Hellooooooo world,

I haven't updated in a while, I'm not sure which direction to take this blog at this point after the addition of my website, www.keriduckworth.com. I've been considering creating a blog there strictly for artwork and turning this one into a blog filled with inspiring photography, illustrations, animations, designs, and my own life happenings. Perhaps it will be a blend of both. For now, I will leave you with some eye candy. (No really, this first one has candy in it, yay!)

This piece was done as a panoramic for my "Game & Animation Art" class. USI rarely, if ever, offers classes like this, so I was BEYOND ecstatic. I was using Flash essentially for the first time. This scene drew inspiration from one of my all time favorite cartoons in the world, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack by Thurop Van Orman. (Go on, google him, he's got a magnificent beard.)

This was our first lip sync, although I won't post the full animation here just yet. Here we see a crab with a man arm. Natural selection has skipped over him, and he is not the happiest crustacean.

This is a still from my final animation. I will try to post the entire thing here soon, but for now, feast your eyes upon the still. I would like to eventually go back and work on this animation a bit, adding in more detail and refining some of the movements, as they still need some work.

So there you have it! I will continue to update with more artwork until I am caught up to my current projects. On an unrelated note, you should check out the following link if you are into photography or wolves. The article features a little bit about the photographer, Shlomi Nissim, and her take on Little Red Riding Hood.



New Website

A lot has gone on between my latest update and now. I've created my own portfolio website (with the help of my ever-patient and loving boyfriend, Drew), gone through an entire semester of school, showed a piece in the Spring Student Show at USI, hmm.. I know that I'm forgetting something. I'm quite proud of the stuff I created in Figure Drawing II, and I've completed a couple of animations on top of that. Now it is summer, and I'm trying to relax a bit and get focused on some fun projects of my own. I'd really like to take commissions but we will see. Should be starting up work soon, too. In addition, last weekend I photographed my brother, sis-in-law, and my two nieces. We had a lot of fun! Until I get a chance to update with some artwork, you should probably check out my new website.... *WINK WINK, NUDGE NUDGE*


Spring Semester 2010

Hello again! Last semester flew by... I didn't even get a chance to update this thing! This semester I am taking lots of fun classes: Game & Animation Graphics, Figure Drawing II, SP Illustration and Contemporary Art. It should be tons-o-fun. I plan on doing a mass post of some things I created last semester, and periodically throw in some older stuff here and there while I keep a constant update on what I'm currently doing.

In the mean time, here is a little soot sprite inspired by Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away".
