week 9/ Inspirations and concept

In class Simeon found this cool website


awesome artist that inspires me with his color pallet and the way he
uses it. Also great animation out of this and great imagination.
this is what I strive to go for in my demo reel.



Week 8/ more of dat kat

I was thinking that a final music video might not be the trail to get into.
Too much time will be spent in creating a final prestige piece that I will
not be able to focus in my actual demo.

I had an Idea for an emotional story of a father and a child that ends up
with the father realizing that work is not as important as spending time
with his son.

Week 7/ character design

This is one of the characters I came up with for the band,
it is concept art for the base player. I came up with it while
drinking Vodka and watching the venture bros while
listening to the Gorillaz, I want his personality to be more of
a wild pre-teen kid that lived in a foster home and escaped.
He meet Z while running away.

Week 6 / Inspiration


And this is the story board animatic --

This is my inspiration for what I want to do.
Since high school I have been inspired by the style and flow
Of how Jamie Hewlett brings out the characters in the
Digital band The Gorillaz. Since highschool I decided that
I want to have the same success and entertain with a digital
Now that Im here turning a skill into a degree, I want to make that dream true with my very own digital band.

I already Have an animator that will take care of helping me with the load.
I still have to come up with the storyboards.

This is a quick sketch of two characters that will be in the bandThe one on top Is Popov, crazy wild kid
from Russia that Joined Z (bottom corner)
after he ran away from the orphanage.

Z is a bit conceded but has an
unselfish heart. He has friends
but sometimes he rather be alone.
He likes Chinese but prefers
Italian. Complex character...

Week 5

Idea came into plan! the capstone is going to be about a music band that is
running from some Aliens that are targeting them, they go from the city to the
outskirt of the city where they fall into an abyss, there are some obstacles on the way
that will slow the band down. The Style will stick to The examples I showed
in week one post. Flash will be used unless I can use something similar to
render man (dreaming is priceless) so I can make it in 3D. It will be a 2-3 minute short.
I choose a music video because it has potential to be Viral specially since music and visual
mixes together to create something special.

Another Idea that I discussed in class today
was about making a speed painting of a concept
that turns into an animated 3D Render that
pops out and moves around, great Idea for part

look for creativecrash.com
of the reel

Week 4

We wen't to see Will Vinton this week, And it was awesome. He still
has that cool mustache and he also has some awesome info to tell.
He told us animators that the story must convey what our animation
is going to deliver with its style. Ideas come in everyday from basically
breathing, everywhere. He also sparked the Idea of what I want to do for
my final capstone project!

Week 2 / mind map

I was considering what I would like to be doing
for the rest of my life, of course I could improve
and maybe change my mind and become a
dentist (not likely to happen), but It is basically
what I would like to do. This is my mind map
and it consists of my skills and the different
things that I can do with them. I have decided
that I am a conceptual artist that can animate,
3D model, design, and create cartoons.
Maybe I will become a generalist but right now
I will go with my mind map.

Week 1

The Blog For class is up! I customized it. I began to think of new ideas
for what my cap-project is going to be. I thought of a short in 3D of a
supermarket worker that is having a bad day. I also thought of making
something more exciting and creating an action packed 2d animation short of a couple of ninja pupils trying to retrieve a lost artifact from a camp full of enemies and demons because flying monkeys are taken, Maybe ninja monkeys...I'm not sure yet on what I want to settle for or if I will even go for it in 2d,
I might change my mind and make it 3D or 4D, which ever one looks better.
btw, I really like these styles if I choose to make em in 2d...
