Willa Color Attempts

Soooo this proves that I'm just now learning how to color. It's pretty frustrating. Apparently I didn't know anything about values before yesterday. Here's my progression from that first attempt... Doing it in black and white first REALLLLYYY helped. I need a lot of practice. But that's what this blog is for right??? To show progress! :D Let's hope I get better soon.

Sketching for Animators and Illustrators Midterm

So this is the first time I've combined my inspiration in the same area as my drawings... and it actually looks pretty cool :) It's nice to see it all together! It's kinda big so it'll probably be impossible to see anything unless it's opened in a new window or tab... haha :\

Oh man... this is gonna be a huge project. I'm so excited!!! :D

Willa and Fritz

Alrighty...I might finally be starting to like them :)

More Willa

I think I'm getting closer, but she's still not totally locked down. Her body looks too flat... gotta find a way to remedy this and make her volumes apparent.

Fritz & Willa Concepts

My midterm for Sketching for Animators and Illustrators is on Saturday, and I'm feverishly trying to get my main characters locked down. I posted some Willa before, and now I finally have some stuff on the main guy, Fritz.

Here are the more developed Fritz sketches. I like the way this is going :) If only I could get Willa to such a state... blah. I'm hoping I can find her soon!

And here are some of the scribbles it took to get there. Process process process! 

Here's an attempt at Willa... but it's pretty weak compared to Fritz. ARGH!

I still don't like where this is going. I think I'll give her long hair.

'Alienated' Character Exploration: Willa

Soooo I'm taking Marshall Vandruff's Sketching for Animators and Illustrators class at Fullerton College right now, and the cool thing about it is that we get to design our own project... so it's basically like independent study :) Awesome. Therefore I'm taking this opportunity to FINALLY create a short film. My midterm is next week and we have to show a pre-production presentation board, so I'm kinda freaking out since I wanna have as much material as possible for it. For my final I'm planning on doing storyboards and hopefully an animatic for the film I wanna animate early next year... never done that before so I'm preeettttyyy excited :D Just wish I had more time to work on this stuff. Ugh.

Anyway. Here are some early character explorations of the female lead, Willa. I'm still trying to figure her out, so it's a lotta scribbly diarrhea, but I figure I'd post it anyway.

Some Girl

Some sketches from a story that I'm putting on hold for a while.

Self Portrait

Sooooo a couple friends and I have started doing this independent study thing to strengthen our foundational skills, and everyday we have a daily exercise. We started today, and the first one was a self portrait! So here's mine! Yay! :D
