After all the Feedback I got from fellow artists, I decided to expand the negative space inside the Kid's room to give a character more motion around the room. I also redesigned the elements at the focal point to make it more catchy. As well as the redesigning, I used more little girls room elements to make it more girly and cutie.
I believe After Chaplin, Oliver Hardy was the funniest actor I have ever seen. In spite of his look, he could do every thing like Wile E. Coyote in his films. We have to remember that usually doing cartoon gags is much much harder in Live action. I never forget the way he walked, screamed and played with his ties. He is the Character. So I decided for celebrity study, use him as my character for cartoony action.
There are only two things you can get from drawing layouts. A) It can be so frustrating. B) It can be so fun that you can't stop working on it. I happened to have the both experiences as a matter of fact. I did two drafts of the kid's room layout. Still gonna need some fixing on the negative spaces and redesigns on some of the objects.
Doing turn around of a character is one of the most important process in animation business but it's not as easy as it looks. Every single part of a character - considering the balance and the weight of a body - must be in the right place.And the top of all things I said, the Structure is what you have to be really really careful with or your character is gonna look uninteresting and undefinable. The Structure is everything in character design.
It's funny that I'm not photographer but I like good pictures. So every time I see something that makes me feel great about it, I just take pictures of it. Since San Francisco is my temporary home now, those pictures are the good ones I took from the city.
This time I decided to paint something beautiful and surreal about love and happiness but only in gradation between Black and White. Because I thought there's much more emotions resides in Black and White Pictures. Love doesn't have to be colorful. You can feel it even in darkness.
It feels great to create something you didn't know at first. It's all about unconsciousness of mind. Something you liked but you were not aware of it. It's the most impressive discovery in the human nature.
