(So the Phoenix is out of the egg.... but the hunters are but seconds away!)

I am hoping to be able to post some pre-productions of my next upcoming animation soon. Details on next project will be released soon.

Scene 3 Complete! Now for the Danger!

Blob Corp. Studios has finished Scene 3 full of jumping, tumbles and discoveries. Moving onto Scene 4 where the main storyline takes a turn for the dangerous. I'm runnng short on unrevealing screenshorts so you will have to settle for a extreme shot background.

(An extreme far shot of a mountain that has been mined for silver)

Next update..... a big reveal to come!

Celebrating start of production for 'Cliff and The End of The Rainbow'

Blob Corp. Studios was thrilled to hear that 'The Daily Crumb' owner Nathan Viney was back to animating, from what we've uncovered it will be his most fantasy adventure based animation ever! Titled 'Cliff and The End of the Rainbow' we can only wonder in excitement what the storyline could be. In celebration for The Daily Crumb start production I made this:





(Couldn't fit the whole title in)

Blob's tired but no time to rest!

Although the main climax of the film is not reached until scene 4, scene 3 does have its own little one. I am now nearing the end of scene 3 where some difficult animating is to take place but shouldn't slow me down too much. Blob has finally reached the top of Phoenix Hill, but what will he do now? The Hunters fast approach:

(Far Shot: Blob takes the stairs as the Hunters ride vertically)

(Blob reaches the top of the Mountain and is exhausted)

College Project: Curiosity Killed The Alien

Teaming up with a few college friends we were assigned to do some sort of video with light, shapes and materials, we came up with an Alien idea. We all took the video home and edited how we wanted, this is my edited version:

Yes lame lighting and not great editing cos I was using WMM (Windows Movie Maker) so I wanted to finish the job quickly.

A post update about 'Blob and The Last Phoenix' will be coming soon!

The Beginning of Scene 3

Blob Corp. Studios has finished the tricky second scene of the animation and is now moving swiftly on to the third. This scene is fairly simple and shorter than scene 2 so will not take as long as previous scenes before. Here is a screenshot of scene 3:

(Blob has to bounce up a VERY large mountain! Much higher than any mountain in the land)

Hunters hot on 'Blobs' trail!

Animating the end of scene 2 which shoud be a lot easier than other parts of the scene already completed. A small amount of water animation to deal with and a little lip synch, and that will be that. Not much other news to update you on but here's a screenshot all the same:

(The hunters Ermot (right) and Razza (Left) riding Beetlemanders. Large like-Lizard beetles, used to carry cargo or pull wagons. Rarely used as creatures for riding)

Blob Corp. Studios Celebrates PIXAR's latest film 'UP'

Blob Corp. Studios was proud to be one of the first people in the city of Plymouth to watch the PIXAR film 'UP' in beautiful 3D. I am no reviewer but it was awesome and close to (if not) my favourite PIXAR film.

To celebrate it's brilliance 'Blob' decided to try and re-enact the floating house idea:




(However as Blobs chimmeny is to the far right of his house, it floated almost vertically)

Meanwhile the production of 'Blob and the last Phoenix' shuffles on whilst tackling college work, I am nearing the end of scene two:


(The Eel monster has a score to settle with 'Blob' and takes him for a ride!)

More updates and screenshots in the next few days, in the meantime go and watch UP if you have already watched it, go again!

Aquaticas Sea Monster makes a return!

The sea monster from 'Blob in Aquatica' has returned in 'Blob and The Last Phoenix' this time living within a lake. The creature still has the scar from the last time he met blob, will he be happy to see blob?
You can watch 'Blob in Aquatica' below (although it is Blob Corp. Studios REALLY early work)




Here's a screenshot of the sea monster in the newest animation, it's gone through some small changes:


More updates to come soon, still working through scene 2 and all its water animation which i am surprisingly enjoying!

A watery scene of hardwork!

Blob Corp. Studios now has the difficult task of animating a scene full of water, ripples and splashes. After being ill for a long weekend i feel i have wasted enough time laying about and am now jumping straight into the scene. I will update as i progress, in the meantime here is where the scene is at the moment:


( Blob ponders what waits in the lake)
