Batman Motion-Capture Drawing

This is a quick drawing of Batman I did ages ago. I was in Berlin at the time working for Omgraphix on a documentary about the French comic artist Moebius and we were trying out various motion-capture techniques. It became an element we used numerous times in the film. In the end we were lucky enough to be able to use animated drawings by comic legends like Moebius, Mike Mignola, Jim Lee and Enki Bilal.

This is a piece of private work - a belated wedding present for my friends Matt and Claudia McIntosh-Bowman.

Some old paintings...

...and here are a few more old paintings I did on that same trip to Berlin, Bavaria, Slovenia and NYC (04-06). Some of them are terrible photos, but you get the idea.

Old Bits and Pieces

Here are just a few things - sketchbook pages, life drawings and paintings - that were done over the last 5 years or so, when I was still using mainly natural media. The "Portrait of the Xanthe in a Rabbit Fur Coat" was painted in Australia, as part of my entry for the Alice Bale Traveling Scholarship. The rest were done during my last long stint overseas in Berlin (04-06).

Nudes quick one from life, one drawn using reference.

This is a quick, rough pencil/photoshop sketch I did for for an animation that unfortunately didn't go ahead. It's a shame really...

Here's a portrait study from a Julian Ashton's life drawing session. It took around an hour and a half.
