Style Exploration

Hi guys!
These last 2 months I haven't exactly been updating my blog alot, above the reason why! The images above were done as part of the online CGMA masterclass 'Environment sketching for production', as instructed by the wonderful Armand Serrano. This class basically took me and my fellow classmates through a fictive animation production, including coming up with your own script, creating mood & styleboards,  rough sketching, storybeats, switching styles (so much fun!), and much much more.

My story synopsis:

When the Mars Rover finally returns to earth, he brings with him a botanic plague that may cause the end of the world.

During a live television broadcast on CNN, NASA proudly shows samples of Marsian rock. The broadcast goes haywire when one of the presenters accidentally knocks over a glass of water, which is quickly absorbed by the  alien rock, causing it to explosively grow botanic tentacles. 

In a matter of minutes the whole TV studio is overgrown with weird looking veins & plants, which is only the start of a turn of events that may lead to the end the world as we know it.

Yep, and that's why I never became a writer :)
Anyway, I had alot of fun, learned alot, and met some great people. I want to thank Armand for his amazing class, I could not have wished for a better instructor.

More stuff coming up!
