Four Days, Four Characters
I guess an update is in order. Second year at Ringling is over! I can't believe my peers and I are all going to be juniors come fall! Soon we will be working on our thesis's (thesi?) heh. Anyway, after spending a long time and a lot of worrying about what I'm going to do this summer it turns out I'll be going to Concept Design Academy for a ten week training program in character design, environment design, and another class in props and environments. I really do enjoy the pre-production side of animation so this will be a good chance for me to learn and improve my skills in design. I'm really excited for this opportunity!
In related news I have to put together a portfolio for two of my classes. The first step for me was to do four semi-realistic character designs. It was a good change of pace doing more realistic characters then I normally do. I do miss the opportunity to exaggerate proportions however. Here are my characters for portfolio.
