Beware the Draguck by Luke-the-F0x Beware the Draguck by Luke-the-F0x
This is something I was experimenting at College today for my final major project. I'm doing an animation that is set in a bayeux tapestry world with a cut-out animation style simmilar to that of Noggin the Nog & the animations of Terry Gilliam. I cant reveal the plot but i can show you one of its characters which is a 'Draguck', a pretty terrifying monster.

I made this image using a fabric texture which has been inked over and trodden on to look old, worn and dirty and then used photoshop opacity and filters to make the image 'part' of the tapestry.

So i hope you like it and it may inspire me to make tapestry images in the future.

Hope the dragon won't disapear after the animator get's a random heart attack.

i'm glad u like this pic mate.
In the animation, the draguck is defeated by falling off the edge of the tapestry.

uh, not really, but in the hybrid sense it would. I think i forgot to mention that it was inspired by the monster in Monty Python & the Holy Grail.

I am loving that Tapestry Luke. I can even see the foot-print of when you did the effects on it. lol

I hope you do well and get the Honors that you want Luke.

yeah, this is my last leg of my course, it would be good to pass with a good grade and graduate to get into the career i wanted to do.

foot-print? well i did tread on it a bit to make it look worn and dirty.

y'know i am in the mood to go gaming, i know its soon, but i really dont mind, is next wednesday ok? I need to be back at 3 though.

Sounds great how you're presenting your animation in!.

The real question is, you sure you sussed your story and characters?
