Well, it's been a little over a week since I updated this blog. Things are going to be a little slow here for a while, I imagine, as I'm super busy with my film, Test Flight, Jess's and my pitch to WB, The Taffetas, among other projects. But here's some sketchbook-like things I've scrounged up in the meantime:
Here's a sneak peek at the puppet for Mabel for my film, Test Flight (http://tesflight2011.blogspot.com/). This is actually an outdated screenshot as a few things have been tweaked now.
hand studies for an animation I'm making for my internship
Study sketches I did today for Luke, one of the main antagonists from The Taffetas. We're going for a very James "Jimmy" Jones feel (the cult leader of Jonestown). I kind of like it because we technically have a world of monsters and magical creatures (in a modern-ish setting), and things get serious because of something/someone very real and human. We also have a pretty cool idea for his big sunglasses in that we hope to often show them reflecting whatever he's looking at, but there's always something off in the reflection that is more telling of his mental/emotional state than what he is actually seeing. So it's like his glasses are not really reflecting the real world back to us, but the world as perceived by this man. I think it should be really fun to play around with, especially with this lineless, texture-based style we're going for. I hope to illustrate the idea myself sometime.
here's a line up of our main Taffeta family, excluding Licorice Taffeta. We're changing Cypress Taffeta (the red-head) though to be an 11-13 year old boy.
some studies I did in photoshop for Ronnie, the Golem character. There's more on paper but, you know :)
