Tuesday Tips - FOLDSMore on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.Norm

Tuesday Tips - Power ShadingHere’s a technique I use often when attending life drawing sessions, especially nude sessions. I feel like it gives an energy and direction as well as clear volume to the figure. The more i know about underlying muscles, bones and general body structure, the more I can express through this technique. It’s kind of like a classic brush work when dealing with ink. It’s just more forgiving when using a Conte stick, by varying the angle and pressure of it.Try it out!Norm

Song of the Sea Teaser.

Song of the Sea is directed by Tomm Moore, who also directed The Secret of Kells (2009). With Song of the Sea he seems to be going for a traditional Irish theme, set in mythology and filled with nostalgia. In an interview with ScreenDaily he said, “

I wanted to capture the old Ireland before the whole Celtic Tiger thing started… it’s actually set in 1987. I always describe the film as a melancholy, musical comedy… the melancholy part is that little bit of nostalgia.

The visuals and music in this teaser are stunning. It’s oozing with inspiration and beauty. The Secret of Kells was also a beautiful story of imagery and symbolism, and I still go back to that one fondly from time to time. I can’t wait to see this new one.

Here’s the synopsis of Song of the Sea:

Song of the Sea tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse — the last Seal-child — who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. The film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land.

Song of the Sea is set to release in the second half of 2014. The film is a collaboration between several European studios, according to ScreenDaily:

The $7.5m (€5.6m) film is a five-way co-production between Moore’s Kilkenny-based Cartoon Saloon, Belgian The Big Farm, Luxembourg’s Melusine Productions, Paris-based Superprod and Danish Norlum.

Finally, a better look at the story of Big Hero 6 in the first full length trailer! Watch it now.

-Courtney (HarmonicaCave)

While I can’t watch this with audio at the moment, I am really enjoying the visuals and animation so far, from what I see in this trailer! Many of the shots have an interesting live-action sort of framing/feel, and it’s a very interesting blend between that and an animated style. The character designs look splendid as well, let’s hope the story proves itself solid and spectacular!

Trailer for Master Jiang and the Six Kingdoms.

This Chinese feature is coming out in 2016 in China, and hopefully the rest of the world soon after. According to Gizmodo, the cel animation is done by just two animators, Li Wei and Pei Fei. It looks epic and beautiful. Waiting for this is going to be agony.

-Chris

2D animation seems to have completely disappeared from Hollywood. Here’s a reminder that 2D can do some things that 3D can’t.
