So far I've done 21 all lined, here they are in mini form, obviously bigger they look better and you can see more of the detail...

So as you can see the main focus again is to do one character first and then the other... it makes the whole thing much more consistent... it's not going too bad and I've been able to improve some of the originals...At the tail end of the week I haven't been able to do so much, so hopefully I should be able to start a fresh next week... I'm away for a few days now, so I have to leave the graphics tablet behind (orders from the people I'm going away with haha)
In other news, I've applied for two jobs now, ITV and BBC... fingers crossed!

Real line drawing!

 So line drawing... what's all that about? Well in Pencil I draw what I want the shot to look like... and in this case I got it horribly wrong as in angle of the chin and stuff... BUT THAT'S OKAY! Because these things get fixed on the computer! So his chin doesn't look so horrible any more, and what's better is that you can make transitions between shots in consistent

So in this transition... his chin changed shape, his hair was different and BLAH... and it was generally horrible.


This is all fixed when you get the chance to go between shots and go and look at one and then the next... So the computer makes it much easier for the sake of continuity... I've done 11 shots fully penned today... let's hope I make the same progress tomorrow! 

Voice acting!

Well voice acting was soo good yesterday I was absolutely thrilled. Here are two excerpts... (I'm not sure which Faustus to use >.<)



I can't lie Mephistopheles blew me away! Absolutely amazing, just what I had had in mind... whether it makes me want to redraw some of it... is another matter...

Voice recording and script!

Well it's all getting very exciting now! I have just about finish my dialogue for the interactive sections and am currently arranging to get the dialogue for my project recorded on Friday! That of course means I don't have a lot of time to read through the script before I send it to the actors, but I should be able to do that tonight. I've also been watching videos on the best methods of recording voice overs and what I should be looking for from my actors.
It's very exciting, I'm going to get my script checked one last time. I'll be doing some more drawing styles today.

Different paint styles

So experimenting with paint styles is useful, it'll help me decided which will be quickest to do and look nice. This is supposedly 'quick paint' style... it took me about 40mins... i think once I get used to it, it wouldn't take so long... it's... okay but I think it needs some texture....
(I should practice painting on the computer more) Advantage is that you don't need one clean line all around which saves time
