Day 7 of New Work

Here is a background shot of the cliff in the waterfall scene.

I started painting a set of curtains for an office shot. It's too muddy and needs more contrast, but it's a start.

Day 6, The Day That Skipped 5

I did not do any work yesterday. Sad, I know. I did however finish the waterfall background tonight.

Christmas is upon us so no work will be done for 2 days. Hoping to crank out more backgrounds and finalize more designs come next week.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Day 4 Continued Work

Not much to show but I spent the entire evening on working and reworking these rocks, at one point deleting about 45 mins worth of work because I didn't like the result.

Day 3 More WIP Backgrounds

I took the weekend off to chill but got right back into production this evening.

This is the start of a closeup of the grass and water.

This is a shot of what will be an animated waterfall.

Hope to work on them both more tomorrow.

Day 2 of Work

I worked on the grassy field background a bit more, adding in more details and got it to a place where it looks pretty good. I'm happy with the result.

Another shot of the grassy field, but will be used for a closeup.

Ideally one background a day would be good, but I'm not setting any goals other than to consistently put work into the project, alleviating the workload come next year. No doubt there will be some exploratory color designs in the coming days which will slow down production, but it must be done to achieve the look I am striving for.

25 Days of Robiety

Not quite, but sort of. Over Christmas vacation, I plan on getting some major things done for Robiety. In an effort to maintain motivation and keep production going, I will be posting what I have worked on during the day and show any progress that I've made.

I have tried painting a few different backgrounds in different styles, trying to decide upon which fits the movie best. This is what I came up with for today:

It's not complete but it's a step in the right direction. I'm happy with how it's looking right now and if I don't hate it tomorrow, then it's probably a keeper.
