Have you ever had one of those days?

What a fucking joke. I really do hate my job. I know everyone says that, but really, I REALLY hate my fucking job. Bane of my existance. Fucking Hypocritical cunts. CUNTS.

But anyway, I've got Dead Island to play. See you later.

Drawing1 - Syndicate

Okay, For my Syndicate project I want to start, I've done a quick drawing, mainly just showing the art style I'll be using. It's very cartoon style, but I think it'll work. It's just a rough draft, so I'll be redoing it and tidying it up as I go along. I'll have to tinker with the smoothing effects on Flash, and get reacquainted with the Graphics Tablet, too, as it's been quite a while. I'll also be doing some concept drawings for this, which I'll no doubt upload as I do them. Possibly even with a digitalised copy, too.
So, click here and see it!
Like I said, it's very rough around the edges, but I'll work on that as I alter settings and get more comfortable with the tablet. It's a top half body shot, showing some of the trenchcoat and the Agency issue Five-Seven pistol.

More on it as it develops!

Hold onto your hats!

I'm about to boot up Flash and attempt some drawing.
I'll show it when I'm done, or whatever.

A bit about whatever,

Going to start designing a website soon, then figuring out how you go on creating other blogs with Word Press, buying a domain name, uploading everything, making a name for myself. Awesome!
That's going to be either fun, or insanely tedious.
But anyway, I'm on the Battlefield 3 Beta, so I'm going to play some of that now.

Much love to my now three followers! Hey, Sarah!

Much love, peeps!

Another day, another follwer!

Okay, so I'm noticing another follwer! The ever so lovely Joanne! Thanks for following! I hope to be able to show you some animation soon!

On that note, I'm in the motions of getting a website domain name, making a website and what not. It'll give me another platform to showcase some stuff, link it into this, although I'm also looking at using Wordpress and running my own blog stuff from that. I'll sort it all out, though. Don't worry!

Things seem a bit better on the whole stress front. Keeping calm and stuff. So don't worry.

Keep cool, guys!

First Follower!

A big thanks to McVeigh for being my only follower! I've had a few profile views, which is great, too! I'm looking forward to having some animation for you guys at some point.
Currently, I'm having some shit at work and it's got me in no mood to animate. Really, I'm just pissed off to no end. Things just stack up and stack up and spill over, leading me to go fucking mental. That's not what I want to do. It'll cost me my job. But it'll happen if I keep getting pushed.


I don't want to leave this on a down note, so I'll just say this;
I look forward to my second follower :)

First Post!

So, this is my first post for Chris McEwan Animation.
So, as you can guess, I want to be an animator. I currently use Flash Pro CS5. It's been a long while since I really animated anything worth showing, and when I look back, what I had showed was not all that good. In recent years I've got lazy and hardly done anything. It's a shame, really. I had a
tremendous talent for creating animations for my jokes and spent practically all of my High School career animating. I even made a bit of money by doing things for a club in the town I lived.
Nowadays, I try to draw using my graphics tablet, but it never comes out right. I need to get back to it. I have so many ideas for things I want to create. From "Reasons To Be Miserable", a short series about the highs and lows of working in Retail, through the eyes and over-active imagination of a disgruntled employee, besotted with a co-worker (I've got episode outlines and the basis of Ep1 Script down). Then there's Dead Night, a zombie animation that has been through so many rewrites, it's not even resembling the first incarnation of it, then named Chitch Of The Dead. And more recently, I want to show my love for the game Syndicate, by Bullfrog, by creating a couple episodes based on it. For those of you who don't know the game, it's a Cyberpunk strategy game set in the future, where Syndicates run countries and are warring over global control. It's full of Augmentation and mission planning. Check it out.

I would love if this blog was discovered by some other budding animators, or some prolific doodlers (of which I also am), or, Hell, just ANYBODY!
I want to update this as often as I can, showing drawings, animations, anything I do, and recieve feedback and tips on how to further what I am doing.

Okay, to give you something to look at, the below picture is a sort of Self Portrait.It's a character from "Reasons To Be Miserable", who is based on myself. That's how I'd look if I was a cartoon character.

Thanks everyone!
I hope to see you again!
Maybe I'll have some actual animation, too...
