Hi, I’m Eilis! I am a 2D generalist with a keen passion for building worlds and characters, and an interest for anything horror and fantasy themed. The main focus of my work is character design, but I have been developing my skills in 2D character animation throughout this year. I hope to show off these skills in my upcoming short film “Call of the Water Horse”. After graduation, I aim to build my portfolio with more freelance and studio projects, further expanding my skills in 2D animation.
Two siblings, Meghan and Finneghan, wander to the beach on the rugged coast of Scotland to search for sea creatures. But what they discover is far more alluring and frightening—the Water Horse. This beautiful creature has a presence that no-one can run away from.
Call of the Water Horse is based on and inspired by the Scottish/Celtic myth, the Kelpie, a creature that can take on many forms to lure in its victims into the depths of the ocean. It was animated in Clip Studio Paint, with visual effects and composition in After Effects.
