The Good The Bad and the Beautiful



So , a couple of months back, I was asked to help with character designs on a short film production happening with StudioX called The Good, The Bad and the Beautiful. The story is pretty hilarious but they were very specific about the characters.




The Director, Allen Jo, gave me a rough setting with these and the challenge was to keep the shapes of all the characters in a U-shaped blob with slight variations for ease with modelling and other departments. The best part was I got to contribute to a vital part of the story with an interesting twist to the design of the damsel in distress. I'm very excited for the short to come out haha! Good luck Allen!







This is just half of the amount of explorations done before the final designs. Had a lot of fun!

Environments - An Eye for an Aye



Also worked on An Eye for an Aye story environments. A real struggle I must say. Really pushed myself to stay motivated and keep going with the environments.


I wanted the eagle's tree to feel like a pirate ship..


Started out with gouache and fixed some stuff in PS. This was real fun painting. 



These were the cages inside the tree from which the owls would be locked up and also the cages that the boy would use as steps to get to the top.


I think I died a couple of times doing this one.







Another piece I did was purely environmental with the boy crossing the tree bridge into the jungle.
The drawing perspective was pretty quick, but ideas for the background had me going crazy for a while.




Much respect to all you digital painters.  I realized its not easy after all :P


Days of Strife - A Tim Evatt Story

Did a lot of environments and props this last semester, taking a break from getting into too much characters, for a change..
Thanks to Tim Evatt for pushing me..











But then I couldn't resist an appealing character when I got the chance


 Really wanted to push myself and try this out traditionally. Was very frustrating and joyful at the same time!
