7 Ace people will be getting original DMCropley prints as a big thank you for helping out with our wedding at the weekend. Here’s some photos of the Fine Art Christmas present wrapping at Spike Print tonight… :D Each one is an un-editioned artists proof so they’re properly unique, lets hope they go down well…

4Mations Skull Kittens

Heh heh, I was just digging through some old files to update the Evansfinch blog and I came across these animated shorts I created in 2008 for 4Mations.tv through Team Rubber and Aardman Digital. Thought I’d pop them up for your viewing pleasure :D Also found out that it was @JamFactory that designed the kittehs… the things you learn on the interpipes! Good times.

Dave Cropley Animation Showreel 2008

I’ve just recently updated all of my films to Hi-res versions on the youtubes so I thought I’d post up my last showreel from when I was a freelance flash animator as fishboyfilms in early 2008. I wanted to do something a little different so I edited AC/DC’s ‘back in black’ down to a minute and a half and cut a rock video! Still raises a smile every time I watch it – good times :D

Short Flash Animation test – Tits!

I’ve just been uploading HD versions of my films to my youtube channel and I chanced across this short I’d been working on a few years ago to test out my ‘squidgy blobs’ so I thought I’d post it up. Its early work in progress, but may be interesting to see how I put together a simple flash animation. Its a bit difficult to work out whats going on as I turned off the animatic layer to make it less distracting, but the gag is – bird tries to pull out peanut from feeder, eventually gets one, tosses it into the air but the entire contents of the feeder spill out into its awaiting mouth. Hilarity ensues.

“Wot U Lookin At” Limited Edition Original Inking and Macro Photography

Just finished another very limited edition of 5 original inkings (and one Artists proof for me). Bought some 100cm x 70cm canvasses the other day and this is a good candidate to try out going big some time soon. This will probably be the last thing I post for the next few weeks, but I’m sure I’ll be champing at the bit to carry on as soon as I’m back from getting married and galavanting around tropical islands! Until then…

Drypoint Etching Macro Photography

Now the sun is shining I decided to take advantage of the natural light and take some photos of some of my most successful prints. I’ve also started work on another edition of original inkings which I will post next week. Its getting very close to my wedding now so I won’t be posting much for the next month or so. I’ve very much caught the art bug again and it doesn’t look like its going to go away this time.
