School's “Bumper”

I worked one month on a 1 minute video with six of my classmates. This video's aim was to introduce our diplomas in festivals. It's a tribute to a great illustrator, and one of our teachers : Jean-Michel Nicollet.

Here's the robot...
...and the pincer I modeled.
I also worked on textures and animation.

3D training

I finally made videos of my 3D training. 
All I can say is I love 3D animating! This is sooo much fun! Yes, even cleaning the Graph Editor. Haha
(Concerning the lipsync, the audio comes a bit earlier than the video, I don't know why... so sorry about that.)

Character Design : Owl

As I said, my bird illustration inspired me a lot. So I decided the main character of my diploma would be... a owl! Why? Just because it's the most spiritual bird and animal in every culture. I truly love this bird.

Here are some drawings I made.

Owl Symbolism : The owl spirit animal is emblematic of a deep connection with wisdom and intuitive knowledge. If you have the owl as totem or power animal, you’re likely to have the ability to see what’s usually hidden to most. When the spirit of the animal guides you, you can the true reality and see beyond illusion and deceit. The owl also offers for those who have it a personal totem the inspiration and guidance necessary to deeply explore the unknown and the magic of life.

30 minutes illustrations : Part 2

Here are some other 30 minutes illustrations I've made. 
The first one inspired me for the scenario I currently am working on. 

More to come soon!

30 minutes illustrations : Part 1

I haven't posted in a while, and I'm truly sorry about this!

Actually, I went through a bad patch for a couple weeks and questioned myself a lot. Yes, because of my school. My first diploma proposition sadly got rejected, but the reasons were well justified and consequently, accepted. But tears fell and confidence went a bit away. I couldn't hold a pencil for days, telling myself that everything I'd do would suck. I guess I'm not the only one who has such moments.
BUT! Later, I found myself over thinking about my diploma, finding another idea and many ways to think it over.

So! I grabbed my computer, played the Hunger Games score (James Newton Howard is a genius!) and started making 30 minutes illustrations about the subject I want my diploma to be about : angels.

Here are some of them.

The others will come soon!
