Last week at the Academy, we were working on designing an elephant in formal attire, like he's going to the opera. I took it a step further and added a walrus. If you look closely at the rough of the Walrus, you can read where I scribbled the note "add monocle", which came from a suggestion, or more like a demand from one of my students. I think it was a good idea, and adds a nice touch. On a side note, blogger has this new feature that lets you pinpoint where your traffic is coming from. It looks like I got a visitor from Taiwan recently, for the first time!
With Halloween coming, I thought I'd do an "homage" to zombies appearing in movies (or even on cable T.V. shows). I decided to tone it in gray, though not quite 50 shades. Below the final version, you can see an early concept in col-erase blue, and below that, the final pencil rough. I ended up moving the cheerleader down and slightly to the left, for the final, as well as scaling her up a bit.
