Creature Animation Demo reel

Eight months ago, I enrolled in a 3-month online Creature Animation Course, and learned some techniques on how to animate quadrupeds. I did it full-time, because I didn't think I'll be able to balance work and learning this simultaneously without affecting both my professional work and my health negatively.  It was really intense, yet fun. In the end, I'm happy with the what I have done.

Here's the result.  Enjoy!

Learning Animal Drawing and Digital Painting

Drawing and painting animals have always been something I wanted to learn and do well.  I've collected a lot of animal drawing books and digital painting tutorials over the years, but never really had the time to really pause and learn  from them.  As a professional animator, it's always been a real struggle for me to find the time and energy to pursue this. 

Over a year ago, I finally decided to take some time-off from being an animator, and just give myself a chance to do this.  There's still a lot of fundamentals I need to learn to get me to where I want to be artistically, but I'm hopeful that I'll get there, slowly but surely.

Below are some of the work I've done.  (Click to enlarge)
