It's been a while since I've managed to post anything new, and today is no exception as I dug up some old work to colour. I'm still in merry old England, so I haven't been very productive as of yet. I'm sure when I get back to Cardiff I'll be working around the clock so I'm going to take full advantage of the work void coming up over the next few days.
He may not be Santa, but he has a white beard and is awesome, it's Mr Jeff Bridges!
I hadn't done a poster in a while and knew I wasn't going to do any real work this evening.
I can't wait to see this film, everything I've heard makes it sound like a masterpiece so there's some high expectation but if anyone can deliver, it's those darn Coens.
I wanted it to look haggard and worn so there's lots of leathery texture on there.
This also made me want to do a poster collection based around famous film beards, but I couldn't think of any.
I've been drawing bits and bobs throughout the week, but nothing realy substantial. I've got some coloured poses of the BigBadBoss im doing so I'll post them soon, but I've been far too busy trying to stay warm and watching a bajillion films.
This was an old drawing I had done in the Summer when I was figuring out what I was going to do for my 3rd year film. I cleaned it up and changed some bits today. She was a bit short originally and was throwing away a baseball bat after beating up some goons. I'm trying to find a bold colour scheme for Bubblegum Girl and I think this is a good direction, but that may be the beer talking.
I've never liked doing turnarounds, I can't think in 3 dimensions, it's not right. I need to get used to drawing with a tablet rather than just using it to colour so these were really roughly scribbled on paper, a couple of positions for each character and I then cleaned everything in Photoshop.
I finally made myself put the finishing touches to my After Effects project today, as well as get cracking on some dissertation bits. Also got some rough poses for my film plotted out.
And then I got bored and made Tron Girl! Twice actually, as my laptop crashed the moment I finished it the first time.
Still waiting for my Daft Punk poster, stupid post.
She's fighting robots! I spent much of today planning the one shot fight scene. and decided early on that rather than have a stealthy swat team take on Bubblegum Girl, it should be robots. This means they can be decapitated and torn limb from limb.
The main reason I'm posting this is because its glowy..
These are some of the bits and pieces I was working on today.
I'v got some more pages of scribbles working out some possible fight shots, but I wanted to get them sorted and clean before I post anything major.
I'm getting a lot closer to having the characters finalised and I'll work on their turnarounds soon. My main priority is the fight scenes as I'd like to have something new for the sweatbox.
Lots to do before January.
After three weeks of After Effects it's time to dive straight back into pre production. I spent most of today drawing Bubblegum Girl, with the odd scribble of the Big Bad Boss, but I came away with about 20 pages of drawings. I'll post some more of those when they're a bit cleaned up, but for now we have a Bubblegum Girl Rainbow!
