In celebration of Highly Animated's 3rd year I'd like to tell you a story. Long time ago(last year) I was working on a big secret project that I hinted here and there and for some time consumed my every waking moment(fun times) well that big sooper project was a portfolio for The WB Reach program where you could be awarded both a scholarship and a internship at Warner Brothers studios( awesome right).
So part of the application was to provide some samples that pertained to my interest in animation; I'm interested in becoming a character designer and a storyboard artist so a did just that. I was already starting to work on my AP art project which was based on Utada's Exodus album so I decided to just create a character based on Utada.
Her look based on her old hair style
|Her name actually came out great because Ada means noble/happy|
At that moment it had been awhile since I drew women and certainly never to this extent(definitely a learning curve)
Definitely wasn't good with the expression sheet(dear god these are hideous) glad I didn't include this
I love movies(can't say that enough) and my favorite part of going to the movies is the trailers so I wanted it to be more of an animated drama so I referenced scenes and camera angles from some of my favorite trailers.
music I chose for the trailer).
Pretty sure it's obvious I didn't get in( I would be fucking bragging about that all day) but I'm truly proud of the material I worked on and the that I tried. This gave me an opportunity to incorporate my way of thinking in to a visual story and push myself at drawing different things(besides a floating head). So again happy anniversary Highly Animated folks.
Hope You Enjoy
