Hatch the Movie

This is the first animation I've done which I only started and finished earlier this year. Based on Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon, and my pet dog, this is a character study film on a dragon called Hatch. Hand drawn animation that has over 450 drawings done in fine liner ink wash. There's lots I can improve on, but I'll just make the next one better. This was done as my final major project on my foundation course at UCA Canterbury. I had a deadline so this was completed in 11 weeks and I ran out of time so I haven't fitted it with any sound.


  1. This is really cool! good job.

  2. I love this so much! It's awesome!

  3. Hi there,

    It's really important that first years a) follow the group blog as a matter of habit and b) follow the blogs of year 2 and year 3 students, because we know that, by doing so, year 1 students develop more quickly and get more organised. You might have done all this already, but I know there are those who have not, and I'm keen to get everyone up to speed.

    If you haven't done so already, you need to add these to your Blogger reading list, by clicking on the 'ADD' button on your dashboard, pasting in the URLs and then 'following pubically'.

    Group Blog (You must be following this/checking this feed daily at least).

  5. Hi Cat, well done on making a start with the alley scene. I notice you haven't blogged the previous two tutorials, can you get them up soonish so I can tick them off. Any problems then just shout.
