30 Minute Speedpaints and Update

"When you feel good, paint. When you feel bad, paint. Painting always soothes the artist's soul."

The Promise

"Let's see how far we can go, as long as we move forward one step at a time . . . "

The Long Journey

'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”
― Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

An insight into my process for color scripting as an art director. Camera angles, perspectives, color, and lighting must support the storytelling. When in doubt, pinpoint mood, then go for color & lighting. Try different color combinations in your early trial and experimentation stages, you never know and might be surprised by new and interesting combinations.
