The final roundup of LAX sketches. I had a little over an hour before my plane boarded---after drawing for awhile I started playing the game of "Who looks like they're going to Oregon?"....and turns out the two plaid-wearing guys were. On my return flight from Oregon to LAX, the guy in the pink shirt was also on that same flight too--along with his friend Danny who was sportin' a Three Stooges t-shirt for the early morning trip(it was about 5:30 in the morning when I drew him).
And then on Black Friday I hit up the ol' mall foodcourt to draw the true Oregonians. Lots of interesting characters and I can't wait to start drawing the holiday crowds in just a matter of days! The fall semester at CalArts has pretty much ended...things are starting to really calm down so now I'm focusing on taking care of last minute business and packing up. I'll be driving home this time so no more airport drawings....but plenty of foodcourt time planned. Anyways, I thought I'd finally share the two dialog tests that have been taking up most of my time---
I've included my first pass, and then the final pass for both tests. Now, there's a long list of things I'll be fixing on both the cow and beaver, but for now, this is where they stand. When I come back in school in January I'll be addressing the issues these have. But I really enjoyed working on them and overall, feel like I learned a ton--not only from these two, but from the whole semester. I'll get into that more when I post up my actual "End of the Semester" report--but I'm going to do that once I've arrived in Oregon. For now, off to wrap some presents and get ready for tonight's Character Animation Holiday Party. :)
