Chuck Jones, Drawings and Requests

I wanted to do this a celebration of one of my favourite directors, Chuck Jones. Like when Chuck Jones took over the Tom and Jerry unit I always wondered what it would be like if Chuck Jones took his hand to the Disney Crew. Unfortunately, we will never know. Rest in peace Chuck Jones.


I have redesigned my scarecrow character. Through no fault of my own, he ended up looking a bit like Earthworm Jim, so I changed him.




My entry to DAC Rivals Challenge.


More Requests.

My day running at Passion

Ironically you do a lot of running as a runner. The people at passion were nice. It was only one day but I got paid.

Runners job at Passion PIctures and Animation Station Storyboard Reels

Firstly some good news. I have got a trial day as a runner at Passion Pictures this Wednesday. Hopefully this will lead to something. I'm quite nervous.

Secondly my pal Simon has edited my storyboards for the first three episodes of Animation Station. There is no sound but it should give you a general idea. We are of course re-writing some of these. No idea is perfect.

I was going to put them up here but they are mp4 files and they didn't seem to work right when I uploaded them.

I converted it into a quicktime file.

Does anyone remember ages ago I was doing work on the logo for Trisori Limited. Well it went nowhere. But I did something for it so I used it to practice in flash. This is strictly a practice walk cycle. I know I made it wrong in flash, but practice makes perfect right.

New Showreel




Hi. Firstly I would like to thank David Fortier, Dave Pruiksma, Will Finn and the many kind members of the 11 second club for their advice on my previous reel. Due to their suggestions I have decided to gut my previous reel and make this new one up. All the work featured on this reel can be seen in full at my website www.daryl-rhystaylor.co.uk.

The contents of this reel are as follows
1. My entry into the 11 second club May competition.
2. 2 clips from my student film 'Insane Science Seeking with the Professor'.

I eventually hope to replace the clips of my student film with new flash animations.

Seeing the redesigns for the new Looney Tunes show done by Jessica Borutski http://jessicaborutski.blogspot.com/ and I was inspired to do some of my own. First here is my take on the Looney Tunes.

Secondly here is my take on some other characters.
