I'm in the process of sketching out all the environments from a short story some friends and I wrote. This is a a sketch of a characters office. I'm sketching out 10 more then I will be picking the 5 most interesting ones and painting them as backgrounds.
I finally started to add some light to the piece. I am adding some highlights and rays of light peaking from behind the foreground trees to brighten things up more. The textures are also not done yet. Any other suggestions?
Here are some early concepts I did for the Belize story. This is the hero character and her daughter. As a group we decided that the mom looked way to young. I wanted to keep the designs fairly simple so that the characters could be easily animated in flash.
Here is a version of her looking a little older.
In the story our hero is transformed into a fish. Here is her fish form. I kept her eyes the same and tried to keep a lot of the shape language between her human form and fish form similar.
Here are how the characters look like in flash. They will probably go through more changes, but here they are so far. These are also not the final colors.
I am in the process of building some paper sets. Here are some of the concepts I created in illustrator. These are asset concepts for a floating Island for a short film my friends and I are doing titled, Belize.
Here are some sketches I did before I started to design in Illustrator to get a feel for the type of lines I wanted to use for these particular designs.
These are some characters I designed in a specific shape style for an underwater animation I am in the process of finishing. The first fish is a drawing I copied from Secret of Kels, the animated film, to understand the shapes better. Then I based the rest of the fish on that style. The fish I drew were based on some fish I observed on a trip my friends and I took to the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla.
I was sitting on my bed doing my homework and my kitty and sister passed out next to me. They didn't sleep very long before kitty started to beg for attention. Kitty is sporting the very trendy lion haircut.
I was bored one night and I decided to take out my tablet and do some background sketches in photoshop. These were inspired by a story that some friends and I are in the process of finishing. It is a retelling of the Celtic story of the Sea Maiden.
