Geoff Ind, demo reel 2013.

I am starting to get the hang of this blogging lark!

This is my latest Demo reel which shows examples of some of my more recent work, including Character Animation, Lighting, Rendering and Composite. It also has some of my hand drawn animation and digital 2D animation and painting.

UPDATE: I now have a new Demo reel which you can view here.

Examples of my work, Childrens book Illustration.

I recently completed a freelance job to illustrate parts of a series of children's book's which the author wanted to include with his manuscript when he submitted it to the publisher. 

Below is one of the completed illustrations. 

Children's book Illustration.

To give you an idea of my process for this drawing I have outlined the stages that all of the illustrations went through after the initial quote for the job was accepted by the client.

The first step was to go through the manuscripts text and to come up with visuals for each of the passages, these visuals where discussed with the author and adjusted as required for the story.

Next I drew up a rough version of the chosen passage (the client asked for certain passages to be illustrated) in pencil for approval by the client, if there where any changes needed to the drawing they would be made next, again going back to the client for approval before moving on to clean up. 

After final rough approval I would then clean up the drawing getting rid of any unnecessary detail or line work. After clean up the drawing was scanned and painted digitally and finally sent of to the client for colour approval. Again if there are any changes needed these would then be made before final approval of the completed colour illustration.

Examples of my work, 3D Desktop Graphics.

For the last 2 years I have created the graphics for use at South Seas Film and Television school on their computer desktop profiles.

In 2012 the theme was the 20th anniversary of the school's opening.

This year I wanted to mix it up and to represent the re-branded colours of the school.

Examples of my work, Illustration and Digital Painting.

Illustration: Digital painting, final piece printed on photo canvas.
This will be my first post to my blog and and I wanted to start with a bang! This piece was a gift and was completed over approximately 40 hours, the original design was drawn out on paper before being scanned and painted digitally.
