Tribal Village.... Work in Progress


FInished!!! I decided to stick with the vibrant red pallet as i loved trying something at bit different.
I have painted the final image in a different style to how i would usually paint. I have stuck with bold, flat, colours, and have payed little attention to the detail in the foreground, making the fire the main focal point.
This has been a fun treat to get stuck into whilst i am currently recovering from an operation. I could take it so much further, by trying different painting approaches, even adding characters...etc but i think for the time being, i'm ready to move onto the next big thing.....

3rd Colour Thumbnail. Midnight Blues, again completely changes the atmosphere. I feel this pallet has slightly more depth to it. Its good to try different colour pallets, rather than just settling with your first choice. Personally so far, I have really enjoyed the vibrant Reds in my 2nd thumbnail, to set the mood for the finished image.
Final Stage, now in progress. Come Back Soon....

2nd Colour Thumbnail. Vibrant Reds etc, create a sense of intense heat and danger. I'm enjoying the fear these colours bring to the scene, where as the greens seemed a little too safe. Its amazing how colour completely changes the mood.
Work in Progress..... More to come......

1st Colour Thumbnail. Stereotyped, Greens... friendly jungle colours....

Cleaned up final lines put together on many multiplane layers. Next Step.... Colour!

Rough Tonal Thumbnail. Next Job.... draw and clean it up.

Hi Tori,
Thank you. Your work is great too. Your trace is very consistent despite your low age. Congratulations.
I´m living in Rio, you´re right. When I saw the name "favelados", it had called my attention. The word in portuguese would´ve meen that we had something in common (laughing).Then I run to watch it, and what a great surprise: I love it. What a wonderfull backgrounds and characters designs. Actualy I´ve loved it all.
Have you been in Rio to feel it, take pictures, or get along the favela´s citizens?
It is really impressive that it is just film made for a student at that moment. You´re very talented.
May I publish a post in my blogger to tell the brazillian people about the film, and ask them all to watch it? It woud be a plesure for me.
Let´s keep in touch.
Best regards
Ique

Hello Tori,

Yes! I checked out your student film and it's really cool and interesting looking. Favela came to my attention when we were doing some research for new IP and "Hulk" and "city of God" made me look very closely to the location. Rough layouts looks super tight, it's so interesting to see how different part of world/school does visdev process. I am familiar with Japanese and here in US- I think you guys are sort of doing a crossover between eastern and western style which makes your project more unique. Take care and good luck with your career! thanks for visiting my blog-I come back and visit yours from now.
Have a nice week,

Cecil
