STR100: Assignment #3 -- Comic Book Project

Current roughs I'm working on for Storyboarding. Working off part of a pre-existing script (just like the real comic book artists do it! 8D)

(notes and changes to be made in purple)

Page 1: Captain Taylor's space ship lay burning in a tangled mess on the rugged landscape of a far away planet. Taylor and his second in command Female 2nd Officer Watts cautiously wandered from the crash site.

( - put more plant life in to connect the forest to previous scenes
- put supplies mixed in with the rubble
- spaceship fit inside frame?
- combine 2nd and 3rd middle panels?)

Page 2: A noise echoed from somewhere! The two pilots turned quickly fazer blasters firmly in hand.

'What was that', Taylor exclaimed with fear in his eyes.

'Oh my Gawd.', Watts managed to get out...

(- why are they walking away from the crash site?
- looking for signs of life?
- water and food?
- planetary exploration?)

Page 3: several horrifying creatures crashed out of the trees toward them.

(- make it more obvious that those are trees)

Page 4: The pilots fired their fazer blasters frantically into the attacking aliens with no effect.

'Run for it Watts!', screamed Taylor.

Call out to my friends!

Dear friends,

To anyone who rides the TTC and has collected a shitload of transfers from multiple rides over the course of weeks on end...DON'T THROW THEM OUT!!

Instead, give them to me and I'll turn them into art!

You see, I'm currently experimenting with mixed media painting in conjecture with my Character Design class. Using the caricatures that I'll be drawing in my sketchbook while riding the TTC, I'll later bring them to my easel and paint them up using the transfers as a wallpaper background.

I'm hoping it will have an interesting effect and connect the idea of rider and transit system together.

Could make for a good series. ;)

Sincerely the ever growing Artiste,
~ HeatHer

p.s: I've got a few Oakville and Mississauga transfers lying around too.

ANI100: Ball and Balloon Bounce Assignments

You asked for it, you got it! My animations of the past 2 weeks.

Apologies for the crap quality. Since Seneca is old skool for the 1st years, I recorded these using my digital cam of off the line-tester tv. :\

Life Drawing Assignment #1: Draw two self-portraits. One realistic and one in any comic or animation style you wish. (I chose my own style. ;D)

* I love the fact that my cartoony self looks more like me than my attempt at realism. This just further proves my point that I am, in fact, a cartoon. I do not belong in this world of real...

School approacheth...

With my first day of classes at Seneca just 3 days away now I thought it would be a good idea to draw your attention to two websites that have been fueling my interests in the animation industry and comic production field for the past few months: ReBoot Revival and Zeros2Heroes.
(my screename, ASlightGlitch)

You should definitely check them out.
