Layout work!

My quest is not only to learn photoshop, but also Maya, and layout too. I've normally concentrated on creating character designs and getting proportions right - my books I write are basically one big preproduction plan for animations I want to do one day, so I guess its go figure that most of my drawings are preproduction drawings for my stories! If I can get the hang of creating fine-art pieces with backdrops, I'll be a very happy girl. This is the layout I did for my first year of animation, and was one of the only layouts I have ever done!! I was proud of myself that day; I have a new respect for layout artists that I never really thought about before I tried it myself. Think characters are what I will stick to, though! x

Well this is certainly something new to me! Before i came to university i was a bit of a techno-phobe, living out on a farm like a country bumpkin. All my pictures up until this point had been watercolours or inks, and the world of photoshop and Maya still baffles me now: but no fear! I am trying very hard to learn how to use these things to my benefit :) so ill kick off with my first ever photoshop creation: a superhero, i designed with my little brother. woo!
