Franklin Park Conservatory

Yesterday I had the opportunity to draw the plants and trees at the Franklin Park Conservatory. It was a really nice place, I'm glad I finally got the chance to go. I still struggle a lot with drawing plants, but practicing is making me improve, at least!

Gravity and Ponyo!

So this weekend I visited Naomi, Noemi, and Mandy's apartment and got to finally meet their pets. Unfortunately the cats were hiding for a lot of the time, so I didn't get to draw them much. But Gravity and Ponyo were nice enough to pose for me.

Quick Characters!

Been doing my daily characters!

Spicco is a very outgoing guy who is always talking, to just about everyone, even to the point where he will annoy them. He loves to annoy people and make up jokes that only he and his "son" will laugh at hysterically. He loves voice acting, which he is very bad at. He also has a passion for basketball, and bonded with his old best friend Topaz over sports. He has become very close with The Guy Who Talks Like This, eventually learning how to teleport from him.

Dorby is a creature from Biggert City, who enjoys digging holes. He is often seen hanging around with Lappy, causing mischief together and moving about.

Jessie is a girl who is not very talkative, but she follows her group wherever they go. She does not talk out that much unless she is screaming something as a group with her friends. She has strong feelings for Ben, and will follow him wherever he goes.

Big Character post!

Lots more characters from this week! I feel like I haven't posted these in awhile, but I have been doing my daily character drawings.

Uather is very outgoing and enjoys watching spoilers. He is a very curious young raccoon who is always aware of his surroundings. He likes to sing and is the leader of his band, The Sp00kz. Uather likes shouting out and carries a gun with no bullets around with him, "breathing clearly" with it. The orphans sometimes call him BreatheClear.

Ventanna is not very talkative at all. He speaks little, but has much on his mind. He shares only his thoughts with Araylee and even what he says to her is very limited. He believes in keeping to himself in order to eliminate putting burdens on others. He wields guns and is very good at killing and sneaking around. Once he splits up with Araylee, he becomes a legend that joins the Dusty Dimes for the sole purpose of killing MadRat, one of the leaders of a rival gang.

Pixy is a very stuck up creature and is obsessed with herself. She is usually cold to just about everyone besides Cimc, who she has feelings for. Pixy enjoys tormenting her enemies and loves to see them suffer. She is very attached to Cimc, and will do almost anything for him, even though she tries to act cool on the outside. She does not enjoy dealing with anyone but Cimc.

Jaboo is a very irresponsible father who is always found drunk or in a gang fight. He does not take very good care of his kids and offers them drinks, even when they were underage. Since he is often drunk, he yells a lot and is very angry. Although, his temper does not nearly compare with his wife's.

Glenda is a very old woman who owns a bath house. She goes to bed very early and if waken up, she can become quite cranky. Glenda does not tolerate any goofing around and is very strict. She is often found yelling at children and becomes annoyed very easily. It is quite rare that she is friendly or welcoming to guests of her bathhouse.

Slyro is the brother of Gyro, and has a very small crowd of kids. This creature is always fairly calm and does not like a lot of noise. Slyro is a Bird-In-Training who knows his kids very well and will usually try to please them in any way he possibly can. Although, when he is angry, he can be very vicious and dangerous.

Lots of Storyboards

So I finally got around to storyboarding my entire prologue and first chapter of my Thesis. It took a really long time, but it is 83 boards total. They're super rough and really just to get a feel of what these environments look like and where characters will be placed on the screen, but yeah! I'm gonna post some sketches before the boards though.

Character line-up!

Sketches of Pubby. Playing with his shapes some more.

Some basic expression tests of Ralphie.

Layout of the Raggers' Apartment.

These are the storyboards!
