The Rain Falls - Layout Work

Here are some examples of the work I've done so far for the backgrounds of The Rain Falls. I definitely want to keep a natural, water color feel to it, but finding natural water color brushes for Photoshop lacks the spontaneity. I'd like to try painting real water-color pictures for the backgrounds, so I'll have those tests up within the week. For now, here's what I have:

Mouse Run

I was just fooling around when I made this mouse, but I had a lot of fun making it come alive! It was my first spontaneous animation! I think I'm going to become addicted.

Face Paint - Photoshop Practice

I painted this entire figure in Photoshop, but I'm still working on it.

So for now, here's a preview!

Archer - Photoshop Practice

I did this sketch last year, practicing my skills in Photoshop. I loved drawing this guy's cape, and eventually I'd like to develop a story for him. But for now he's just practice, and a fun thing to color if ever I find the time.

The Rain Falls - Animatic

So here it is! the animation I've done thus far on the short film The Rain Falls. Right now, it's only a mix of storyboards and short key-framed work, but I'm really excited for how it's coming along!

Rain Falls - Update

This week, I've been working on filling in the holes of the animatic of The Rain Falls, including rough animation of guitar playing, walking, and other exciting things! The most fluid animation is coming from drawing MeiMei with her violin, I'm really excited to show the rough work I've been doing with her.

So, this is an update announcing that I plan on updating this blog very soon. I'll admit, it's a bit anti-climactic, but I can assure you that this week I'll put updating this blog as first priority! Expect the announcement for my new YouTube account and more sketches soon!
