Portfolio Day!

Had an exhausting portfolio day today. Here is the work I showed! I'll try and put a demo reel up, but maybe I'll wait til my film is done and there are more shots to use.

Watercolor studies

Painted outside a couple days ago. It was fun, these are each pretty small. I struggled with the sky colors a lot for some reason. Its hard to get the feeling of the sky being a bright light while maintaining its deep color.

We were supposed to design a character based on a piece of music this week. I've been listening to Outkast's Aquemeni album a lot recently, so I went with the song "Return of the G. I will fix this drawing later but I'd like to do some more of it since I only had time to do one today. Its hard to design when you draw for your film for so long...

I tried to fix the first pose and then make an attempt at a second one. The weight on the chain still wasn't great, and the second drawing had less appealing shapes.

Here are me third and second passes at each drawing. I feel better about them, but they could always be better, obviously.
