Sorry, for the lack of posts lately! I'm knee deep in finals right now, so all my concentration has been going towards my concept class.
BUT! I don't write to you empty handed! Here's a look at what I've been working on for the past couple of weeks!This is my cast of characters for my senior film! Though it looks like I'll be animating an entire family... I'm really not. Thank God. My film (which has yet to be named) is actually about a couple and their journey through life. They meet as children, get separated as adults, and then find each other again when they are old.
This is an art direction piece I created in Photoshop. I had a lot of fun playing with textures and all of the different brushes. The backgrounds are all going to be cut-outs that will be animated in after effects, while the actual people will be traditionally animated. I can't wait to experiment more with the look of this film over the summer!
Another art direction piece.
Some expression studies of our unnamed leading lady. I've been asking a lot of people what her name should be, and the general consensus is "Amelia" or "Amelee" or "Fernarginarnarrrrr...". I like the last one best. XD
What do you think her name should be? I've already decided that her boyfriend's name is "Dorian" (Doryan, Doriian, Doreeeean??), so something to compliment that.
In the meantime, I'll be working on finishing up my storyboards and animatic for finals. Looks like it might be another all nighter tonight!
