted with gouache.
