I was going to moan and moan about the internet and the royal wedding. But who really needs more of that shit in there life. So, welcome back! I'm hoping this blog will become a nice quiet place for you, away from the horrors of the world. So sit down, take the weight of your feet, and enjoy some bloody good art nonsense!
This last week, I've been working hard to get the animatic for my film in good shape. It is starting to make a lot more sense, but it isn't quite right. There is plenty of work to do to get things just right.
Outside of the animatic, I'm trying to do some R+D to explore how this project might be made. Specifically, I'm interested to discover how I can express the scope and tone of this world, but with aesthetic that works well for independant production. The early concept paintings are just too detailed and glossy to be achievable. So I'm playing with starker imagery and handmade textures as a step forward. The results so far are below.
This is just the start of this exploration. I'll be making a mess with some ink, painting and bleach later this week. So do not adjust your TV sets!
Beyond all of this, I'm also busy marking and listening to Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino on loop. Everyone and their mum seems to be hating this new album, but I've been loving it. It grows on you.
Until next week, stay safe and be good!
