update on various works

You might have noticed today i posted six ‘inspiration’ posts. today was the day i needed to catch up with that part of the course rubric, filling in for each week of class that i didn’t post a reference work earlier in the semester.

Here’s what’s going on with me though: production of my Pearl short is coming along, though a little behind schedule (<- I update this page whenever i make progress on it though). this is because i needed to take some time to go back over some old works and get some files together which my professor is going to send to some professionals for critique–which is quite exciting!

One of the things i want to include is my little head-turn animation of Lapis. So i’ve nearly finished that:

this is after taking my prof’s criticisms into mind. i made distinct the locks of hair in the front and the hair on the sides of the head, such that they lie up against one another when she’s not moving, but separate during a motion. She still needs a mouth, though.

I can post some updates tomorrow showing each shot as i’ve been working on them in the Pearl VS. a Can short, as i haven’t shown off any work from that in a long while.

Whipping this WIP out in order to demonstrate motion, change of expression, and fluid volumes (that’s a term, right?)

non-sequitur: Purple is a really nice color to rough lines in, it’s so pleasing to look at

noteworthy critiques: the locks of hair framing the face should either both be connected to the mass in the back, or both be separate. i’m leaning toward separate because i love how they fly around individually
