Head on cardboard

Sometimes you work with what you have and recently I've been ordering a lot things from the web, so I have tons of cardboard. This was a quick doodle on cardboard with acrylic and touched up in photoshop.

After I get the shapes correct, I start working on details. The left arm was bothering me.  

So I put some armor on him. and pants.

After the drawing is done I start coloring it. This is the quick and dirty way of coloring in photoshop, not my preferred way, but it works. Using adjustment layers and overlays.
And there you have it, the done drawing, I hope you enjoyed it. I'll do more of these.

more on the sketch

More work on ear guy. I'm still thinking if he should wear pants, or no pants. I'm thinking of his back story. Usually that helps with the drawing. To know his motivation. I'm thinking he's a former wrestler turned post apocalyptic hunter. Maybe he was a delivery guy turned fur wearing guy. with a sword he found in the museum, after the world turned upside down. And he's wearing a headband because he grew up in the 80's and headbands were really really cool back then.

so it turns out i was too busy to post any updates on the 72 hour shoot out. good news is. i finished it. barely.
yes, it was very diy. and it was all filmed in greenscreen. note to self, never do that again. especially if time is an issue. it took forever to render.

first update.

Ok so the theme is "two faces" I started writing the screenplay when it was announced on twitter. so from 8pm to 1:31 am I've been writing it. My story is about a man and his friends/coworkers being interviewed. Why does he want to go to a one way trip to Mars. Since my strength is in graphics and visuals, I intend to work on some of the effects before Saturday's shoot.

72 hour shootout

Hey there

I'm doing something called the 72 hour shootout this weekend. The Asian American Film Lab http://www.asianamericanfilmlab.com/  does a competition every year where film makers have 72 hours to write, shoot, edit and upload a 5 minute short. It starts tonight, They will announce the theme at about 8pm and I'll start coming up with ideas at 8:05. My script should be ready by Friday afternoon. After the script is complete, I'll do simple storyboards and gather my equipment and my crew. Filming should take place saturday morning and afternoon, depending on how much special effects is needed, I will also be filming that.  Saturday night into sunday morning I'll be editing the film and uploading it sunday night.
Well that's the plan.
I will be posting updates as I begin.
