Concept-art of an owl-man. He represents a shaman/summon deity that grants knowledge at a deadly cost. For an experimental film ! I'm quite happy at how he turned out ! Something different coming from me for a change xD I had a lot of fun with this !! I really want to paint more often. It's fun when you have no idea what you're doing but you still do it anyway just because what the hell. Photoshop and Mischief.

The Air Sprite ! My favorite so far ! I wanted to keep away from the regular colour scheme air creatures usually have (blues, grays, etc) and decided to use green/yellow instead, like the FFXIV Wind Sprites. I couldn't keep away from the white as a base, since he has a kinda feathery look, but I don't mind. Turned out quite good to me ! :D I wasn't going to give him any transparency, since I wasn't sure... but in the end I tried it and I decided to keep some transparency around some of the edges. No regrets ! Photoshop. 2013.

FOR FULL DESCRIPTION, PLEASE SEE IT ON VIMEO !! The story is a sequel to a tale I wrote for the Creative Writting class I had at uni a few years back. After writting the sequel, I decided to do more with it and after listening to the first version of the song used for this (composed and performed by my boyfriend, Tiago Ferreira), I knew exactly how I wanted to tell this story. All illustrations are handpainted in watercolour and later edited in Photoshop. The "animatic" was then edited in Premiere. Just a little something I wanted to try. I am quite pleased with it, despite some errors and things that might've been better. 2013.

My MA animation short based on the poem " O Melro" by the portuguese poet Guerra Junqueiro. Animated by hand, composed in Toon Boom Studio, edited on Adobe Premiere. All the backgrounds are hand-painted in watercolours while the characters are digitally painted on Corel Painter X. Music by the amazing Lorenz Ploch ! Also, the format is weird. I tried, but it was not cooperating. 2012.

The sound was taken from this video: youtube.com/watch?v=WgwboxatZPw This animation was a test to see if I could make a short in a week. I had a few minor setbacks that made me take two more days than intended, but I am very happy with the result still. Please have in mind this was only an exercise. All the rights to the music, narration and whatnot belong to whoever made them in the original video. I only did the animation synchronized with it. Hand-drawn, scanned, coloured on Photoshop, animated on Toom Boom and edited on Premiere. 2012.
