Another bunch of sketches

Today I went to the city again to sketch people. Plus a have been travelling a lot by train this weekend; got a few sketches from there as well (when I didn't work on my current animation assignment). I like sketching stuff, and it is nice to be doing it again. Spring has arrived, and that means a lot to me. My mood goes up and I feel the urge to be creative again.

Sketch Mess

Went to the city the other day with three other girls to sketch the unfortunate people of Viborg. My, I haven't done that for ages. but it was fun. and I plan on colouring some of the sketches with watercolour. Because it has been a while since I have been playing around with real colours and not just photoshop. And because Spring is here, and that should be a colourfull time. :)

My grandmother with my dad in her arms. WIP

Trying to make a portrait of my grandmother. The picture is hanging at my parent's house, and it always makes me happy to see that she has actually been someone else than my old grandmother; she has been young - something I am still not completely able to believe, even now. I just love the original picture. And I hope to do it justice at some point.

Hyena - Project Q

A three week animation. The first week was only spend on planning and rig testing, the two next weeks I animated in MAYA. Morten Bøhne made the model and rigged the thing as well. And matched a plane that fitted the camera and the picture. we were only given 5 seconds, but for my own sake I animated 7. I really wanted to make the walk. Hyenas really walk in this kind of gait. Like giraffes and a few other animals. I worried about this - I don't want people to think I can't make a four legged walk, but our teacher, Jean Ermey, told me not to worry. I went for a very realistic kind of animation, I believe I managed it. THough it still needs a bit of polish.

A crocodile

I just got my "art of kung fu panda" book and got a bit inspired by the wonderful drawings found in that book. drew the sketch for it in my sketchbook, but traced it in photoshop.

more Miyazaki; Porco Rosso

i did the line art when i had the cast on, which meant I had to redo the lines in photoshop. they were way too rough. i love the film Porco Rosso by Hayao Miyazaki. never have I experienced an animation feature with tha much... mood, feel, character. It is a greatly underestimated film. I do not feel that this drawing does it justice though.
