Hurrah! My colour scripts are done! Now the people i've got helping me with my backgrounds and I can crack on with the backgrounds. I'd like to get as much background work as possible done within the following week because i have one weeks work experience starting from the 1st of February with a studio in Bristol called A Productions. I'm really excited about that but kind of nervous too. I don't have the best of luck and i'm worried i'll end up doing something horribly wrong and get black balled from the entire industry! Fingers crossed that doesn't happen.
It's been a very busy week and they're only going to get busier so it looks like i'm not going to have as much time to work on my ZUDA entry as i'd like so i'll probably have to enter it in the March competition. I've got to prioritise and put my education first so i'll work on it when i can rather than rushing it. The competition will always be there.
I've rambled enough.
'til next time!

As you can see above, i have begun work on the final pages of my Zuda Comics entry. I started today and there is still alot of work to be done on it, but i just thought i'd show what i've got so far. Below is my rough layout. I changed the really lame pose in the first panel to something that i think works and reads so much better.

Howdy Amy, there's the two colour key/layout things. Remember on thew one with the factory that the hills closest to us and the billboard need to be on seperate layers so i can move them about when i animate the shot. They're 1024 x 576 pixels. And that black spoldge is the brush.

Speaking of fine tuning, i added the medals and tribal markings to that weird alien captain guy i uploaded yesterday but it didn't look much better. It's a pretty poor painting as it is, but tomorrow i may try and rework his hand altogether, elimante the black lines and just add mor detail to try and make it look more painterly.
Now then, onto real reason for this post. Above is a page from one of this months Zuda Comics entries, The Phantom Sword. It was second in this months ranks but has dropped to third. It needs to be number one! It must win! It's brilliant and i want to keep reading it for as long as i can. So i am begging everyone that reads this to sign up and give it your vote, pleeeeease! It's a great site anyways, full of amazing and free comics of all different genres to read. Y'all might aswell sign up now and vote for this because i'll only be bugging you to do it when i enter the competition myself next month. Do it! www.zudacomics.com . I'll be checking on you all, even my Mam and Dad and family.

Uni has started back and i'm kind of off to a slow start, though i've finally gotten a new Wacom tablet (the Intuos 4, A5 size) and it is amazing! It was a late Christmas gift from my parents and it already seems to be making a difference to my work. Above is a background study for my film and below is something i just did today for a break from uni work. Hopefully i'll be updating more often now i'm back on the case in uni.
