Pickle & Peanut Storyboard Test

About six months ago I tested for a new show airing on Disney XD called Pickle & Peanut.  This was my first storyboard test.  I learned a lot from doing the test and hope to do more tests in the future.  Storyboarding is quite challenging, but it's fun coming up with gags and being creative with the camera.  I find myself wanting to be more cinematic than what you'd see on TV and of course it isn't until after you've done the test that you see everything that's wrong with it.  If you compare it to the pilot episode below, you can see they cut out a lot of what happens in the second half of the episode.

CGMA - Environment Design - Week 08

Here's my final piece for the Environment Design course I've been taking.  I enjoyed the class and had a lot of fun developing this piece.  My teacher, Aaron Limonick, demoed over my piece and gave me a better direction, and inspiration, as to where to take it next.  Here's what I ended up with.

CGMA - Environment Design - Weeks 6 & 7

Our last week of the class is here and we're working on our final piece.  Here's some more work from the previous weeks that I did to come up with my final composition.  The piece below is a rough idea where I'm taking things using shape and color.  I still have a lot of work to do.  I wanna do something graphic and add texture to make it feel more real.

CGMA - Environment Design - Weeks 4 & 5

Here's some of the work I've done for my class over the past 2 weeks.  We've started working towards our final project.  Week 4 we did some exploratory composition ideas. Week 5 I explored of one those ideas a bit more and did some color studies.  This week I'll be doing more development work and exploring more of the environment.

CGMA - Environment Design - Week 3

This week we had to come up with 3 compositions and do more visual development work.  I could have spent a week on each individual one, but with only one week and D23 on the weekend, this is as much as I could finish.  I would like to take these concepts further.  The last idea was rushed.  I would like to explore that concept more and flesh it out better.
