The third assignment for my Color Theory class was to pick a celebrity and create an analogous split complementary painting that tells their story with color. Easy, I know. After failed attempts at the likes of Megan Fox, Natalie Portman, and even Sarah Chalke, I finally came back to reality and chose Steven Spielberg. I found a fantastic picture of him in that famous director pose where they use their hands to frame a shot.

Now that I've finalized the content of my three thesis stories, I can start to focus on them one-by-one. First up: Fuzzy Fury Rescue Friends. This is my 3-D animated feature-length story, and I'm focusing on the climactic twist when we discover that the Unicorn was not actually kidnapped by the Dodo Bird, but was, in fact, constructing an elaborate plan to get the Dodo out of the picture so he could open up the portal to the Land of Imagination!!! Whoa! Below are some sketches of me continuing to figure out the character anatomy and then some presentation storyboards I did of an earlier story moment for this dramatic sequence.

Good news everyone! My hiatus from Blog posting has not been without good reason: I've had to nail down my three story ideas for my Thesis Project. And that "good news" that I mentioned earlier? It's that I've finally nailed them down. :^) The next step is to really start fleshing things out, and I came to a realization that I haven't actually boarded anything in over a year! Yikes! So, I've decided to brush the dust off my Mad Skillz with some short little sequences based on things I find funny and/or have overheard on various Academy of Art Shuttle trips. Shuttle Shorts, they shall be called. Hopefully this will help sharpen my neglected story senses, because this first one is pretty rough...
Sorry. I'm trying not to throw myself all over you.
I'm going to pretend that's because you find me irresistible and not because of the laws of physics.
