Splashy Splash Splash

The Atlas Resort is a haven like no other; Michelin star food, unpolluted seas, luxury beds.

Even the sharks are friendly. Relatively speaking.

Look forward to seeing your work.

The winner of Mays "Pets"Theme went out to Estrela Lourenco. For her beautiful drawing. Well done Estrela. There were so many fantastic submissions it is so hard to pick the winner! Well done again to everyone who took the time to submit. Stay tuned for the next installment.

The Fang'd One

Very loosely drawn from childhood experience, when a Marrakech salesman put a snake around my neck. This could do with more snakes, but some people have work in the morning :/

All The Good Bois

Here's a bunch of good boi's for this months Pet theme! 

Dead Bird Study

Posting this on behalf of Fiona Hamilton. Always good to receive a traditional piece.


This is my first piece of artwork in a very, very long time, so it's really nice to be posting something.

In a bleak concrete environment a man has become so engrossed in his social media, so divorced from reality, that he has failed to notice the passing of his canine companion some time ago.

Hey guys! This is my entry for this month! It's me as an Alicorn Princess LOL

Bjorni-boo the Dwarf suffers from gigantism. At the tender age of ten he towers over the average human, and might be the tallest dwarf in history.

Cruisin' in the Oasis

So this is me getting about in the Oasis. It's supposed to be a place where all Avatars can come to muck around and do what they want hence all that stuff going on in the background. Don't believe all those movies where heroes travel at high speeds without a single hair out of place.

The quantum consideration of the carrot

NEW THEME-April 2018 "Your Avatar"

Moving swiftly on to April....

There's a new film just out called Ready Player One (I've not seen it yet but have heard pretty good things about it). Here's the link to the trailer

So this months theme is.... "Your Avatar"
We want you to design your own avatar for visiting the 'Oasis' (like in the trailer). This can be characters that exist already, ones that you want to design yourself or even a mix of the two. 

How would you get around as well (the guy in the film uses the car from 'Back to the Future') you could also create some transport if you wanted, again using pre-existing designs, your own or a mix. Let your mind run riot.

We look forward to seeing some more really exciting entries.

The Deadline for this will be Tuesday the 8th of May

Happy geeking!!

'If You're Out There'

This is a little looping animation I made in Harmony and comped in After Effects. I wanted to try a full rotation on something in Harmony, it's mad jittery, but it was fun all the same. The concept comes from a short film idea I've been working on called 'Time is a Gift' that I haven't really spent enough time working on, of course, of course.

Hope you guys like it anyway (Y)
