Animation Showreel

Unfortunately there's quite a few mistakes in the animations (mostly walk cycle) that will need revision.

Fantastic Voyage: Re-style

The background is undecided but the style is now a looot more simple and the lineart is thicker and more lose.
Is the colour too simple now, do you think?
Again more simple and lose style
I can't think of a name for him. I keep calling him "Guy", and it's sticking out of habit. Any suggestions?? :D

Fantastic Voyage: Thumbnails

Here is my main character design so far. I was trying to play around with his design, but when I changed him, he didn't quite feel the same. (Except in this particular thumnail I made him a bit stumpier than normal, He should be a bit taller.)
I can't think of a name!
Re-draw of a previous thumbnail but in a different style. Perhaps I should make the outlines a bit thicker??

Fantastic Voyage: Thumbnails

Here are my rough ideas of the environment so far. I'm finding it hard to draw the environments without being at least 80% sure of the story, but drawing out the environment actually helped the story development. Sigh..

Here we can see the mitochondria (top left), nucleus wall & pores, the RER and SER. I need to add some sort of pathway for the character to make it from the start to the goal (inside the nuclear walls)

Ribosomes and lysosymes. The lysosymes have  scanners search out for chemicals etc. (And the guy inside!)
I want to figure out what sort of matte paintings I can have in the background to frame everything. I need it to seem mechanical yet somehow organic. These thumbnails don't feel like environments because of the lack of background

Online Greenlight Review: Fantastic Voyage 7/03/13

Sorry it is so late :( I had problems with free software "open office". No matter what file I saved it as, the images had disappeared.

Fantastic Voyage Research + Ideas

I will describe the cell structure through an adventure story.
A blob creature/alien, who is young and new to the environment  is being sent by their trainer to go and retrieve chromosomes from the nucleus. The creature enters the cell through the cell pores, and tries to make it to the nucleus, but comes through problems (like the RER and golgi apparatus), making his travel difficult. He has a scanning machine which tells him about each new object he passes. When he finally makes it to the nucleus, and removes a chromosome, all lights etc shut down, and the creature is left in the dark, not knowing how to get out.

CGAA ACT: Speed Paint Challenge day 3

I forgot to use lots of layers on this one, so it won't be much help towards the project. Sorry :(
