* Art Things From Tracy L Harris

I dispose of you, art bunny.

Look at this illusion of organization I’m presenting :) it’s much easier to make pretty presentations when you don’t have 100,000 other things to do!

Images 1-4: My character design stuff of Morgan (that came out of a continual design/style bounce-back-and-forth between myself an Luke Coleman, plus input from Tony Tarantini and DQ, who taught me some useful design science) 

Image 5: Finalized background style/colour example I provided to the group (derived from style/colouring examples initially provided by Yu Su and Terra Zhang). 

Image 6: Tired art student takes a break and makes a film menu system.  JRPG fans should recognize it.

Character design isn’t exactly my forte (I like animation and layout) but I had a particular affinity to Morgan, so I worked really, really hard trying to do this (sometimes banging my head against the wall over it).  I made the mistake of not wanting to insult the artistic intelligence of my group mates and didn’t make enough instructions, so I ended up having to do a bunch of random ‘how to’s after the design pack was done.  Lesson learned: MORE INFORMATION.  ALL OF THE INFORMATION.  Never too much information.  It is not insulting to your peers to provide them with all kinds of potential information.  It means less fixing later.  There was this running theme all semester about “you don’t know what you don’t know until you need to know it” (or very similar to that, I don’t have Tony’s proverb on hand).  I didn’t know that people needed to know these things until they asked me for it or until it was done wrong.  And now I know.  Hundreds of grey hairs later, I know LOL!  Next time I’m in a similar position, I will be far more prepared :)

Ooo film stuff finally. 

From our group film, Wischief.  Some finalized screencaps from a few of the scenes that I did the animation/BGs for (except cap #2, that’s Andrew’s BG!).  No video yet because of Reasons, but I’ll post some production works and the like soon (tomorrow?) ^^

Did any of my followers happen to attend the screening?! (read: did you manage to fit into the auditorium it was so full).  I’m curious to know what people thought of the films :D

Next in the “I’ve returned to the internet after surviving third year!” uploads is stuff from my last Life Drawing portfolio!

Pastel-y

We were asked to take a life drawing pose and compose a piece where in we fuse in elements of an artists style that we like/admire.  I chose Fabien Mense, who has a very lovely style that I love staring at.  I didn’t quite catch his look entirely the way I wanted, but I hope I got something.  It’s definitely different from my normal locked-to-line flat colouring I tend to do :)

I keep posting nice stills from the film, so here’s some super funky inbetweens (and an extreme!) because funky inbetweens are fun XD

An overdue life drawing post!  I like pastels :)

#5 got on the wall!  I’ve never gotten anything from my life drawing portfolios on the wall before ♥

Film-ish screen cap! 
Two minor tweaks I need to make lol

Bunny Biker, now with colour!

I don’t normally re-blog here, but one of my roommates is a crazy person who draws the weirdest/neatest monster/creature things :D more people should check out her stuff!

Film gifs! (pre-colour adj)

Spent so much time cleaning up this weekend.  I have one more big scene to clean up… but that’ll be another day.  I think I should start colouring BGs.

Tracy, the busy film manager, has returned momentarily to tumblr! 

Some group film animation samples I took with me to my co-op interviews.  Apparently they went over well :)

They have since been updated, but they’re updated every other day because of inbetweening, tiedowns, tiedowns, cleanup, tiedowns and other types of required animation OCD lol

Just thought I’d share the way good Canadian students work on the weekend… with Olympic hockey on the projector.  Congrats to Finland!

Some fun things from a life drawing assignment :)

I made 3 master layouts and got 9 reuses out of them.  Reuse ninja. 
And scene 68 is just by its lonesome lol
Third year film stuff!

No film stuff lately, hm.

Morgan animation test and master layout test.  Not quite hitting her Magical Blast like I want her to, but I’ll get there (got some good feedback from DQ that will help). 

Two different-ish models going on… still different from the last I was showing you… and haha, it’s going to be touched up yet again.
