Second Year Beginnings

Its been a while again since my last post, but yes its the start of the second year here at CG Arts & Animation officially since Monday 20th. I must say, things are shaping up to be as busy and as exciting as ever, with two simultaneous projects working along side each other, along with a third theory project for good measure. That's three layers of projects to contend with!

More on that later, for now I just want to wrap things up left off from the Summer Project. I was able to produce a few more concept pieces before finally designing and ordering the 'Art of' book for the project, which should hopefully arrive sometime next week.

I redesigned the Tech Guy character (renamed him as Wise One), as he felt a little too capable and detached from the others as a whole. The new design captures the slightly mad and inquisitive nature of the character, with oversized flip-flops and an amassed a collection of trinkets.

The last piece I did began to capture the ritual element of the soundscape. I wanted to give a mystical quality to the scene, so I experimented with elements such as a limited colour palette with tonal values rising from the tree to create a dramatic glowing effect, casting the gathering figures in darkness.

To be honest, I did not get to do as much as I originally intended for the project, although I am satisfied to an extent with what I produced, I wanted to explore so much more. Perhaps I may return to the project at some point, although now its time to move on and get cracking with the second year.

Wish me luck!
