APS Progress

So, we are in the thicket of the first semester Animation Production Studio. Things are heating up too. We've already noticed some slackers and some creative hogs. Well, I just want to make what I am working on for the film the best stuff I can! Here are some working model sheets awaiting approval from the rest of the group:

While I want to stick with a cartoony style for the 2D portion, I want to play with how it is viewed since it is a "memory" from the main character (CG). Below is a few drawings from artist Mark Tennant.






His way of expressing detail with very little actual detail applied reminds me of something else.




Please pardon the parody.

I feel this resembles what I think of as a dream, never concentrating on every detail at once, but many details here and there. Now it depends on the feasibility of making this work with only three 2D animators and a limited amount of time.

Heres to high hopes!

Update 01.03.2010

School is over, and I must say I am glad! I learned a lot from my classes this semester and am excited to begin the Animation Production Studio class next. Jon McClenahan will be teaching, which is awesome! I still have a lot to learn and feel like there are some things I am still not grasping fully, but this next semester I am hoping to start early and try to run through all the steps to make sure I don't miss anything.

More updates coming soon.
