A Stormy Night Assignment

Hey there! I'm alive! 

The last months were so crazy that I didn't have a second to upload all the things I've done here. But now that my Christmas break has started, I think it's time to set this blog up-to-date!

The main projects I've been working on, were my thesis film, EL TERROR, and this FX animation assignment called A Stormy Night. Here is the result it was all done on Toonboom Harmony (a wonderful software).



Right below, are the two backgrounds that I had to paint. My teachers wanted me to have a realistic ambiance. I'm quite satisfied with the final result of it all since it's my first time doing a more realistic painting.



And finally, a test gif I've done to see if the transition between the two ambiance was working well enough.
So to conclude, I thought this assignment was pretty awesome! Seriously, I didn't know animating special effects could be this fun! I can't wait to start the FX animation for my short movie!

Have a nice day,
Franco.

THE "JAMES BOND GIRL" WEEKLY TRINQUETTE DRAWING CHALLENGE


I've joined a few months ago the Trinquette publishing challenges and I have to say I'm having alot of fun with their  different themes! The one for this week was James Bond  girl. I've chosen the first bond girl that I've seen in my life: Vesper Lynd (Eva Green) from Casino Royale. I remember the first time I saw the movie I was twelve years old and I totally felt for her smoky eyes

Hope you guys enjoy it!

Have a nice day!

Big Brother Big Sister Storyboard




Hey guys!

I finally had time to post one of my first storyboard assignment! I had to do a commercial. I chose the Big Brothers Big Sisters oganization cause what they do is just freakin’ awesome!



It's this little song that gave me this commercial idea. I think it would fit pretty well with the board.
 Here are the designs of the main characters. I made some simple design to concentrate myself a little more on their story. 





The Final Board

So that is all for now. Hope you like it!

Have a nice day! :-)

One character three different styles!




I was cleaning my USB key yesterday and I founded this old character design assignment I’ve made. I had to create one character, translate this character in three different  animation styles and animate one of the designs. I decided to bring life to the (looney tunes) cartoon design! 
realistic style inspired by The Iron Giant
Cartoon style inspired by the Looney Tunes


I had so much fun doing this!
The animation will soon be posted here! 
Till then have a nice day!

Really weird named kids





Haha! I think I’ve never given such horrible names to my characters. 
Anyway, these two kids are, once again, being badly animated by me! Still trying to improve on that painful but purely fantastic thing that is hand drawn animation!
The animation should be on here by next week.
Till then, have a nice day! :)
