We've started a new project in Storyboarding, and this time we got to choose our groups and make up our own story. I'm in a group with Stephanie Marshall, Claire Gordon, and Jack Hattori. It is going to be awesome. Jack came up with this story idea about a young girl during the Italian Renaissance who creates a Da Vinci style glider and flies with it. These are some of the concept sketches I did. This man, Maestro, is the one who repeatedly tries to discourage the girl, Valeria, from trying to fly because she's too young and it's too dangerous.
And I went to the Bean Museum again to try to get a better grip on how lions look from more unusual angles.
During my Bible as Literature class the other day, I decided to try something new and draw with my calligraphy pens, focusing exclusively on value. It was really fun. I definitely need to try out new stuff more often.
Dave Lowery gave a presentation here yesterday. It was pretty awesome. He's been in the film industry forever. He's worked on everything from Willow to Jurassic Park to Indiana Jones to Shrek to Iron Man. You can see him pitching his storyboards on the special features of the Shrek DVD. He's currently working on Iron Man 2. And his face just begged to be caricatured.
