Colouring Gary's living room

This is the first rough sketch that I created for the living room shot.

This image is close to the final design that I will use. As you can see, the basics of the shot have remained the same as in the rough sketch. The only improvements I hope to make are in the colours. I admit choosing colours isn't my strong point, and hope to get helpful criticism from others to improve it.

EDIT: This is the final design that I chose to use for the living room. The main changes were with the colours, the thickness of certain lines and getting rid of the black outlines, which I think has improved the look of the background completely. I also redid the outlines of the rug to give it a more natural look.

"Creative Animation" pieces from university

Both of these pieces were submitted as part of the first assessment for the “Creative Animation” module. They were part of a group project in which Jon Campbell and I were in charge of animation.

Character Animation: Dream a Dream

This animation was created for a "Character Animation" module in my final year at The University of the West of Scotland.

The main character, Larry, is confronted by his life guide, a small blue creature who guides a person through their life. He has had enough of Larry's laziness and sees no other option but to confront Larry in his dreams..

Animatic: Scene One

This is a rough animatic for the first scene of "Dog Daze." There are a number of little parts that will probably be timed better for the final animation and the sound effects will be revised. However, I will collect opinions first in order to find out what others think of what has been done so far.

Colouring Gary's house

These are the colours that I have chosen for the establishing shot of "Grumpy Gary's" house. I am not great at deciding on which colours to use for backgrounds and I will probably make several changes before I am completely satisfied.

EDIT: This is the final look that I have given to the establishing shot.
