I'm not dead I've just been writing a lot lately on the story these four test pages are from. I have some other pages I did for it but I don't like them as much, and the story changed a little and yeah. I'm still debating to leave everything BW or go full color. There's a certain charm to stark BW but color is so lush and juicy.

Some old stuff from foundations, charcol, chalk pastels, colored pencil. The preist man and the scratchboard were a little more recent. The scratchboard was a practice assignment to get used to the medium and the professor gave us images by Tatsuyuki Tanaka to copy. It was fun, I used a fondue fork.

I decided to make Fetch a short comic to work out some shot problems I was having in the animation. I used them for coloring assignments. The first 4 pages were colored in Photoshop using the CMYK channels method, which I found I didn't care for because I felt too limited on the tonal range I could achieve. Pages 5-8 were colored using layers in RGB.
Environment design is something I wish I had more schooling in. Scad tends to gloss over it in favor of character work. The color sketches are backgrounds from my short film "The Forest." They're just sketches right now, I hope to polish them a little more for the final version of the film this Spring.
