Fly Windstorm



This is a character that I have had in my head for a while. This is Fly Windstorm, she has robotic hands and the power to shoot bolts of electricity from them. For this picture I have done a lot of experimenting with different effects like gradients, glows, the burn and dodge tool.

Hunter and the Lightning Bird (Impundulu)


Here are the final designs for my Lightning Bird (Impundulu)  animation. The Hunter is going to try and catch the bird with surprising consequences. Here I have experimented with gradient as shading and I think it has worked out pretty well might do more of it. In the mean time if you want to have a look at the animatic for these characters then here it is https://vimeo.com/52530577 I am currently working on the riggs for both of these in Toon Boom.

Impundulu


his is a new character for a myths and legend project that I am doing. This is an Impundulu, a vampire type bird that lures women away and drinks there blood. Said to be a familiar for witches and Voodoo men. 

Can't decide if the tips if his wing should be yellow or just left grey. 

He still has a lot of development to go as I am still debating about the colours but I do like the general shape of the character.     

Fly redesigned


This is and updated version for a character I have wanted to draw for a while. She is cat/humanoid type creature with wings and uses a whip for a weapon.

I have taken a different approach to this drawing because I haven't used any lines and have just relied on shading. I will try and do more of this in the future.

Geckos


For my tiny Planet I'm going to have another little animal on the planet to that will be near the lava bath and a lot of finny things will happen to him. So O decided to make him a gecko because my main characters is a lizard. So here are some different colour ideas for the Gecko. I put them on a piece of the background so I could see what would be the best colour for him compared to the background colour.
