Bonnie Animation Test

Wow, its been a while since O posted anything. Oops sorry!

The last few days I have been kept busy working on an animation test for a new zealand animation studio. Fingers crossed I can pick up more work if all goes well.

The animation rig I used for the test is called "Bonnie" by Josh Sobel. She is quite nice to work with and is nicely designed. If you want to download her you can find her at the following address


The audio was supplied by the animation studio and the only direction I was given is that she should be animated in a mid shot.

Anyway this is what I came up with.

The animation took me about 30 hours of work.

Quick Warm-up sketch.

This is generally how my drawings start out life, as a very quick and rough sketch. In these quick sketches I mainly concentrate on Gesture, Anatomy, Perspective and Silhouette.

I then draw over my sketches on a new layer refining the drawing and adding more detail in a more finished clean line style. Sometimes I feel that the first sketch that I do is often the one with the most life in it. This year I resolve to try and keep the looseness and vibrancy of these initial sketches in my work.

This one was completed in about 15 minutes or so while I was warming up this morning. I kind of like how it came out, hopefully I'll come back and do more of a finished version later.

Ruff warm up sketch "Victorious Boxer!"

I should probably put some feet sticking into frame of the vanquished boxer or something similar!

Ray BB8 Sketch

Finally got to see the new Star Wars movie last week which I really enjoyed. I especially Loved Rey and BB8, so when I was sketching today that's what I started to draw.

I quite like how this sketch came out at the moment but I'll sit on it for a bit and come back to it with fresh eyes in a few days time. My intention with drawing this is to paint it up and make a finished piece that could possibly go in my folio.

Rey and BB8.
