Nothing to show today, but...

I did work on some Flash. Been a bit busy today, though, so nothing that really warrants a showing. Keep it locked on here, though. I'll have something soon.
So, why not check out some of my old stuff in the post previous?
Cool, guys and gals!

Old Flash

Had a look online for some of my old stuff, and this is what I've come up with: (Click names to open link)
Seabat1: A loop featuring a Seagull flying around to Black - Wonderful Life
Seabat2: Another loop featuring a Seagull flying to the High Octane chords of Muse - Nights Of Cydonia
Seabat3: The last in the trilogy where the Seagull has emerged victorious to the enjoyable sound of Cure - In Between Days

Resident Evil: The Zombie's Thoughts: A look at the original Resident Evil game, where it is made much more difficult with the Chris Redfield Character, which I joked as the zombies were wearing Kevlar. WARNING! Strong Language.
LinkStarsky And Hutch - Alt Ending: An alternate ending, in which... Well, just watch.
Noel Edmonds - Body Harvester: Noel Edmonds, once a mild-mannered TV host, now a psychopathic body harvester. Noel is attempting to buy a TV from his local Comet.
Doctor Eh?!
: A very early animation of mine, in which Daleks gain employment in the Education system. Be warned, the drawings of humans are terrible and the intro is long.
Resident Evil - Crank Game: A jack in the box game I made a few years back. If you are familiar with the Resident Evil games, you'll know the Hex and Square cranks had some odd uses. I think this is the oddest.
Barresdale1: The film that launched Alnwick North.

Me on Facebook.

Okay, I got rid of my (Anti) Social Facebook profile and created a new one, specifically for animation. If you've got to this blog, there's a good chance you've already been on that page, but for those of you who haven't, it's here!
Hope to see you all there!
My best,

Getting back into Flash

Aww, man, this is great! I've not been this excited to do Flash in a long time! At work, all I think about is Flash. I get home and the PC is straight on, Flash being opened and I graft away at it. I've been looking at my last upload, and it's looking like the best thing I've made yet! And it's only a few seconds long!
I think this blog has been exactly what I've needed to get myself sorted out.

Take it easy, guys and gals!

Starting Syndicate

Hey, guys! Been working on some Flash for you!
I've got a load screen at the start, so when it loads, it will automatically start to play.


It's only the start, but I thought I'd show you a sneak peek at what is to come! Hope you all enjoy!

Intro Reworked

I've fixed some stuff on the intro, the sun reflection, the sound loading

So, at work today, I managed (again) to turn the topic of conversation to Seagulls. Damn, I love them. Then I got an idea for an intro for Chris McEwan Animation.
So here it is!
The CMA Intro!

Okay, so my hatred of Illustrator has been documented here, so I'm going to show you some more Flash Tests. Here, I'm working on the character style. It's a revised version from my previous upload (As shown HERE) and documents progression as to how I've got to my final choices.
So here it is. Top pair are the rejected drawings. I found them to be too cartoon-like, fat faces, big hair, not what I'm going for. But the face shaping changes from the Top Right, to the Top Left (The order I drew them). This led to a rounder shape, thinning on the chin, as would a real person's face. I gave the agent short hair, and in the Bottom Right, gave him a goatee, to see how he'd look with it. I like both, so I don't know which to go with... Help?
Leave comments to let me know, or if you see me in person, I'll be pestering you give me your opinion.

Next, I'll be drawing the EuroCorp uniform, essentially just a Trenchcoat, but I'll be putting the black combats and boots on them, just to give them a rounded off uniform. From there, I think I'll start the Animation process. Do a scene, see how it goes.

Keep checking back, guys and gals!



I fucking HATE Illustrator. It just makes no sense at all. Useless fucking thing. It's got nothing on Flash. Nothing at all. Urgh... I could do with a zombie apocalypse right about now...
My best, Chris


Okay, it's been a while, but stuff's been coming up. I've found the time to do a concept drawing of a character, though. He's quite African in dress, so I'm thinking of having him as a rival Syndicate member from the "hero" Syndicate as it were, the EuroCorps.
I hope you enjoy it! Please leave feedback!
The feet look dodgey, and there's a very poor attempt at perspective on it

I'm going to put it into Illustrator and do a digital drawing of it. If it works out, I'll post it on here.

Cheers! Enjoy the picture, and sorry for the poor quality. I don't own a scanner, so had to use my phone.

Dudes and lady dudes!

Just got a delivery there, containing some lovely American foodsyuffs. Twinkies amd Chocolate Lucky Charms. Awesome.

So, I'm going to hit some more Dead Island now. Been planning some Syndicate stuff, which I'll be working on tomorrow, along with going for a run, drawing, animating (hopefully, if the drawing goes well) so I may just be showing an animation test! Exciting!

Much love!
