Hi! Sorry for the lack of updates lately, i’ve been quite busy finishing various school projects and making my 1st semester exam project.
Well, that said, i hereby present you a little animation i’ve made showing a few steps of a painting i did in my document study class. It was an exercise to learn how to paint fur. i chose a wolf because i like the animal, but it’s hard to paint because of the number of different colors it has on itself.
For this work we have to invent an extra-terrestrial being that is part of some kind of band.
A part of the job is to have an alien with his musical instrument and the other part was some kind of a contest.
We had to design the clothing for the orchestra. So here are my propositions.
well, here it is, after a long time, my first work in the document study class work. We had to study the way reptiles and dinosaurs were and then we had to create a dinosaur. then we had to paint our chosen creature the most believably possible. (sorry for the very crappy quality of my pictures)
yeah, i know, i did it again… showing you my second work before my first one… but you’ll have my first document study class work up tonight too, i promise (GMT+1).
Well, here is my second work in character design class.
For this job we had to design very readable silhouettes for:
- a dangerous dog
- a bad kid
- a menacing viking
- a chanting sorcerer
- an old rockstar
Here is my second work in the document study class (the first one will come soon, but i have to take a picture of the final image first… sorry). We had to buy a trout (or another fish) during our lunch pause and we had the afternoon (4 hours) to paint it the more accurately and realistically possible. Well, here’s my try.
Here are the pieces i’ve been working on since september. First, i modeled my left foot from life in clay, then i had to transform my foot into something surreal. i chose to make a surreal landscape keeping the basic shape of my foot. The third image is a moulding of my hand that will be used as reference to model it in clay.
Here is the first illustration work i did for school. We had to choose a character performing an action and show him once during the day and a second time twelve hours later.
The character had to have performed his/her action for twelve hours straight, not do it in the morning and do it again in the evening.
Finally some sketches from life done in some bars/pubs in Lausanne with Jonfen and sometimes Clément. Here is a selection of the most “not-so-shitty” sketches.
hope you’ll like it.
Sorry for the lack of updates, here is a 3d Lego version of King Arthur from the Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie to thank you for waiting. I will soon scan some of the sketches i did in some bars with Jonfen and put them up.
i’m sorry i didn’t update in a time, my computer got dead and i took some vacations for my father’s birthday.
i’m back now, and i’m happy to tell you all that Jonfen and i are gonna be sketching almost every week from life, in the freeport or around. Contact either of us if you wanna join in. We would be pleased to see people join our little exercise.
expect to see the results of my studies here.
Here’s the animation my little brother did for his final exams at ceruleum. i helped him by doing the title sequence, some compositing and the sound design while he did all the animation (hand drawing, over a 1’000 drawings for the characters), backgrounds, animatic, story board, character design, script… well, everything.
