Frog Ornament Facelift

So for the past nine days in my spare time across many evenings I have been working on repainting an old frog ornament using acrylic paints. I mainly did this for fun and it also needed a facelift anyways.

So here is a comparison image to show what it originally looked like, the undercoat and finally the end result.

In the second image shows the end result from four different angles.

The colour scheme is based off the leaf green tree frog. So overall I am quite happy on the final result. 😀

New Business Logo v4!

So for some time I have been thinking that I really need to update my pre-existing logo with a new design.

So here it is!

I decided to revamp the previous logo with a new simpler design, plus I was able to reduce the number of individual shapes down to five only. The logo is now facing a three-quarter view and it uses a similar colour scheme from the previous design too. This will also make it easier to animate too. My other name (Ian2Danim) is still present but I made it more bigger so it is easier to see.

Aria the Fairy Acrylic painting

I also done another acrylic painting before Christmas last year and it is of a chibi fairy named Aria. She is based on my brothers and his girlfriend baby girl who is also named Aria too. Originally I done this as a Christmas present my brothers girlfriend.

I am actually thinking of making series of fairy’s with this own element in the future, so I am looking forward to working on that. 🙂

New Business Promo Animation in the works

So for the past few weeks I have been working on a new project which is an mixed-media animation that shows off my skills and experience. The length of the animation will be between one to two minutes long.

It will be quite ambitious as I have planned that each section of the animation will use a different art style rather than a single style throughout the whole piece.

I will be using a combination of different software such as Flash, Photoshop, illustrator, After Effects and Premiere Pro in order to put the animation together.

At this moment of time I have completed the planning, draft artwork and draft storyboard. The next stage is the concept art and final storyboard.

I’m hoping I can get this project done by the end of April or early May so we will see. So yes it will be quite a fun and experimental project and if it goes well I may decide to make a new one each year.

Phoebe the Chihuahua Christmas Present

I finally have a decent photo of an acrylic painting that I did for a Christmas present last year.  It is a painting of the newest member of my sisters family a Chihuahua named Phoebe.

My next painting that I am planning into doing in my spare time is of my cocker spaniel named Basil. I did do one of him a couple of years ago, but I would like to do one in my updated style. 🙂
