Season's Greetings

Here's a fun little collaboration Jess and I did a day or two ago, with the final result at the top and our original sketch at the bottom. Happy Holidays everyone!

Lace Sketch

Think I'll clean up and ink this one and see it to full completion later tonight or tomorrow evening, but I'm in conflict whether it's good enough to do so or not. There are some weird things going on, but I don't think the weird things are all too blaring, or even matter. I'm afraid of re-drawing it and losing some of the life (as I'll already lose some in the inking process). Soooooooo we shall see.

House Sitting

Currently, my friend Jess and I find ourselves back in good 'ol Savannah, GA... but without school. We're house sitting for someone (the sweet dog we're looking after drawn above). I can tell you, the experience is amazing. Jess and I get up around 7:30 AM, have a quaint breakfast, go outside to admire a beautiful oceanic view and walk the dog, and come back inside to work until 6 PM (with a nice break for lunch in there, too, of course!). After 6 is whatever-the-heck-you-want-to-do-but-it-shouldn't-be-more-work time.

It's been an enlightening experience trying to work to a more traditional schedule. A more structured, healthy routine and a change of scenery in combination with a lack of internet on the work machines means so much more productivity in the day, and I'm happy to report a decent amount of progress on my work.

Next week I plan to be starting work back up for my own senior film, as well. I'm finally feeling re-invigorated for it after a while of being a little morose and apprehensive.

Here's the first of hopefully a few more studies/sketches for an illustration idea I've had in my head for weeks now. It's of Lace, Veil's mother (that is not Veil in her arms, however).

Sapphire head! I based her more off the really cool model I was talking about in an earlier post and changed her colors and ears. I like where she is going- she is still pretty without being stereotypically so. I definitely wanted to make her look a little bit more ethnic, as I imagine her society to be sort of Indian. Compare this image to the one in THIS POST !

I made this when I made the images from THIS POST , but it got buried in my USB drive. I like this one a lot because of the colors, it really inspires me to do something similar in color scheme... like a cool, lineless byzantine-inspired work.

Little Drawn Sapphire... Pose Ideas/Reference

Admittedly I need to dress her better to her personality (right now it just seems kinda like something I'd wear, ehhh), but I did these for my friend who is going to be taking reference stock art for me from a real model who has this character's body type. I hardly draw this character but I feel as though I probably will be doing more of her now that she's on the brain.

The second page is just quick gestures to help the model and photographer get an idea of what to do.

Also, I promise there's more to her than just what's presented here (really, there is!), it's just the other things are unnecessary information for the photo shoot.

Silly Sketches

Jess's character Damien. He is a jerk who is vegan only in social situations.


This one is a little old...I did it some time last quarter and forgot about it

This is a quick sketch for a nice girl on DeviantArt who decided to draw Veil and Gemini! I thought I'd return the favor and draw her something too.

These were not meant to viewed sequentially, but I suppose they do strangely fit. To my credit, I was going to add clothes to the bottom one there, but I'm not quite happy with the poses yet so I was trying to render out their forms.

Here are some fun sketches I did while at Jess's house! It was a blast to spend time with her and her family, and I couldn't have had a better time.

Here's an awesome picture one of Jess's many talented cousins, Christian, drew for me! It's of me and I absolutely adore it! I think he captured my likeness very well in this cartoon/anime form. I sincerely hope he keeps drawing, because there's a lot of potential in his work- it's not just me he captured so well, but he manages to show a lot of personality in all of his character drawings, which is really half the battle.

Here's some sketches I did for pompfiction! The creator was kind enough to commission me!

My Dearest Companion
edited image based off some critique

The process of finding the right carplane for my film. The colors aren't really final, though.

Merry Christmas, I Got You This Whale Pillow

Here's a fun sketch I did on Jess's cintiq while hanging out at her house! I have been visiting her for this past Thanksgiving weekend and I have to say it has been a blast, but more on that in a later post.

Anyway, Jess helped me with the colors and textures on this one! Thanks girl!

TEST FLIGHT storyboards

Here's some storyboards I made for my animatic for my film, TEST FLIGHT, for class. I can't say I'm really all that happy with the animatic right now, but I do feel like I'm going in the right there's hope. I just hope I can get it right...

TEST FLIGHT Character Sheets

Here's part of what I've been working on all weekend. These were certainly a challenge and I've gone through various stages of liking them and not-liking them.

I might add a little more detail to Mabel (hair lines, a ring around the skirt), but if I do I'll update here!

sketch revisit

Despite what it might seem, this was actually done for class. I'm staying on target!

More TEST FLIGHT concept sketches

Here's some rough concept sketches I did last night and today for my film, Test Flight! Keep in mind those background ones take me a while to do because a lot of it is trial-and-error stuff, so I know they're kind of unrefined and a bit sloppy right now, but I had to figure out the colors (still working on it) as well as the method and style in parts.
I hope you all like!

TEST FLIGHT rough concept work

Here's a bit of the rough/early concept work I've been doing for my Senior Film, TEST FLIGHT up until this point. What's left for me now is to finalize these designs (characters, car, color schemes, poster, etc), do some scene mock-ups, and most of all, clean up my storyboards so they're far more presentable than they are now (this is the part I am most apprehensive about since I do not even know for sure about my visual storytelling . . .). I do not know how I am going to get it all done in time, but here's hoping.

really quick rough sketch for the poster design (I'll be using it to promote the film around SCAD and (please dear lord) pick up animators for the film).

Jonathon Lawson

Mabel Lawson

Mabel took forever to get to the point where she is in the above pictures...she started as this.

A shot from my thumbnail animatic. It wouldn't be a Tracy MacLauchlan film without a crying baby animal.

How does an automobile know what flying is

My senior film will have a flying model T in it. In my mind it is more plane-like than balloon-like (though balloon-like= easier to animate, nice silhouette). I guess I just gotta keep tweaking it.

A quick sketch, approx. 45 minutes (according to my friend Jess who watched me draw this).

Animation Process

Hey, check out the process Dana Corrigan's Fate Saga takes to get completed. This is from a scene I animated!

Cleaned up Rough Animation (fire by Zelda!)

Clean Up/Line Work (by Dana Corrigan)

Colors and Shading
(Color Design (color choices, color effects, etc. are chosen by me to be the canon for the film's visual))

I hear the background is now being worked on to integrate it with the 2D elements better and I'm really excited to see the final result.
