Portraits for Friends

Unfortunately I am unable to post any animation work that I've been doing at the moment, so you'll have to settle with a painting that I crafted for a friends boyfriends birthday.

As you can see the proportions are a tad messed up, which was mainly due to the rush in which it was produced, after having put it off for a fair amount of time the deadline began to loom. The brief was to have both characters pushing a broken down car in a rather camp manner.

This is the first gouache painting I've managed to produce in the last two years, and I must admit that I didn't realise how much I missed producing things by hand. I was however apple + z'ing the table for a while at the beginning!

Despicable Me, original concept

For anyone who is a fan of Despicable Me, this is an interesting presentation by Sergio Pablos who originally pitched for the concept of the film. It's a great presentation in terms of seeing how a original concept transforms once it's been taken up by a larger studio.
