Animation: week 2

Here are the sets we have created and are using 

A swampy jungle Island and a boat of adventurer’s 


Animation: Week 1

The first lesson we were introduced to story boarding. We wrote a script and and drew story boards. (I do not know how to write a script)

The script- The golden seeded Tree

  • Golden seeds in tree
  • Croc circles/protects tree and therefore gold
  • Adventurers spot the golden seeds
  • Boat drives towards tree
  • Croc attacks the boat and motor
  • Spear girl hops from boat to croc to tree
  • knife guy jumps on croc, attacking it
  • Fight/distraction occurs
  • Man dies in noble sacrafice
  • Spear girl is sad

Moral of the story – Greed Kills

Here is my story boards

Group Project

For the Group paper project we struggle initially with coming up with a good idea with the concept of space. Initially we were going to make a solar system but that was quickly shot down and we were told it was to literal. We then brainstormed the idea of making a rocket. This rocket would be adorned with all of our cultures, as we were a very diverse group. These patterns and adornments would be an homage to our ancestors mighty vessels with the designs and decorations covering them.


William Bardebes, who sat in on our class for the day then gave us a piece of advice that really stuck with me.

“A Bow suggests an Arrow, an Arrow suggest a Bow.”

So with this great advice on board we then moved onto the idea of the rocket scaffolding which we would create, playing into space from a different perspective of a void or space being left behind. We then did a quick sketch of what each of us envisioned as the final concept. Lelua’s image (1st picture) depicts a traditional launch pad with scaffolding on each side. Tristan’s image (2nd picture) however depicts the storage facility that holds the rocket which was a new point of view and idea we all liked. A quick google search of rocket storage facilities led me to this beautiful image (3rd picture) of a complex storage facility from NASA. Tristan’s idea as well, the image and talks with the lecturers helped to create our final idea of making a scaffold or mold of what represents us and/or our culture (4th picture).rocket sketch 1rocket sketch 2

So we started work on our molds and boxes. First I created a stencil in Illustrator.Kiwi cut out

I then glued in to six different pieces of cardboard to cut out each of the layers.DSC_0177

Once each layer had been cut out I glued them together created a box around the scarp layers behind to hide them. I spray painted the whole thing white as well as do a few touch ups here and there.DSC_0178

This is the final product of the kiwi. i think it looks pretty good. The only part that isn’t great are the corners which i tried to fix many times but couldn’t improve on them further.

Individual paper project

I created a earth collashe  using coloured card and cardboard. The purpose of this is to be part of an educational poster/graphic in soon to be the height of space exploration as we leave for mars in the near future. So as focus and interest is set upon the stars a friendly and understandable information source has to be available for the masses to understand and get behind.

My research was done threw examples on pinterest board – Paper Board

The earth is a prototype and example of what the other planets would look like.

These are the drawings for the paper project.

This is the 1st of the perspective drawings being 1 point perspective

This is the second Drawing which is 2 point perspective.drawing A1

This is 3 point pespectivedrawing A6

The next three images are my attempts of using atmospheric perspectivedrawing A3drawing A4drawing A2

The next six images are all based on the previous drawings however using base materials of neutral tones such as browns and grays.

The goal for these two images was to use lighter and darker shades than the base material.

These images were done on the Found Field.drawing B5drawing B6

In these images we were instructed to use mix media so on the first image i used pastels and the second I added a colour to highlight the centre.drawing B4drawing B2

This images was linked to scale. This picture is 1m tall and 45cm wide. I drew the pot the same size in this image as i did the other previous images to illustrate that scale.Large scale drawing



Collections- Doctor Who


This essay talks about my exhibition collection about Doctor who and my interaction with the franchise

Artist label

Liam Tanner

Doctor Who, 2011


Dimensions Variable


I started watching doctor who in 2011 at the height of Matt Smith’s run as the Doctor and was instantly invested in the characters and franchise. I began buying the merchandise shortly after starting the show and I haven’t stopped since. This collection is important to me because they hold the memories of my childhood.
