As mentioned in my last post, I dusted off the pastel pencils and have been working with them in my sketchbook (along with a pencil or two as well of course : ).
One has expanded from a quick pencil drawing into a more involved pastel pencil image—and although it's taken a bit to do—I'm having a blast with it.
|A Screen Grab From The Video Below - EVE|
Until I can finish that off and scan and post some of the new schtuff, I have another AWESOME very short animation to share with you from France's Gobelins - "School of the Image."
I love what Gobelins' students are doing for projects—and many of their animations include excellent and creatively designed characters, interesting lighting and color choices, and fluid, dynamic movement.
If I had the time and the bucks, it'd be awesome to go there (if my lack of speaking French wouldn't be a problem : ).
Anywho—the animation below is called Eve and is only about 45 seconds long (if you don't count the credits at then end) but has a story that I found engaging and thought provoking—and is a tribute to animator Evelyn Lambart, who collaborated with Norman McLaren on groundbreaking animations/films for the National Film Board of Canada.
Eve, a 2015 student piece, appears to be hand drawn and uses creatively simplified characters and backgrounds—so from an artist/animators standpoint it's very interesting to consider those choices.
Hope you enjoy this too!
Thanks for stopping by.
See you soon with some new artwork.......
