itsaTrunkMonkey!!!




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...
