Major Studio finals are done = MASS UPLOAD

So the important classes such as my After Effects, Flash, and Animation Projects along with silly art history are out of the way leaving Business Practices today and Gesture Drawing all day tomorrow.

Here's What You Get:

AE Final-

So this would be a funny trailer for my film No Matter What. (Details about that can be found here: http://gimpysoup-nomatterwhat.blogspot.com/)The teacher told me to have more close ups and where she thought they should be thus the above video. During crit, she told me she would've liked to have seen more animation. The close up's replaced what animation I originally had. I could've done more with the text...*shrug* I'm happy with the end result at least. I find it amusing.

Flash Final-

I may put some sound on this eventually. I like it. And everyone seems to love the blue dude, Bally Bu. I have a very vague story outline for these three characters. I may expand on it because of this project.




So yeah. I'll eventually get around to scanning and uploading some of my gesture drawing to put up on here. 

Over break I will hopefully get time to do a couple tests worthy enough to be put into my demo reel.

Evolution of Damon...


Oldest (from last semester) on the right to the most current on the left. Improvement much?

Wheee.

Yeah anyway...I should be working on finals. :P

Pahahaha, don't mind this-just thought I'd update

Yeeeeeeeeeeeah....Third project for my After Effects class. Unfortunately, I lost steam about half-way through so..this could most definitely be better. However, I think this version has its merits. A good number of my colleagues and I found it amusing.

Tiger Striped Cat

This was one of my projects in my AfterEffects class...tah..dah? There are a number of wonky things going on.

By the way...I love Steven Blum.

OTTAWA!

Well, the film festival was a lot of fun, though not awe-inspiring like it was last year. Aaaaand, I missed the picnic aka the biggest social/networking aspect of the whole trip which was a bummer even though I'm quite horrible at being social and that whole networking...thing. Ah well, maybe when I submit "No Matter What" it'll get accepted and then I can meet people that way. o_O

Flash test..

video

An assignment for my flash class. There is a good number of mistakes, like his eating habits/fluctuating weight.
I know what I need to fix for the next assignment. :) Just thought I'd throw some more animation up on here since that's what I'm going to school for.

Holy crap, update!


Some cyberpunk-ish girl I got inspired to draw after having watched "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" which was awesome, by the way. Little long/drawn out but it kept me guessing the whole time. I haven't even remotely thought of colors other than dark hair and eyes.
She isn't related to Key Element but there's potential for another idea where she is the "protector". A special bodyguard of sorts for this key person in some giant plot...thing..yeah..not that..great...anyway..

P.S. her poncho thing makes her look a little like Dracula, I think.

Finally, the protagonist


This is Damon, the more or less hero of Key Element. The X is the original color scheme while the stars are the ones I'm currently considering (I've pretty much already chosen the top left scheme).

Hopefully, I'll have an environment or two for the next post..

Creature sketches

Some creatures from that same comic idea that will eventually be inked and colored in photoshopped.

Character and Color References

In order, left to right: Zeplyn, Roan (aka Ashlyn), Amarentos, and Vance. All are major characters minus the lead of a comic idea I'm working on known as "Key Element" or KE for short. The "X" mark is the original color scheme I was using in past designs and the Stars are the ones I'm diggin' over the others. Vance is kinda left out in this endeavor.
