My senior thesis character is final. FINAL, I tell you. Final. Don't make me change it. I'm talkin' to you, Ric.

The different colors are for different parts of the film, her name is Lily, and I think I like that pattern the best for her tights.

Oh, and these happened:

updated: true colors

here's the first test page of my color script! I'm trying a few things out so this probably isn't the final color. Most likely I'll have someone who is not colorblind to help me out. for obvious reasons. questions?! comments? outbursts of emotion?!

update: 10/26/11 I changed a lot of the colors. My full script is a lot longer but you'll have to see it in person. I'm not giving anything away on the internetz!

I've never been more impressed with Flash than right now. I was attempting to export some images to use for my business cards for CTN, the files were huge, and this is what Flash gave me. I'm in love! They look super badass! I wish I could take full credit! Click on the images for close-up badassery!

My bio-engineer roommate and I made a 48-hour film last weekend at calarts! The theme was "cactus." Our film is ridiculous, as all 48 hour films should be. Enjoy!

See a film about a cactus here!

Happy Halloween Weekend! Enjoy some images of scared children:

Actually, these are panels of my animatic. But I've been scaring a lot of children this weekend (and in general) so I thought they would be appropriate.

art garfunkel

thumbnails for my fashion midterm. I can't decide which compositions i like the best. this post has nothing to do with art garfunkel.

edit: Final comps!

paul mccartney

here is my film character. this post has nothing to do with paul mccartney.
also, I'm colored blind.

Edit: She doesn't look like this anymore. Apparently she looks like a trampy, washed out 9-year old. I'm going for a cute, colorful 5-year old. Hmmmmm

This is Delilah! She likes long walks on the beach, cute platform pumps, and makeovers.

character dump

Here marks the first post of my senior year! My thesis film, currently untitled, is about a girl being chased by a monster. Have some character studies.

I want my film to have a "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" vibe, so that jewel of a show has been my source of entertainment for the last few weeks. Having a little girl as my main character means I'll also be using "Powerpuff Girls," "The Mighty B," "Lilo and Stitch," and "Cats Don't Dance" for reference.

Haven't settled on a monster yet. But he's the general idea.

These last girls are a lot closer to a final design, I think. More specifically the bottom right. The curls will be challenging to animate, but I'm excited about it.

Questions? Comments? Outbursts of Emotion?

work in progess painting

I've been working on a new painting! It won't be done for at least another month, a lot's going on in my life. But here's a glimpse of what I've been working on! I'll post the final eventually.

stage three

stage four

It's come a long way so far, but it still needs a lot of work. Any questions? Comments? Suggestions? Outbursts of emotion?

los novios

One of my dearest friends maria is getting married this weekend, and I'm fortunate enough to be one of the only two white girls at the wedding. :)

I made this for her, with hopes that she only ever has reason for it to bring her happiness.

Love you, mamacita.

junior year

I just completed my junior year of college! This semester I realized how much I need to work on personal stuff, so here you are. Also...you may notice the format of my blog changed! I created "Miss Emilord" as the hostess character for my website that I'm building (coming to the interwebz near you May 2011), and decided to feature her on my blog as well. I hope you like her! AND I decided to create a deviantart account. I'm going to try to become better at posting on both. But no promises.

A still from the junior film I directed. Look's good, no? We're going to send it to festivals, so until then this is all you get. :)
