Layout Concepts

Hello everybody! Recently Studio 10 has placed layout design concepts as the main focus for our film. We focused on abstract and lighting for the batch of layouts below using references from Brandon Scott (lighting) http://brandoblogo.blogspot.com/
Kim Possible http://savedisneyanimation.org/kpcaps/Site/Home.htm, Neds Newt and Powerpuff Girls (Design). We tried emphasizing the main focus of the scene with light and a higher amount of detail.
We had a "show and tell" of all the other concepts that we came up with today but I don't have the files so I can't upload them... Sorry! We discussed what worked and what didnt within the layouts and from the points made today, we are going to try a different approach. We are slowly approaching the final visual style for our film and it's looking good (in my opnion :D )

The Character Design Exercise

The Idea, suggested by Stephen, was to get each member to design their own version of each of our story's characters (Kid, Good Fairy, Bad Fairy), and then pass the page onto the next person. The next person would then design the character again, based off the original drawing, and then pass it on, so the next person would have 2 drawings to pull ideas from, and so on and so forth.
With this method, we ended up with 243+ designs in about 3 hours (about 5 min. per sketch).

The following is the remains of that exercise, as we combed through the designs and picked out the best ones to develop further. Perhaps you will see those later. Also, I've reinserted Andre's designs - his cleanup is in the previous post.

The characters are shown in the order that we did them, and I think we were all getting worn out by the end of the Bad Fairy, haha.

I've tried to keep the sets together so you can see each member's influence. Studio 10: Please comment and leave any corrections or note which pages you started.


enjoy

CANDY CANDY CANDY....




as randomly relvant as this blog may get therefore not giving any bypasser any visually appealing charts, templates, pretty portfolio covers, posters or fancy film title names.....

nothing makes me prouder than knowing that Im in a group of 9 where each member has gone through some character development throughout this films progress, through meeting and "quality time" so that way we can walkaway with a beautifully polished and ziplock fresh short that we can look back on and simply smile.

Layouts


A layout design for the film. I focused more on the style and playing around with it. I tried a flat style and then popping out the objects/items the character would interact with. Everything that isn't used I just leave as flat. Sorry for the messy lines.

Tooth Fairy Rough Drafts





These are story sketches and such suggesting that we take this idea to a more haunted , story for bad kids who dont brush their teeth sorta feel. But we couldnt find motivation enough for the tooth collector fairy to really NEED his teeth. But we got something even better now but i still have drawings for a Rough Draft #2 which will be posted in colour hopefully by Mr. Techni-Colour himelf. Robert Kim.
