above: Shots I was responsible for animating and comping
Mr X. 2015.
MPC contacted me to work on some shots for a piece they were working on which revolved the figure of a controversial tattoo artist called Duncan X. When I arrived at MPC, artists had skilfully painted out all of Duncan's tattoos and my job was to add them back in, bit by bit, as well as animating them. The effect is pleasingly creepy. I also comped inky secretions from the arms and chest, as well as ink spilling onto the table Duncan sits at as he speaks (including convincing reflections).
- After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator.
Duncan X was selected for Vimeo Staff Picks.
Above is a compilation of shots I was responsible for (except for snake animation & composition); below, the full movie.
