sculpting>baked>primed


I just finished up the toy project for 3d design in which we had to create a toy and its packaging. I decided to do a collectible figurine of muffin lad, the character i created this summer. This is my third time ever sculpting, and i think im getting better.

So Ringling has been pretty great wo far. Ive met some awesome people here and have been trying to learn as much as possible.
I think my favorite class right now is contexual figure. I dont really dislike any of them but some could be better.





Here are some sketches from orientation week i did. Im on to my third sketchbook now because there is just so much to draw here.
Here is a caricature of a friend i did for fun.











And some figure drawings from FEWS ranging from 2min to 25min.

Playing with shapes and digital coloring.

So i just started my first week of classes at Ringling. More to come on that later.

I decided to get some storyboarding practice in, so here is my orientation experience. (still getting better at digital line art so bear with me:)

The campus is really beautiful.

The move-in went over smoothly.
Orientation Activities were to help us incoming students make friends.

The Orientation Leaders were really enthusiastic.

We took turns sharing information about ourselves.



Eventually everyone started to loosen up.
Classes began on Monday!

So for the past few months I've been developing this short, called "O'Darth's Bike Shop." Its about a dragon who owns a bike shop and one day he gets an unexpected visitor. I originally started this as a way to build a portfolio, but i decided it would be good practice to take it a bit further. Some of the project has already been posted, but ill put it here anyway just to have it all in one place.



Storyboards:
Here is the entire sequence of the short boarded.

Characters:


Here are some sketches of the main character in different key story moments, early in the stories development.


Main Character turnaround.



Here are some sketches I did when developing the girl character.

Sketches of story moments with the girl character. Her character tries to overcompensate for her small stature. She is always on her toes in an attempt to appear larger.



Turnaround

Environments:

I probably didn't give enough time to developing the environments so i still may go back and do more in this area.
This is the original layout drawing that shows what the shop looks like from the outside. It shows where the camera would be in this particular shot.

I later went back and redesigned the shops exterior, in this sketch.



Color script:

Here is my first concept piece i did when developing the story. I guess this could now be part of the color script.


Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Any critiques or suggestions are appreciated.
