UPA Sketches

Just some copying of these model sheets from early UPA shorts, with varying degress of failure. Magoo is a lot harder than I thought.

Rough Designs

I've started working on a couple of characters for a short (very short) that I'd like to start working on here and there. The story, if you could call it that is starting to come together and I'll start work on the storyboards soon. I have a few modest goals that I'd like to achieve with this short. Foist, there's no dialog but it is going to be set to music. In fact the short is wholly inspired by the song, in title and feel. I'd also like to try and experiment with design a little. Just something different for me, stuff that I haven't tried to draw before. I'd like to stick to an actual production process. Board it first, then work on bar sheets and move on to layout and so on. I tend to do everything scatterbrain. That's probably why I never finish anything. Here's some rough doodles done in short bursts at work or on the train ride to or from work. Oh, the title is "Welcome To The Theatron Animatronique" taken from the song of the same name by Secret Chiefs 3. Here's a live version of the song for those of you (probably everyone) that hasn't heard the song. Trey Spruance rules!!
