Daniel James Cox is a Sydney based artist who has worked as a concept and visual development artist for the film industry, including major productions with Weta Digital.
He has also been doing portraiture in a process in which he works digitally initially, then transfers to canvas to finish in oil.
When I last wrote about Cox, his professional work was not easily available on line, but he now has a professional site with a gallery of his film work. The site is apparently still in progress as none of the navigation links work except Contact, but the galley of images on the home page is functional.
You can also find his portraits and landscapes on this site, and posts about both, as well as other topics, on his blog.
Cox’s latest project is a short animated film he is producing called Cog and Turbine, about what game characters do on their time off. For this he has a funding campaign on Indiegogo, the page for which contains preliminary art, rough animatics, color keys and much more information than the project’s dedicated website.
