Crossed My Mind 299

Work in progress shot with the background i was working on earlier. I’m being productive and stuff.


Rough animation from a shot in Scene 5. One of my favorite shots because the bear was so fun to animate. I can’t wait til I get to clean this one up.


Work in progress background from my thesis film, Teddy and the Bear. The film is coming along extraordinarily well. I have currently over half of the rough animation done and most of the backgrounds for that first 60% of the movie in a rough state like this one.
This shot is from the 6th scene in the film (there are 7 in total) and it’s part of a montage sequence. In this part of the sequence Teddy teaches the Bear how to properly fisticuff, which means of course you have to go to the highest mountain you can find and fight in the middle of a blizzard. 
My background design skills could still use a lot of improvement, but it’s amazing the subtle improvements I’m making in terms of skill. It makes me want to keep at it, in the hope that by the time I have a new project to do, I’ll be even better.
If anyone has any questions about my film, or has helpful suggestions for ways I could improve my backgrounds, send me a message! I love the feedback. View Larger

Work in Progress background on my thesis. Still trying to get better at background design. It’s not my strong suit, but something I like and something I want to be good at so I keep at it in the hope that the more I work the more my skills will improve.
With this I’ve been primarily working on the foreground, and haven’t really worked on the background much yet. View Larger

Another in progress shot, this one from the first scene, which is a funeral.
