Here are some of the drawings I did for the first part of this project:
1. Five perspective drawings were required. I worked in blue animation pencil for these. The church below has 2 vanishing points.
2. Next were composition layouts, these were to be copied from existing animations so we could learn what made a good composition. Below are layouts from Mulan, Princess and the Frog, Beauty and the Beast and 101 Dalmatians.
3. These drawings I were most uncomfortable with, I tried to experiment and practice using Photoshop and also to introduce colour. The requirement was to show atmospheric perspective using trees and foliage. I need to practice creating more definition and depth but I feel this was a good start.
4. Tonal drawings. We had to make 3 of these, the one below I did during a practical lesson and I was pleased with how it came out as I was really thinking about how the light would fall, where the light source was... I've realised from this that lighting is a very important element of backgrounds.
