* Merry Christmas *

I'm not doing paper cards this year so have put together my Christmas greetings in the form of an ecard. Phillipe has switched from his usual flower to something a little more festive. :)

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all enjoy the holiday season!

My first paper-cut... a long time. Nice and simple little birdy.

Drawn to Life

So I got this new game for my DS Drawn to Life which I thought would be fun because you can draw all your own characters and props etc... and it turns out that it is fun!! ^-^ I have been addicted to this game since I got it! I like it so much I had to share it! So I got to create my little character and then run around collecting coins... kinda feels Mario-ish but I like that kinda thing. :)
Then you have the option to create three different characters which you can change throughout the game, I guess this is so the drawing and creating stuff doesn't get too old. So I drew my little Phillipe and even though he doesn't have tail I've still had loads of fun playing around with him battling cute monsters and saving villagers! hurrah!

It's kind of a simple game but the fact I just made my own character and was instantly playing with it makes it great. It's a nice way to spend my free time playing games with something I made. Which reminds me I really need to get my hands on Little Big Planet... that will be my next time filler :)

'Little Leap Forward' - Design Ideas #1

I have been busy the last couple of weeks so haven't had a chance to work on this project until today. I am currently trying to get the design of the bird right and then plan to animate a short wing flap cycle.

New Bird Design based on the puppet which will be used in the production.
