You know, this whole doing the entire film by yourself thing really makes you get a sense of what part of production you're good at, okay and, and just flat out hate.

I've been poking around at the backgrounds lately. I had wanted to get most of them at least fleshed out over break but the whole laptop death sort of wrecked that idea. I was hoping to do them in more of a.. beautifully illustrated Disney style, LOL. But that would end up being way too much work, especially since background paintings arent my forte.

I'm still fiddling around with styles right now, I need to find a way to be able to do them fairly quickly while still looking decent, this is especially hard because I have to do them at such a large scale so the quality isn't lost, a lesson well learned from Gladiator.

I did a quick mockup with Gatorgirl actually in the image this time, to get a better feel for her colors as well. At this scale it looks alright, each is a different style I considered, now I'm thinking about taking it even more simple and panterly.

Wow, blogger destroys the quality of images.


  1. I really like those! Nice colors and tones :D

  2. Glancing at my feeds, I thought this was a post from the Animation Backgrounds blog. Needless to say this style looks really good for your movie.
