Blackadder The Third Play

I allowed the Grantham Dramatic Society to use my Blackadder illustrations for their recent production of Curtis & Elton's Blackadder The Third.  I enjoyed doing these for Mustard magazine way back when and so it was nice to see them get another airing.

Rotoscoping Practice


In order to teach the practicalities of larger scale animation productions, my Level 1 class have been doing a collaborative rotoscoping mini-project, where they've been animating a 2-second snippet from a longer scene from Return Of The Jedi.  When they're done I'll edit all the snippets back together to make a short animated film.  It's a bit of gamble, as this level of student can be fairly unreliable, so I'm hoping it will encourage them to pull together as a team.

I joined in myself very late in game, so here's my rough-and-ready contribution - a fairly dull shot of Luke looking pensive, post-battle.  The process can be a bit laborious but I've already figured out ways to improve and streamline my working methods, and so have got to thinking about doing a little project of my own.
