I was very lucky and was able to find a few of the books at my local library. I feel like when I first got into animation and you're overjoyed because someone has opened up a whole new world of wonders to you. I don't know Claire, but I just wanted to shout out a big thank you for all the hard work that has gone into accumulating the knowledge and the fact that she took the time to share it with all of us :)
Below is an image that was inspired by one of the books.
One of my co-workers introduced us to an amazing day during one of our sketching sessions. 3 people out of a group come up with 1 word each and then you have 15 minutes to do an illustration. It was so much fun and the word combinations that came up were just hilarious.
I finally have a new scanner!! So hopefully I'll be able to update more regularly again :)
This is a drawing I did last year for my friend Dan (http://danpozo.blogspot.ca/), who besides being an amazing animator is also an amazing guitarist!
Sorry for the lack of update guys. Cloudy 2 is in the last stages of wrapping up and my last day was Friday. It was a bitter sweet goodbye. We had such a fantastic crew working on this film, from every department all the way up to the directors! I can't wait to see what the film will look like finished. All I can say is that the individual scenes all look like they were paintings. Such an amazing sense of colour, truly inspiring!
I definitely have to send out a huge thank you for getting the chance to work on this film! I learned so much and feel like I've only scratched the surface of what's possible. Everyone on the project was so helpful and such an inspiration!! I can't wait to carry forward what I learned onto my next film. =D
I wanted to share a character with you that
I'm designing for my school iAnimate. They were looking for a little
girl design, so I did a bunch of concepts and this little girl was
chosen :). She was actually my favourite of all the designs I did, so
I'm really happy! I love that she's not quite a girly girl, but has a
little spunk behind her and doesn't mind getting hurt ^^.
a big shout out to Angelo Sta Catalina who will be modelling her.
Angelo has a really good sense of design so I can't wait to see how she
turns out :)
This is another monster design I did. I loved drawing the teeth on the baby ^^. Bad teeth designs in animated films always remind me of Hogarth and Penny. Somehow just this slightly imperfect thing made those character so much more real to me.
No one will probably think of this when looking at the design, but I was thinking of shooting stars when I drew the lines on the dress ^^
