Environments: Junkyard, Journey, Palace




Yes! First week where I actually accomplished what I said I was going to do.  15 rough thumbnails of 3 different environments.

For the past 2 weeks, I kept on missing my quota. For the past couple of weeks, I've been struggling with the my concept, and I was kind of lost.  I didn't finish my story, and I didn't finish my characters.  I was trying to do too much at the same time.

It probably helped that I tried really hard.  And I actually tried.   I also think borrowing 5 Pixar books from the library: Art of Monsters Inc, Art of Wall-e, Art of Finding Nemo, Art of Finding Nemo, The Pixar Touch - helped inspire me.  I'll have some refined greyscales next week. Stay Tuned folks. (btw - yeah, I know some of these thumbs look really amateurish Julius, but I think I've gotten better as I kept on going, so I'm pretty happy.  If you have any tips or tricks, I would appreciate any of them. :)

  2. 3, 4, 5, 10 are nice. a lot of interesting shapes there. a lot of the others are either too focused on details (like giving meaning to the shapes), too flat, or too simple (shapewise) like the first castle looks like an office building. i dont read castle.
