Character Lineup for Valerie

The PDX-VFX group at our school is putting together a live action film titled Valerie. I get to do storyboards.
I won't post any of the boards until it's finished, but here's a lineup I did of some early character concepts. I like to create lineups like this at the beginning of storyboarding projects before the casting or character designs are completed, so I can go ahead and board immediately, using visually distinctive individuals to symbolize which character is which, both for myself and the director.


This is a new 2D animated-for-the-web project titled Globe.
It's a story about running away from home. Storyboards coming soon.

I have a pretty awesome friend who had a birthday today. I hesitated making her even a bookmark, because her art is so superior and always getting better (she's an illustrator).
Here is her blog.

(Happy birthday, Laura! You make everything brighter and funner (more fun?!) just by being around. I hope this year is your best one yet).

Dave Turnaround

I got to do a turnaround in Intermediate Animation class the other day. Turnarounds give me a hard time, but it's inspired me to do a bunch more. One of the nice things about school is that it gives you a save environment to realize you're terrible at something and need to do a ton of practice...For instance, I haven't attended a figure drawing studio in months.

So now I have two clear goals for next term. In the midst of a mountain of more vague goals...ugh. But these will actually be fun. I plan to post more as I go.

Ramona Flowers Lineart

HB pencil, 1 hour--a little long for a warmup, but I had to keep getting up to do things.
