Whoa, haven't posted here for a while! S.T.A.G will hopefully be taking on a project next year, so expect lots more posts in the new year!
This is a poster for my final film next year. The Boy and the Beast. I'll be posting more details in the next few weeks.
The silhouette of the beast isn't the final shape of the character, I'm still in the design process of it. The Boy is almost finished in design, there might be a few tweaks that I might make, but here he is so far.
I finally know which myth/legend/tale I'm going to be looking at for the Individual Short module; the Brothers Grimm fairytale of Rumpelstiltskin. I've explained this in a bit more detail on my blog page, but just thought I'd share with you a little glimpse of what I've been up to.
I've been playing around with different fonts an styles of text for the main title - with thanks to Matt for his help! - and one of my favs so far is this one I created myself. I spelt out the name using thread, and photographed it...
This weekend I have managed to get some colour tests done for my main character in The Owl of the Woods!
This was my first try, at the time I was doing it I felt that it wasn't feeling right but decided to finish it anyway.
I really felt this style clicking with me while doing it, having your two main tone colours as the lines as well made things go alot faster to. I most likely at the moment stay with this style for the character colour. I also decided that he won't wear gloves which stops your attention going straight for this hands.
I tried my hand at drawing a background, it's not great but hoping to get better soon with the help of the very talented Jacqui Davis over the summer.
