Fruit pickup boards

so here are the finished storyboards/keyframes for the "picking up a fruit" project. so now you can actually see what's happening! (that first one is a pan shot.)

haha... oh, thorns.


Yes; from a suggestion from Grant I named the kid Willard. (though that is not actually what Grant suggested.)

final assignment for 2D animation production is an animation in 3 shots, about picking up a fruit. here's a quick storyboard concept (VERY quick):

I'll be working on a more complete storyboard soon. one that won't be boring and lame. it'll be funny, I promise!!! I need to ask Zelda about voices...

and for the sake of animation, I decided to give my little boy spaghetti appendages. here's the turn and BD:

dawwwww, he's so cute. :D

Faces Real and Not

first is real. drew these at last week's CAS meeting. oh lovely art students! as you can see, I started fairly realistically and then devolved to cartoons. :)

these, however, are all out of my head... ideas for my senior film. there will be lots of Arab/Israeli guys with beards, so how does one make lots of guys with beards look different?

ball bounce BG: ROUND 3 (50s style!)

"take the realistically painted background from before, and simplify it." is what Jacques said.

simplify it? they were good at simplifying things in the 50s. some of those designs i really love! so I'll emulate. yay.

don't know if it's done or not... maybe...

NOTE: illustrations of women in the 50s and 60s almost always had tiny hands and feet. don't ask me why, but it's true.

more random crap!

a page from my sketchbook: on the left, you'll see Lauras Nunden, my Star Wars RPG character. she's an Umbaran spy for the rebel alliance during the new legacy (?) era. (Scully's the DM and he's a star wars encyclopedia.)

on the right, there are rocks. drawn with pentel brush pen from photos that john took in Edinburgh. YAY ROCKS! i should draw rocks more often. it's fun, and you don't really need crazy perspective to make them look right. YAY LACK OF 3-POINT. :D
