Strange Magic Week Day 2: Younger Selves/When we were kids (also Potionless Day)
I can imagine Dawn, Marianne and Sunny being friends as kids. And whenever they play hide and seek, Marianne is always stuck having to look for them for too long because Sunny and Dawn would choose low (if not underground) hiding places. Which are places she wouldn’t really think to look because she can fly and therefore flies up the trees to find at least Dawn.
Ever since Sunny became their friend (and even more so– Dawn’s best friend), Dawn learned how to lay low from Marianne with the help of Sunny! Also, Dawn has a hard time keeping her laughter to herself because of how annoyed her sister gets when they team up against her. Sunny has to try to shoosh her all the time.
Tsk tsk, Sunny… Dawn…. You’re being unfair to Marianne by not sharing your secrets. ;D
I am pretty busy and I don’t have time to color this one right now but I still desperately wanted to draw this idea for day 2!! Maybe I will color it next time…
Back from Japan, so here’s a little update to make up for the long drought.
I was recently lucky enough to get to take a board test! Don’t know if I’m allowed to share the whole thing, but here are some panels I really enjoyed drawing. What a learning experience it turned out to be - I didn’t expect to have to write all this dialogue for one thing, but that’s interesting that they allow for this much personal expression.
Thanks to the Crewniverse for allowing me the opportunity!
In addition to animating Silver in Treasure Planet, Glen Keane did some beautiful storyboards. Here’s Silver spinning stories for the crew below deck as Jim Hawkins looks on. Although Jim is skeptical of this new character, he can’t help but be drawn into Silvers’ big personality.
Along with my art directing duties on Over the Garden Wall, I also occasionally did some additional storyboard work whenever needed. Here’s a sequence I did for Chapter 2…some of the scenes made it in and others were reworked slightly…
This story is heavy right out the gate, with Korra battling her mental and emotional demons while doing her best to keep a brave face to those around her. The lines of Korra’s internal dialogue are gut-wrenching stuff.
I really enjoyed working with the quality of light and colours in this - tried to show some timelapse between first dawn and sunrise. Didn’t worry about cleaning up linework too much.
I’ve always wanted to do my own take on one of my favourite scenes from the show, Lin crying in Book 3. I present to you - the final frame!
