Okay, I was a good animator today and worked through the morning, so I get to take a break and draw a silly picture of Hyde listening to "Where is My Mind?"
I would really prefer to be watching Fight Club right now. Oh well, back to work 8D
(This is possibly the girliest Hyde I have ever drawn)

I've been spazzing out all semester about how my story portfolio doesn't have anything really funny in it (normal funny, as opposed to "wow that owl is really being eaten alive that is funny" funny). I also don't have anything that could really be considered "rough". These.... aren't really rough either, but I resisted the urge to tone the crap out of everything.
ADELE IS MY PET MOUSE. SHE LIKES TO BURROW. I SWEAR THESE BOARDS LOOK BETTER IN AN ANIMATIC WHEN THEY'RE NOT LAID OUT SIDE BY SIDE LIKE THIS.
....I just realized that ALL of my storyboarding projects involve a small creature running away from a big one. Uh oh.

As I get less and less confident in my grasp on storytelling, I compensate by making COLORFUL LAYOUTS.
The idea is to give everyone who passes through the Mac labs the idea that I must be making a good film because I'm using so many CoLoRs, and then to disappoint them majestically at the open show when they find out that actually the film as a whole is completely incoherent.
My boss made fun of me, saying that I must not have spent enough time on story if I have so much time to color my film (which I....don't, really). This is actually the opposite of true. I had a much firmer grasp of what the story was when it was simple than when I tried to screw around with it all first semester and ended up with something confusing and overly complicated.
