Street View

(Click image to enlarge.)
Aaand we're back to environments!  This shot, as other Savannahians might recognize, is a view of Murphy's that has been acclimated for the comics page.  From working on this, I've learned that the key to making a space believable is 1) perspective.  Learn it.  Learn everything you possibly can from perspective, no matter how boring it is when you're just starting. 2)  Add more shit!  The more things you add to a space, the more "lived in" it feels.  Get as many wires, drains, pipes, lamps, signs, and other details that are necessary for buildings in a shot as you can.  Big blank walls are uninviting and make even something that is right in perspective look wrong.  (Check out the building on the back right to see what I mean.  That definitely needs some texture and wires and things.)

Hipster Hero Storyboards 6

(Click on images to enlarge.)

And now, the hipster story is done!  Or at least as done as it will be in storyboard form.  As I've said before, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to make this into a comic book or even a series.  That will take a little more work, but they are so sassy and cute!  What do you think, would you pick this up at an artist alley?
Also, I would like to take a minute to tell you guys about finals at SCAD.  The noticeable lack of blog updates was due to my underestimating of finals work this quarter.  I worked as hard as I could for as long as I could to churn out my final projects, and I survived!  Yay.  After my working/coffee binge, I took some much needed time off, but now I'm just itching to get some more work done, and I'll be putting any new work I make up here.
