For this week's assignment, Nate Wragg wanted us to design a character advertising a product.
It was really fun, but I think I focused too much on the overall look instead of the character :/
I ended up doing 2 because I liked both ideas and I couldn't decide.
I had the sketches done early so I was able finish!
They're not quite character designs but thats ok :P
Here are my film characters!
And they are all zombies. Because I love zombies and I've always wanted to do a film about them.
I dressed them up in fancy menswear from the 1920s because they are going to attend a tea party.
So I basically put all the things that I love together for my last film at CalArts.
Zombies, menswear and afternoon tea.
It's only my first pass, so I still have some revisions to do!
(their feet are all the same size... oops...)
I'm also thinking I should give them names at some point.
That could be fun.
The drawing above is for Nate Wragg's character design class.
His class is amazing and I'm learning a ton from him!
I have forgotten about my blog for a while!
School has already started at full force, but it feels good to be back.
It's my last year at CalArts so I'm going to make it a good one!
I hope to start posting some film sketches and character designs soon.
But until then, I am mourning the end of one of my favorite shows.
So sad, and so happy.
For my third year film this year, I decided that I want just sound effects and no music.
That may have been a mistake because it didn't work out so well :/
So I collaborated with the talented Michael Paul Kennedy and asked him to come up with something for my film.
I think my film does work better with the music and it's not so awkwardly silent anymore.
Which is good!
I have replaced my old film with the new version on Vimeo so hopefully other people can watch it with fresh eyes... and ears I suppose.
Also, a Sherdian intern that I work with was sad about the ending of my film.
So to show that there are no hard feelings, I did this quick little drawing:
We are all friends!
