"Mist-Covered Mountain" - By Heather L. Gilbraith
Pencil and Photoshop CS5.
Another school assignment, but one I’m actually proud of! :) Used a Scottish Gaelic song performed by the Rankin Family entitled "Chì Mi Na Mòrbheanna" for inspiration. It was drawn on Bristol paper with ebony pencil, then brought into Photoshop and coloured. Most of the work happened in Photoshop, to be honest.
The assignment was like this: We had to make an illustration that would serve as an inside spread for a vinyl LP, so 24” x 12”, based or inspired by a song, and using only three different colours. The three colours I chose were purple, orange, and turquoise blue. I’m not sure if there’s enough of a narrative implied, but I’m having fun imagining why this woman is here with her dog and what’s going through her mind.
There are a lot of things going on in this image that are new to me, but I enjoyed doing it. I hope you like it, too! And of course, comments and constructive criticism are always welcome. :)
My final storyboard assignment animatic. We had to introduce a character in 16 shots. While this includes some of the worst drawings I’ve ever done, I’m still proud of it; it moves! It’s like a little movie or something! That’s so cool! :D
Hope you like it! Apologies for the lack of sound.
Some old sketches . Silly.
Oh goodness, what I wouldn’t give for a Windstone Editions duck dragon sculpture. These are excellent, Melody!
Aaaaand here’s the finished Count Duckula storyboard exercise!
It’s certainly not perfect, and I’d love to spend more time on it if I could, but I gave up my weekend for this thing and I have other homework I need to do so it’s staying the way it is for now.
Still, I’m quite proud of it. :) I like storyboarding a lot. Maybe next time I’ll leave them as sketches instead of inking them, though… that took so much time.
It’s based on this episode: S03E07 (The clip I used starts at 3:08 and goes until 3:54)
My latest storyboard assignment, all finished up. Dang, it was a lot of work, and it totally doesn’t look like it, haha! Anyway, story, character designs and shooting script are by my partner in this assignment, Lilrenald, I just drew out the boards for her.
I was a little hesitant to post these, since storyboards aren’t usually examples of my best work, but I am super interested in storyboarding as a possible career, so I might as well share what I have! I’m hoping to get better and faster at these with more practice, these 18 shots took me way longer than they should have.
Comments and criticism would be greatly appreciated for next time I work on something like this. :)
They were drawn, inked and coloured in Manga Studio 5, using a board template provided by my teacher.
I had two choices tonight. Do homework or draw Suzie and Jon sitting on a giant pink dildo. I think I made a pretty good decision.
THIS IS AMAZING
Lauren you’re so awesome– and totally a bit tumblr famous now, too. ;) Good job!
From a month ago, but I forgot to upload these so I figured I would while I’m at it. :)
All of these things can be found in beautiful BC! I was inspired by mid-century posters and hand guides.
Anna - “Frozen” fan art by Heather L. Gilbraith
Manga Studio 5 and Photoshop CS5
I went and bought myself a tablet monitor (a Yiynova MSP19U+, to be precise; eeee!) and oh gosh, that thing is AMAZING. I got my first chance to sit down with it and play around this evening. This is what I made! It’s also my first real piece of Frozen fan art. Finally!
Man, working with an actual pen on the screen is amazing! I’ll probably have more to say about it later; for now, it’s bed time and I must sleep! Enjoy this little drawing of Anna, hopefully I’ll have more non-schoolwork things to share with you soon… I can’t wait to sit down and play with this tablet more!
