Animation Final Update!: Revision 1

This is what I have for my final now. The animatic is done and right now I am working on keyframing and starting inbetweens while working on the backgrounds as well.
I'm having a lot of fun with this so far and I'm super happy to finally being able to start animating. More will come soon.
But it's crunch time for finals now. I have a lot of work to get done. Posts on here might be paused for a while.

Gestures with charcoal and ink

These are some of the more recent gesture drawings that I've done in class.
The first one is a two session heightened drawing. The others were done in a ink wash.

So I have this canvas back at home. 
This canvas has been with me for a long time and is probably the very first canvas that I have ever owned. I got it as a birthday gift when I was little and just getting into painting and art. It was a very special gift to me and there for
I never painted on it. 
Afraid that I would mess up and ruin everything, I just kept this canvas in storage to hopefully come up with the perfect idea to paint on it later. That kinda never happened. 
So now I have a wonderful idea. 
Summer break is nearing and I will have around 3 months of free time to fill. So my plan is, when break starts I will take this canvas and add a little bit of paint to it everyday. Just a quick dab of color here and there. It'll be a different color each day and there'll be no plan. Just a fun experiment to see what will come out of it.
So that's the goal. I'll also being adding pictures up here when that starts to show the process of it.
But for now it will just look like this.

A Squidly Guitar

I haven't posted much about this here, buuuut I've been working on a guitar body for Design class throughout the school year. This is what it looks like so far. It's fully cut out and sanded. I'll be painting it and drilling the final holes next week. We're only making the guitar body in class but I plan on buying the rest of the parts to make it a full guitar once it's finished


What do you think?

Last Days of Pastels

This week was the last week for using pastels on our figure drawings.
I started to get a hang of the medium though. 

Next week we are going to do heightened drawings with charcoal pencil.
Super excited to use charcoal again.

Zoo Sketches

My friends and I went to the zoo to draw the animals a couple weekends ago. It was really fun, but it was also a challenge to draw something that constantly moving. 
These are some of the sketches that I liked from that day.

Text Attack! Final Storyboard (?)

This is what my storyboard for the final is like so far.
We will be working on the animatic next so I don't think that the storyboard will change that much from now on but I'll have to see how things turn out.
