I painted this for my little cousin for his Christmas present this year. He's nuts about underwater stuff and fish and marine life, so that's what inspired the theme.

Advanced Storyboard and Layout

These are the products of my last formal class with Nancy Beiman: Advanced Storyboard and Layout. I'm very much interested in art direction so I enjoyed this class immensely. It was time consuming and a lot of work, but here are my color sketches, storyboards, leveling assignment complete with proper layering and camera directions, tonal background, 2-field pan arranged in the same manner as the leveling assignment, and colored background with a black and white tonal test.

Alternative Frame by Frame

This is the final culmination of the work I have done in a pixelation class I took this fall. Our projects ranged anywhere from stop-motion, time lapse, musical synchronization compositing, and even a mix of live action pixelation and 2-D animated elements. All projects were shot with either a PD-170 or my macbook pro and compiled using Framethief.

Presents for People

A friend of mine asked me to draw her a picture to put on her wall, so I did. I forgot to bring my scanner home from school, so I used this opportunity to try my hand at a drawing created completely in photoshop. So here it is....I think I'm mostly done with it anyway......

Final Glass Project from Barcelona

For this project, I cut around 24 panes of glass the same dimensions, and drew on them as if I were working on an animation. Also, for the splash and the various parts of the background, I etched in details on different layers so you would get a 3D effect as if the world existed in depth within the glass. The overall effect was very interesting and I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Pablo from gunslingers19 and Vimeo.Here it is folks. The post you've all been waiting for. Here is the product of about 11 weeks of work. Everything in an animation production process: pre-production, production, post, and sound all in 10 weeks. Ridiculous? I think so, too. Anyway, here it is!

1-Quarter Layouts

It took me a while, but here are the layouts for my 1-Quarter.

Character Design Work

Here is the culmination of most of everything I've done in Nancy Beiman's character design class. Probably some of the best work I've done here at RIT. I will periodically add more to this post as I find them :-p. This consists of: a character created from 6 random descriptors pulled from an envelope, a caricature of a teacher we had when we were young who we then turned into an animal, our random creature posed in gestures drawn from Charlie Chaplin films, pages from our sketchbooks, tonal drawings made of a faceted head which were then pushed and pulled into caricatures by distorting the different planes of the face, model sheets of one of the characters from our previous assignments, characters created for the rhyme "Tisket-a-Tasket, characters in a style inspired by another artist, and finally a maquette of one of our characters.
