Here is my second assignment for Computer Illustration. This time we picked from several works of fiction. Since I’m a big fan of the movies, I picked The Lord of the Rings as my subject and focused on the journey aspect. Again, this was fun and challenging because I struggled with the color scheme on this one. I’ve included some process shots because I like to see behind-the-scenes images from other artists. More to come…
A buddy asked me how I colour stuff, and I found myself struggling to explain it so I made a little tutorial. A caveat: I don’t know anything about colour theory and this is not so much a method as a cheat. Don’t be like me, learn colour theory.
I bought tickets today for the opening night of Jurassic World, along with 30 others from the animation department. I couldn’t be more excited for this movie, because like many of you, Jurassic Park was one of the main reasons I went into animation. I was five when the original movie was released in 1993, so it wasn’t until later that I became fascinated with all things Jurassic Park and fell in love with practical effects, Stan Winston and ILM.
I’m curious to know, what movies got you interested in Animation?
