Alive Animation

My animation of the happy little squirrel from the course ‘Alive‘ by Pierrick Picaut.  An excellent course, I would recommend it and it has really helped me to fill in a bunch of missing gaps and further learn the animation process. For this animation, all the squirrel animations were created by me and I have

The 7 Workflows of Professional Animators

The 7 Workflows of Professional Animators

A video on animation workflows that is well worth watching. It emphasises that they are different approaches to these workflows and there are different ways to do things in animation. But Sir Wade Neistadt (sorry not sure of his real name or if this is his real name!) goes over different approaches for how you can animate your

12 Principles of Animation

The 12 Principles of Animation

An excellently made video, from Alan Becker, on the 12 principles of animation. This is something that every animator should know as well as being a really interesting video to watch.

Zepellin Air Balloon – Textured in Substance Painter

Zepellin Air Balloon

This was a personal project and some practice using Substance Painter:

I found this great model on sketchfab and wanted to give it a coat of paint! After searching out some reference images I was inspired by 17th and 18th-century ship living quarters and some of the art and maps that were placed within them.

I textured this

Treehouse (Free download)

Stylised Treehouse

A treehouse I modelled in Blender and textured in substance painter. It’s made almost completely from just one single object that I modelled into a plank to start with and then simply resized and duplicate for different sections (making sure to add some changes to the objects to avoid any repetition in shape).

A Ethereal Ring – Fit for a Great Mage

An Ethereal Ring

The idea for this ring was inspired by Lord of the Rings – which interestingly seems to be the number one inspiration for any type of ring in a fantasy or often non-fantasy setting. So perhaps not the most original source, but still a fantastic source to take inspiration from. I modelled and textured this ring in Blender,
