Mino's photo shoot

Some glamor shots of Mino doing some dramatic poses. Posing this guy was pretty fun. These shots are to pad my portfolio blog, which is still under construction. Any ideas of what else he could be doing?

shadowy heads

I'm working on getting a good solid head shape for the background crowd models for our Senior Film project, so these are some of the sketches I've been spitting out. I'm moving towards more simplified shapes and structures, so any advice would be helpful. K THX BYE!

These were for Advanced Storyboarding, the advertising assignment. We were tasked with portraying the "product" as desirable and necessary, in this case the "product" being the monkey stored in the trunk. I used squirrel monkeys as reference (cute!). I borrowed heavily from ADAM FORD's technique, which he does much better than I...

Basically, you start off with your base colors, through on some fleshy tones (he calls it "banding"), and throw on a "key" light (or just the main light source). After which you can add an "ambient" light, a "fill" light, or a "rim" light... I didn't add any of those... Last of all is the "ambient occlusion" pass, where you darken the areas where light is being blocked by things closer to the camera/viewer. Just say "ambient occlusion" when talking about lighting and people will be impressed, mostly because they won't know what you're talking about...
