The Wishing Well



BFA has started and we're still on our first project.  This week we had to come up with the well ideation.  I really try to push myself so I do this two rough paintings.  Super hard especially the interior one.  I will try to finish up this two painting whenever I have time.

"Bloom" and "No Robots" Check it out!!!

SJSU's student film
"Bloom" (winter2010 - summer 2011)
 http://bloomanimation.blogspot.com/

"No Robots" (summer 2010)
http://io9.com/5878285/no-robots-a-beautiful-five+minute-film-about-anti+machine-prejudice?tag=short-films

A minor update here.  Above is the link to two great short animated films done by our friends at San Jose State University.  No Robots has won several awards on students film categories.  Bloom is following the same path!  No Robots was written and directed by Kim Knoll and Yanghan Chang.  Bloom was written and directed by Brian Kitsler and Emily Johnstone. 

I wanted to say thanks to my friends / directors who gives me an opportunity to work on these films. (even on "Bloom" I was just a little part of the team, Brian and Emily still kind enough to put my name in the end credit) I considered this is the "first step" and once in my life time experience in my art-related life to work with such talent and great artists in our Animation/illustration program here at SJSU! 

In addition for No Robots, I want to mention and give more credit to Tim Tang and Corwin.  I think they both deserves more credit here, especially Tim.  Those beautiful backgrounds you see in No Robots was art directed by Tim and Corwin.  Tim helped me out a lot when I struggled on my parts.  Thanks man!

Myself and everyone in our team worked so hard on these films, hope everyone enjoy it!
(Notes* you can see background paintings I've done for No Robots in "Older posts". )

Some character designs and paintings from an age ago I found in my hard drive.  Some of them are from the very first time I took visdev class, so they aren't look very good.  I was too shy to post them..but well...

Rough

A rough- redesign of a character I've been working on for Ruben's visdev assignment from last semester. More will come.
