Heading Home

So I came to this conclusion that in order to improve in drawing skill, color, composition, or anything, the best way is to just keep doing it. A lot. So I'm gonna try to do any illustration, painting, character design or even quick sketches and post them everyday.

On the side note, I've been trying to come up with my thesis story. I have few ideas and concepts in mind, but it feels like walking in the dark.

Serpent Storyboard ver.

This is the storyboard version of serpent animatic from previous post. I noticed that in thumbnail, it's harder to read if there's too much details or having subtle value difference. Always think of values and simplicity.

Serpent's Story Animatic

Took me about 3 weeks to do it. It's based on a little section of the story of "The Circus of Dr. Lao", where the big serpent tells a guy story about him eating a little boy. It was really fun thinking about cool compositions. Not really happy about the voice actor (cough, me) but I learned a lot from this assignment. I'm really glad that I took Advance Compositions and Design class with Don.

Bear thumbnails and Moar

Remember that bear animation that I posted long time ago? 
So this is how I planned it out.

It only took me about an hour and half to animate the bear on Sunday afternoon at the school studio, thanks to the few days of bear research and thumbnailing.
It's surprising how thumbnail can help so much. I really love doing these
small sketches and figuring out what action I'm trying to achieve.

I also did thumbnails for my spring film right before I jump on animating.


So much work this semester! I've been working on this film,

It's the first film that I completely colored and composited. Never knew coloring and compositing
would take this much efforts and time.
