Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day! (According to CalArts). Here are some screenshots from a Z-sculpt I made last night (errrr this morning) of my main character, sans eyes and hair. This was somewhat inspired by James Gurney’s visit on Friday– he suggests that if you want to get realistic lighting/foreshortening/etc of a fictitious character, make a Sculpey (or in my case, Z-brush) maquette of them to work off of. It really, REALLY helps!!!! oliviazbrush1oliviazbrush2oliviazbrush3oliviazbrush4oliviazbrush5oliviazbrush6oliviazbrush7

Tea Time

goat-coyote-tea4 Here’s my layout homework for this week. Assignment was to draw a coyote and a goat having tea. I’m liking the idea of making all layout homework a color adventure, and a character design one as well. It’s like… Layout/color theory/character design all rolled into one. Then again, throw in animation and that’s what [animated] filmmaking is all about!– Oh, and story too. Can’t forget that!



That’s right, now you can get a Cartoon-YOU! featuring you and your sweetheart, or best friend, or whoever you want! Head on over to the Tahn-Emporium for your own charming, unique drawing! You send me pictures to a public online album of you and your companion (or, if you’re getting this as a gift for another couple, then link me to their album); tell me the expression/mood you want the piece to be and I’ll send you an 8″x8″ 300dpi fully-colored, fully-rendered drawing such as the one above of Tess and Dimitri. For a little extra, you can even have a tangible print mailed to you 🙂
