Hybrid experiment 02 - 'Black'
Black has more dexterous hands then Gold, and is much faster, but this means he is more prone to dislocation of the limbs. He has been thought to be capable of speech, but has yet to prove it through well formed sentences. He has a bad temper that means he must be constantly chained: any chance given and Black makes a break for escape.
This sketch will be refined to be a completed picture later on,( sorry about the limited quality scan). He is part of my 'experiment' concepts.
Hybrid experiment 01 - 'Gold'
Due to his complex DNA, this hybrid suffers from arthritis and a bad back. Gold is unable to use his hands due to their size, but he is intelligent and is capable of speech. He's also usually very well behaved for his captors, as he is sure they know whats best for him.

Having become an official Animation Graduate 'Purge' was premiered at the BFI, and I have never been more proud. It was a long learning journey but was worth the strength, and my advice would be to undergraduate animators to push forwards, especially when te going gets tough. And now that my film is finished, I can upload screenshots of the final cut!
'Purge' follows a dog who can see Death coming for her owner and who then attempts to save him. The film features CG and hand drawn animation and was coloured in toonboom.
The layouts are not my work, but the animation in the screen shots shown, as well as the line clean up, is my own. A great big thanks to all of the layout artists who helped make Purge possible. You can see some animation in progress in my vimeo account - https://vimeo.com/home/myvideos.
I can't show the full film for another 18 months as my University owns the rights, but I am allowed to share these pictures. It was hard work but it was worth it!
