It was a great experience being a part of CTN Road-trip 2015. Surrounded by friendly people and inspiring artists!!! This was my second year and I got to share it with my friend Pat Marconett, an awesome background artist with beautiful attention to detail. Thank you Burbank for the great weather we had a lot of fun and hope to do it again next year.
I spent an incredible week camping in the wilderness for a Pastel Workshop with Bill Cone. I'm so honored to have gotten the chance to learn from him. His pastel work is beautiful! As a first time camper and pastel user it was really neat to experience everything! We went to a few locations, each one very different from one another. Here are some images from my trip.
I was fortunate enough to take Intro to Color and Light, a workshop at Animation Collaborative with Paul Abadilla, an Artist at Pixar Animation Studio! It was an eye opening experience and I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to learn from him. He had us read Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, a children's book by Peter Brown to help develop our images. The following contents are assignments, studies, and practice exercises that I did for class. (The last three images are practice-paint-overs of layouts from Disney's 101 Dalmatians, Studio Ghibli's My Neighbor Totoro, and Disney's Lilo and Stitch.)
