#11 & recollection


A continuation of my 30 day challenge. #11 is my favorite food; really it's making me hungry just painting it. about an hour with reference. The second painting is also painted with reference; it's a challenge painting made with a group of friends to do an illustration every week based on a word. This week's word was recollection. The next one will be chimera.

Edith and the Bear

Edith and The Bear Official Trailer from hillary bradfield on Vimeo.

This semester i worked on a short movie project by Hillary Bradfield. It's a cute movie about a girl and her bear. It was a great privilege to work on this movie. I learned a lot about animating, movie production pipeline and working with a big group. It was a great experience. I animated a scene, cleaned up a couple, inked and colored.

The movie will be premiered at the end of the year showcase at San Jose State University on Wednesday 22nd starting at 9:30. Don't miss it!

spring semester animations ( & some drawings on the side!)

this semester I took a bit more than I chew. Now that my art classes finals are over I can breathe a little more than before. The first video is my final reel for my 3d animation class; this reel consists of the poses that we have to make each week for the class, then quick studies and then the animations. My second test is our traditional animation final. The test requirement is to make our characters sit down on a chair. Triple Threats is the group that i got assigned to; and they helped to push me to make my test better. It was really great to be a part of something that pushes you to be better.

this semester i am also helping my friend to make her short film project that became a class. I animated a scene, cleaned it up, ink it and color. I learned a lot this semester. my brain hurts a lot and sometimes i didn't sleep much, but it was a great semester for learning.

of course i miss painting a bit so i take tiny breaks to paint. I should've painted more in my spare time though.

onwards to summer!
