Sorry for so much neglect to my blog, time has just flown by and things have been so busy! I ended up working every single day the 4 weeks before I came back to Ringling. I came back to Ringling a week and half early so that I could be an orientation leader which was a really wonderful experience. Classes have started with a bang, we're animating all of the time, living in the labs, and just getting our hands on everything! It's a lot of fun, but just busy all of the time!
For our first concept project, we had to create character designs for a noble and kind dolphin and a mischievous monkey. I would like to revisit these one day and redesign them, but for now here they are!
We also had to paint the iconic moment of the story, when the dolphin realizes that the monkey is a human. Storyboarding is really interesting and I'm enjoying it so far, but it's a lot of work!
