I've been MIA for a while now, both because of my current job and also because for the last several months I've had the privilege of attending a couple of Character Design Workshops at the Animation Collaborative. During this time I've gotten to work with two really talented Instructors Dan Holland and Chris Sasaki who combined have worked some 13 years at Pixar as well as other studios. These workshops have turned out to be a creative goldmine for me. Most importantly, I've learned let go of some tropes that I'd desperately been hanging on to since I begun my Animation/Illustration schooling. Below are a few examples of exploratory sketches I've been working on:
There definitely will be more to come as I complete my portfolio for this final workshop. Additionally, you may now check out my most current portfolio. It's still a work in progress since I'll most likely be incorporating my newest and strongest work in the next months.
Thanks for looking!
