Blackrose fantasy


 Two days ago I had an amazing photoshoot with my friend's sister Cyndy. The results are really awesome, and I'm really pleased. My model fitted in perfectly into the dress I had, and the weather was on my side.

Of all the projects I've done this particular photography work is the most accurate depiction of my inner most favourite style. I enjoy fantasy themes, and some degree of gore. My goal was to come up with vampire like esthetics. The quarry where I took these images had some ducks nesting there or something, just the perfect place. I'm still scheduled to do another similar shoot with Cyndy and I'm sure to use more props and models in my next shoot.

I have no words to describe how wonderful it is tolook at these photographs with my name written all over them. The shoot produced more shots that these. The ones I've uploaded are just a fraction of what I got from the shoot. I just hope it gives you an idea of the standards to aspire to maintain and surpass..

The Last Devil's Bride

 Greetings, I've been working on a graphic novel called "The Last Devil's Bride" it's looking good so far. Ive just recently uploaded some of the sample pages. The silhouette style works really well and I won't reveal the storyline just yet.

So far all the artwork I've done for the Graphic Novel is "dark" and bloody. It's hard to create your own style in today's art industry but that's the angle I'm aiming for. Scars, silhouettes, stitches, blood and a heavy storyline.

Feel free to follow me on twitter @totally2d and visit my website or my Youtube account

I'll keep you all posted when the project is complete :) thank you for visiting my Blog.

Soul Sister

Hey guys!

I have been working on a lot of downloadable 2d templates for animators recently. Some of you are now familiar with my e-shop Totally2d Mastershop where Crazytalk Animator users can download some templates. Even if you're not a 2d animator/ Crazytalk user feel free to check out the e-shop and just see what Totally2d has to offer.

As of now I'm keen to launch a new set of character designs for different softwarecompanies. I'm designing a few new works like Soul Sister below:

 The style you see in my Soul Sister above can be found through out my animations i.e Salad chick, Mbira Dzakondo and future projects still pending. It's becoming my own unique trade mark style, now it's going to be available for sale.

Have a splendid day!

Fantasy art

I drew this November last year, it was an illustration I did for one of those speed-drawings that you see on Youtube. However this particular piece was for my college's dvd extras, where viewers get to see my hand drawing this scorpion fairy stage by stage. Upto now I love the results, and the original work can be seen mounted on my college's notice board.

Elsa Kamsoda - FUTURE

The album launch is just around the corner. I don't have dates but I'll keep you all posted when it's out. Elsa's new album as some of you know by now is called FUTURE and I did a photo-shoot with her a few weeks ago. Now here are the poster designs!

The album cover is also complete now and the print runs have already started. I'll post that later on when it's ready. If you look at the two posters you'll get a feel of how Elsa's image will be like in all her upcoming work.

I'm trying to capture a Zimbabwean feel in the work I'm ding for her a nd the Zimababwean flag colours play a big role in my achieving that.

It's funny how far the projects have all come i.e the animated poem we made lats year, video shoots, and now a new album is upon us.

Enjoy your day!

2d animation template

The past few days I was designing a Album sleeve for Elsa Kamsoda, and that went really well. The printing is being done as I write this and I'm so eager and excited to see the final product :)

I'm now working on some new character designs to upload into my e-shop. The "Death Machine" above is one of the many designs I'm currently working on. The bot has a War Angel feel to it, and I think it will make a great addition to all my e-shop customers' galleries. More information is coming soon!

Behind the scenes - FUTURE (Elsa Kamsoda)

These are some behind the scenes photographs from a shoot I did yesterday with Elsa Kamsoda, and Logunn. All the final images we took will be used as album artwork for Elsa's upcoming album called "FUTURE". I really enjoyed the shoot, and above you see me applying some last minute face art on Elsa.
