New post!

Hey all!

Finally done with the semester a few days ago...Here is my final animatic for Art 118, Storyboarding class with Dave Yee. It is by all means not final at all...there's tons to do with it...by first off friggin' moving the frames to a template so it's stable....LOL...Lot's to revise in terms of making it more entertaining...but yea over the summer I hope to touch up on it, and then my Post-Production friend Mark will make the animatic 10x better, hehehehe!

So I won't announce everything I make, but these are my very first items released in FarmVille, so they are very special to me:


Come get your bouncy animals while the Playground Theme is up in FarmVille! :)


And that's about it for now...lots of side projects happening but it'll take some time to get stuff together and post about it.

Stay tuned! :D

"FairyVille" A personal project

So I've been working on a personal project called "FairyVille"...OBVIOUSLY highly influenced by Zynga!!! Woot woot! :D

So this fairy deal was actually something that's been in my head since...since I did the Hallmark workshop, which was...wow when was it? Hahaha! Well ok after I post this I'll look at my archives and pull out my original fairy painting. (EDIT: Ok I have too many archival posts...forget it!! LOL) Been developing it in my head and playing Zynga games just totally made it come together I guess ;).

Now my goal over the summer would be to vector and color all of these suckas! My friend Eric Neto, a programmer, may be interested in Flash programming, so it'll be ready for him to mess around with. I may have to make a User Interface thingy too then.


So in FairyVille you can choose your professions...it's essentially the profession part only from World of Warcraft hahaha!! You will go out and gather things to make and either sell or gift your friends.


You can custom your Fairy...


Choose his/her wings...


Different clothing and accessories...


And stuuufff!! You can tell that the artistic style is very curly and curvy! This will reflect on like pretty much everything in the FairyVille world! :)


More stuff!! Hahaha!


But yea...I'll post more as I draw them... they are usually doodles I do during class or when I'm bored :).

Stay tuned for moooorreee~!! :D

Characters for 118

So we're onto our final stories for 118!
My story briefly is the retelling of Orpheus' trip to the Underworld to bring back his dead girlfriend Eurydice. Only that Orpheus is a famous rock star with a lyre-guitar. He battles Hades and wins Eurydice back.

I will have to revise Hades, he's too similar and friends have suggested to make him much bigger and buffer, and use different shapes language. I was looking at Rob Zombie pictures, and he's definitely not very buff at all hahaha!


This was a back-up plan. The retelling of The Gift of the Magi with 2 homeless children. More "doll-like" so-to-speak I guess.

Anyways more to come soon! I'll see if I can color Orpheus and Hades if I have some spare time...supposed to be vectored and have flat, graphic colors with textures and what-not...


Stay tuned! :)

Stuffs

As promised, here's some stuff I've been working on: finishing up storyboards, making new ones, some sketches done during classes, vector clean-up for an internship, etc etc.

EDIT: Just tried to upload a video of a new storyboard, but it's the one-frame version where it's not timed out. Yea it didn't work out with Blogger's video format. If I have time I'll time it out and post it :).

I'll try to post more diligently like I used to do! :P
























Uh I'm sure I have more...but I some Art History research to do...Hahaha!

Stay tuned! :)

Been forever...

Been forever since I've posted huh? Now that Spring Break started I promise to dump a huge post on just a bunch of random stuff I've been doing: sketches, vector clean up and animation stuff I'm doing for work, storyboards, etc.

For now you can check out http://artoflauralee.blogspot.com for an updated portfolio: it really does some of my most recent stuff.

But of course it doesn't have all the casual sketches I've been doing along the way...so stay tuned!! :)
