new color developments

here is the final color comp for saia. thanks anita!

i fixed the full shots with the new saia colors as well

Saia model WIP

here is my progress so far on Saia. she should have been done by now, but I've had to tend to my friend who some of you know is in the hospital.

She kind of looks like an alien right now, because she doesnt have any hair, but she will look much better once i give her a wig, hehe.

Dragon Teefus

Here is the dragon with the teef. i finished it actually earlier this week, but i still dont have internet at my apartment, so i had to upload it at school.

he's a nice dragon, so i designed him to be more like a cow or a horse, very docile and eats mostly grass and flowers, so i gave him some from incisors to scrape bark off trees or to pull flowers out by the roots, but the rest of his teeth are molars to grind the grass, flowers, and barks into digestible mulch.

Saia's Friend Animatic 1

Here is the first pass of the animatic for my project. I think the timing feels pretty good right now (maybe a few minor tweaks a little later in the week). There's no music yet because my friend hasn't started writing it yet. He was waiting for my lazy ass to finish this first, hehe.

Dragon model

here is the model for the dragon. i originally started it last quarter for my character modeling class, and did the finishing touches this quarter. it gave me a well-needed head start for this quarter.

Character Designs

Here are the two leading characters: Saia and her Dragon!
The dragon is already being built in 3d (just a few more steps to go!), and i will begin saia probably after i get the storyboards tightened up and ready to shoot.

Saia's Friend - Day 1

Okay, this is it. This is the beginning of the end. My senior project. I will be posting here weekly, and as I make every significant progress on my project (as well as any follies I encounter) as a diary of how it went and what I learn. This is really exciting, but I'm also nervous. I hope it turns out well!

Pitch - Saia's Friend
No one wants to be around when your parents are arguing, especially when it's all the time. That's how it was for Saia one night when she decided she'd rather wander in the field outside her house than dodge the crossfire inside. On this particular night, however, Saia got more than a fresh breath of air, she got a dragon for a friend.

You can view my original animatic from a year ago which I am basing this project on. I will be redoing the animatic with the updated character designs and retiming some of the scenes, but you can expect it to be about the same.
