This week I enjoyed a trip to Bristol Zoo Gardens with some of my housemates. We had a fantastic time and, having not been since I was very small, I got rather nostalgic! There have been some new additions since I was last there as well, including gorillas and hippos.
Aptly, for those of you who don't know, the correct collective noun for flamingos is a 'flamboyance'. This little fact makes me much happier than it probably should! I find that flamingos are really quite lovely to draw. I also liked this Komodo dragon. Normally when you see lizards in zoos, they quite happily lie there, not doing very much, but this guy was very active. This both works for and against the artist; there are some great poses, but you only have a short amount of time to get them drawn!

More sharing of work from second year this week. I helped out a coursemate, Steph, one of the stop-motion animators, with a little piece of Flash animation for her film. The premise was that Larry, a Sasquach photographer/enthusiast, has just sporrted a giant footprint in the ground. I animated a little thought bubble to show what he's thinking.
Just a little piece of keyframe animation but it does the job! Go check out Steph's blog to see the making of her gorgeous puppets and all the other stuff relating to her film.
