Fall Quarter 2010

A little caricature practice, the family Christmas card, and my Literature final. Did a ton of animating this quarter but not sure if I'm going to post it. We'll see.

Looking forward to everything I'll be doing during this coming year! My last year of school! Its going to go by fast.

Final Breakdancer

Breakdancer: Headspin from Anna Fleissner on Vimeo.

First time ever inking, coloring, and all that jazz. Pretty proud of this. :D

Color Exercise

Who doesn't love the wild west? Here's a wanted poster of one of my older characters. Below is the painting (Charles Marion Russell, A Bad Hoss) I referenced for my color scheme.
Old artwork of this gal from 2007.

Gadget: Bicycle

Organic Model: Gargoyle

Smoothing off.

Smoothing on.

Some details.

Wireframe, smoothing off.

This was my first organic model. It was pretty fun and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I'm already itching to start another one. :)

Drawing Things Because I Can

Sometimes I just need to make something for no reason at all. Final week of the quarter. Pretty much done with all my stuff. Blockhead Animation Festival coming up.

I do love fall colors.

Pirates Weren't Made To Dance

Some close-ups.

Wow. This is one of the biggest paintings I've ever done. 47 layers total, the pirate and girl were sketched out and the rest done up in Photoshop. All based off of the song "Dude Whats A Land Pirate?" by The Wonder Years. Don't take a pirate to prom.

If you're interested in some tunes:

Nervous Surgeon

An ethics assignment. My only goal was to spark some conversation about medical malpractice lawsuits, I don't know enough about the issue to take a stance. Happy with the painting though. :)

August Sketchdump

You should totally just open it in full view.

Speedpaint 01

Working on incorporating more texture into my painting. For this one I set the original sketch to multiply and worked on painting underneath it. I think it gave it a little more oomf.

A Comparison

Coloring up an old character. It's cool to see how much my style can change over two years.

End of Spring 2010

Top three images were my Digital Imaging final. We were required to texture, light and model an environment. (Emphasis on the texture and lighting.) I chose a kindergarten classroom!

Patti Smith Speed Paint

I'm not really all that into early punk, but Patti Smith is amazing.

How do I fit all the good feelings and camp memories of many years into a five minute short for my writing for animation class? And how do I transform this into a story that will strike a cord with people that have experienced it themselves and still appeal to a wide range of audiences at the same time?

It will be tricky.
