First post

connectivityfilm:

Hello! My name is Max and I’ve decided to set up a blog to track my thesis film’s progress. As of now I have titled the film “Connectivity” and if all goes well I will release it online and possibly through festivals starting May 2015. The film will be animated in Flash with backgrounds designed in Photoshop and Illustrator.

This film is going to cover a very personal topic for me: online friendships

Out of the very real friends I have made in the past few years, both near and far, every single one has a story about a personal connection made through the internet. Some of these stories have happy endings, and some have tragic ones. While this film draws mainly from my experiences, it is inspired by each and every one of these stories, and the stories of the millions of people around the world who have connected. 

I have started this blog because in the process of writing my film, reading other film blogs and other types of development blogs has been extremely inspiring. I will hold myself to posting something here at least twice a week, if not more. At the time of this writing I am drafting my script, preparing character designs and gathering visual inspiration. In the next few weeks I will be storyboarding, designing backgrounds and finalizing character designs.

I will also be giving this blog a facelift sometime soon so it’s less bland and gray! Stay tuned for some more posts sometime later today.

Hey guys! Here’s a good, FREE art program with some amazing fluid features! Go to 7:00 to see some examples of how the program works.

If Photoshop is too expensive for you, this program—Verve—might be just the ticket! And I swear, people are getting texture effects I’ve never seen come out of Photoshop proper. 

Even if you don’t feel like you need it, recommend it to your friends who might! It does require a fairly recently graphics card, but the size of the program itself is very small, so if you have a laptop for example it might be just the thing. 

ooooh

mother of god O_O

This looks utterly mindblowing.

saying this is a good alternative to Photoshop is misleading since this program is very experimental. Personally i think Krita is a better choice for a more standard digital painting experience. However this is a cool program and seems like it would be a good fit for someone who wants their work to look unique.

"Catallena" 
sketchbook page I’ve been working on in my toned gray sketchbook on and off with a slowly fading Sharpie and white gel pen. if only i had more slowly dying Sharpies to do more work like this.

long time no sketch! work has been extremely busy so personal work was put aside. but here’s a creative use of a dying sharpie.

i’m taking a ten week long illustration class and my professor assigned a 2-4 page comic. expect the character designs for that to be posted later!

it’s that time, aka time to brainstorm ideas for my thesis film. this time i’m choosing a concept that’s a little closer to my heart than the one i tried (and failed to complete) last year. that concept? long distance relationships.  so here’s an idea for how it would look.
