My Piranha first storyboard

So here is the My Piranha's first storyboard, it's rough, timing isn't perfect but the overall idea is here!

story moments 02

Here is another cinematic painting I did(90% done). Feel more confident to paint the way I intend to.



Line drawing is always important to me, it gives enough information when I jump to the painting process

My Piranha first layout

Finally it comes to the full painting part! start from the color thumbnails:
I'll choose the button left, since this scene is going to be in the deep rainforest, we won't be able to see much sunlight, mostly are reflective colors from leafs.

clean line drawing
with value

not quite finish yet, it's fun to add the subtitles, looks like watching a film on tv!

story moments

Back to work on the story moments. This time I arrange these in order.


another test of styling

here is another one I did recently. I want to see how it looks with 2d character rendering in watercolor-ish background. It's fun to do the characters this way, first I've never done it before, second, it reminds me again how much I love the approach of 2d animation. I just love the way it looks! Because of the style, it always took me extra hrs. to polish the background(even this one is not 100% done). I'll have a fulling painting soon, very excited.

Since I'm doing everything on photoshop, I'm trying to make it as far away from digital-look as possible. I focus on the technique than make pretty layout, so I wasn't thinking about the composition when I did these(I should)
