Scott - Backgrounds

These are the fairly rough drawings for my final project for Animation Basics 2 with Liz. The smaller ones took a few hours to put together but the last one took something like 5 or 6 hours on its own. It was awful.

However this was all good perspective and background practice.

Scott - Doodles

Trying some things with pencil and coloured pencil.

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Old thigns and new things.

I've got a ton of drawings on my computer that are just doodles, some finished, others not. Most of them I haven't posted anywhere. Here are some of them!

Left is my friends character, Kin, who I dressed up like a street punk.

To the right are some old sketches of my character Shirona that I never posted anywhere.

A town scene I drew last night to paint something that wasn't a portrait and to practice environments with buildings.

And finally, some other character I started painting a while ago. Didn't seem important enough to finish.

That's all for now!

Scott - Gift of Music Storyboard

I didn't explain the last board, but I like this one better so I figured I would give some context. In this story, a young boy hears a tale about a forest sprite that lives near his village from his grandfather. In days gone by, the forest sprite gave mankind the gift of music and asked nothing in return. Over the years, the sprite became more reclusive until nobody had seen it for quite some time. The boy asks what would happen if he were to catch it, but the grandfather only smiles and says he isn't sure.

At this point the boy realizes the sun is setting and that he has to go home for dinner. He runs down the stairs and outside, waving goodbye to his elder. He runs through town where his mother pokes out from their home, yelling at him that he is late and that he should grab some water from the well. He responds, "Yes, mom!!" and carries on running down the road. She yells at him to slow down.

As he draws water from the well, he begins to hear soft flute playing coming from the bamboo forest around the well. He turns to see a glimmering light and drops his bucket to chase it into the woods. He carries on through the woods and crosses random obstacles until he finally sees it disappear over a hill and hears the music stop. He enters a clearing that appears empty and looks around. He then sees the sprite floating there, not moving. He approaches it, then imperiously demands to be given skill with music. The sprite stares at him. He stares back. After some time of the sprite not moving at all, he begins to become scared and steps back. As he does, the sprite leans back and reaches into it's flowing garments. It leans forward and gives him something. We see that it is a flute. The boy looks curiously up at the sprite, not sure what this means, then raises it to his lips to play a tune.

Only shrill notes come out. The boy looks up, startled and disappointed but finds that he has been left alone. He stands there for a minute, looking down at the flute in his hands and, finally, makes a stern expression. He raises the flute to his lips once more and begins to practice; trying to play the song he heard from the sprite. As he does, he turns off into the woods. We see him disappear eventually, but continue to hear him playing. The screen fades to black with him still playing as we hear him get a few notes right.

Scott - Storyboards!

We do a lot of storyboards in our Concept Creation class. The goal is to have a few ideas at the end of the semester to work from for our junior and senior animation projects. This was my first attempt and I'm not terribly happy with the concept but I figured I'd upload it here.

William - I Have Great Character

Ha ha I should post here more.

I thought it would be hilarious is Paveline's shirt in Chapter 1 said "I Have Great Character" based on an Engrish shirt I once saw.

Scott - Comic Design Work!

So right now, aside from doing ridiculous quick drawings like the one below this post, I am working on a graphic novel. It doesn't quite have a name yet and I'm still working on the outlines for chapters 5 and onward, but I'm getting there. Part of the work involved in doing a graphic novel is character design and I'm making sure I spend a really long time on it so that I have really solid characters that reflect their personalities.

I figured I'd share some of the work I've done on one of the main characters, Hyo. I still haven't quite decided what I'd like, but I'm leaning toward taking those last few designs (8+) and messing with them.

Just wanted to do a different style of sketch of one of my characters, Kielo. I've been drawing her off and on for a while now and I have a story I want to write about her but I'm not sure I've got a strong enough handle on perspective and urban architecture to really begin the artwork for it. She's really a fun character to think about though.

I have a strong desire to create vertical banners for either side of our booth at Anime Boston this year and this was my idea for the design for my banner. I'd probably zazz it up before I got it printed, obviously, but I like it overall.

It's hard to try and take sketches further. I feel like my sketches have a lot more character than my final work most of the time. So sad.

I started doing a sketch, but then when I drew the girl I thought, "Oh, this reminds me of something." What it reminded me of was a short animation by Osamu Tezuka about a girl jumping through the world. You can watch it here

So since I thought of that, I drew the background. Woop! It was a bit of an exercise. Usually I draw very messy line art, so I wanted to try drawing it a little cleaner. And also cel shading. I haven't "painted" that way in a long time.

For the curious, here is the line art with the sketch under it:

I just thought it looked neat that way. Ha ha.
