in light and shadow

Just a bit from one of my fav books of the moment, A darker shade of magic (book 1). I’m trying some new stuff, decided to do this one with a more stylised approach. Always thought ADSOM would make a great animated series

“...I don’t think you understand shadows.”

Carl the Animator: “Lies. All lies.”

Ted the Animator: “See, it’s jarring for the audience when characters are pitch-black silhouettes in one shot…”

Ted the Animator: “…and magically get fully-lit a frame later.”

Carl the Animator: “It’s all dramatic ‘n’ cool, though.”

Ted the Animator: “Kinda… look, next time, just make it work with the light, k?”

Carl the Animator: “Bingo.”

*29 seconds into the episode later*

Ted the Animator: “…wow, ’next time’ came awfully quickly, huh?”

Carl the Animator: “It’s a motif for the episode. Chill.”

Ted the Animator: “Aaaaand once again, character in full shadow becomes character in full light.”

Carl the Animator: “No, see, the shadow side is behind her, but her front is lit differently!”

Ted the Animator: “By what?”

Carl the Animator: “The… moon… sorta?”

Ted the Animator: “Then why are the skeletons so well-lit from the front?”

Carl the Animator: “…dude, nobody notices or cares about this but you.”

Ted the Animator: “The pursuit of excellence does not exclude skeleton shadows, Carl.”

*2 minutes into episode later*

Ted the Animator: “…ok, now you’re just messing with me.”

Carl the Animator: “DON’T DISS THE MOTIF, TED. DON’T DISS IT.”

Light of Eyllwe, the beloved Crown Princess, Nehemia Ytger from the Throne Of Glass series.
