New Animation Pre-visuals

Ahoy, all! It's been a while, but I've been keeping busy, and I'm happy to announce that the wife and I's collaboration project is slowly coming to fruition in the form of an animated trailer. That's right, there's a trailer...cause our story is so epically awesome that it warrants one. The following are screenshots from our pre-visual clip or animatic. I'm currently working on all the final animation.

Lolo Polaroid

Here we have a polaroid of Pachechi and her grandfather pinned to an old map. "A map of what?" you ask...you'll see.

Pirate Crew

A shot of an infamous pirate crew that our heroes encounter. Friends or foes? Not sure yet.

Sea Monster

Oh snap, it's a sea monster! No high seas adventure is complete without sea monsters. So that's what I got for you. I'll be releasing more screen shots and sketches as we progress. Stay tuned.

Service with a Smile

Service With A Smile?

I had to create an animation for the virtue of “Service,” as in sacrificially serving others. I instantly thought of this amazing French restaurant my wife and I ate at for our anniversary. Their service and food was excellent! My favorite two dishes were the duck and the dessert. I can’t remember specifically what they were called, but they were top notch! Unfortunately the place closed down recently, however the memory of our experience there will live on. This illustration was a simple concept piece of what the animation would look like.
