Hello there person! Welcome to my page. Full of bits and stuff as well as other bits and stuff.

Animation is my main thing, but I also partake in some good ol' sketching/painting of the digital kind when the urge takes me.

I'm based in Berlin for the moment. We'll see how long that lasts...

Like a lot of people on DA, I've been obsessing over Cuphead. Well I haven't actually played it but that animation is just soooo good! The second part of the final boss I found particularly gorgeous Love 

Since I'd wanted to replace my generic emoji-ish profile picture for a long time I figured I'd go for broke with an animated one! Something in a loose approximation of the style Cuphead emulates.

After some creative doodling and a quick caricature of myself I settled on the toothy, pineapple haired fellow at the bottom. It's kind of a mix between the style I was aiming for and a strange caricature of myself, and although it doesn't have much of a 30's vibe right now the animation is going to have that musical hop to it that's so distinctive to those old toons.

Happy animating~

I wanted to do a goofy, tiny animation while I was wasting away on a promo stand at London Bridge station last year. Finally came back to finish it after about 3 months, for completion's sake.

On a side note the chalkboard aesthetic is such a brilliantly lazy cop-out. Linework looks like garbage? It's chalk, that's why. Definitely an artistic choice and not uninspired laziness...

Made using Krita!
My Portfolio Site: PSYSkip

After many months of eating frozen pizza and resisting the existential dread inherent to modern life, it is time to officially present:

I started making this around June stemming from the desire to have a portfolio/blog site that was entirely my own. Almost half a year later and yes, I have that... more or less. There is still an ongoing list of things that need implementing and broken code that needs fixing, but it can wait for now. A website needs content after all, so it's time to get back into the animation game...

Oh, and if you have the time then have a look at the site on desktop and mobile and tell me what you think (the site adapts to differently sized devices). How it looks, how intuitive it is to use, if there's any errors; all feedback is much appreciated!

lol..... in the next days i will be having access checks for a animation school....there will be some flour sack animation .
so as i was on your site and was looking through your flour sack animations to get some understanding of the physics... i randomly saw that u are based in german- berlin, guess what,  me 2 XD

Haha really? I knew you were in Germany, but had no idea that you were in Berlin :P

Yeah I've been here since the end of last year, but I only changed that description recently. Gonna be working at an English speaking camp in Freusberg for a few weeks, which is a good gig when your German is too awful to get a normal job (hehe)

What animation school is it, btw?
WillyMutuku Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2017
sounds nice, for a eond i thought u were german ...but i remember u from being from somewhere else , where you from ? 
its the film university babelsberg in potsdam . 
PSYSpace Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2017   Filmographer
I'm from Australia, as much as I'd prefer to be born within the EU instead :/

Sounds cool though. I miss the excitement of uni a bit, and I think now that I would have been better off if I'd waited before doing a degree or the like.

Hope you got in, by the way. And if you did then best of luck with the studies Thumbs Up
