Disney's Beauty & the Beast Musical


Eventually, this musical brought back my childhood memories & dreams.

I remember every movies that I had watched with my parents, & this is one of it.
I used to sketch out the beast on the paper but it failed until the day I found the coloring book... XD

I can't remember how many times I've played the VHS I have.

Every animator & artist has the first thing that enlighten them when they're kids, & Beauty & the Beast is mine.

Listen to the scores & songs playing live is more stunning than I expected. =)




I found this in youtube, it played in KL, Malaysia~ though the sets, lighting & costume design was a little different. ^^

Drunk at End of Semester?

The last piece of work I did in this semester, & let it be the last post of this semester, Spring 2010..

Yes, it's over~~

Lotz of lotz of things happening but Im glad I still be able to get my work/ demoreel down by the end of this semester. =)

For this piece, I only have 3 weeks to work on it, as you can see how blocky it is.. sorry for the line quality too~
I think.. I would like to keep how it looks like right now.. if only I have extra time or a huge encouragement from you guys to push me to finish it. XP

I like the idea, sound & music help unfinished work looks a little bit better.. Don't you think so?
(Thanks Dean for providing his background drawings.)

Anyway, hope you like it!! (just hit the play button!)


Finally, I got the rejection email from Pixar internship this morning.
So what, that means Im not good enough & I've to keep working hard, hard, hard..!!

I will not give up. =)

How to Train Your 'Acting Choice'

Acting choice.. IS SO DIFFICULT!!!
do check the comparison below.


The Final Version:

just finished it few days ago, change the entire acting choice of the guy, as well as continue polishing for both characters.


V.S.


Second Version:

that I posted this few weeks ago, I still feel the acting of the guy is weird.. so weird..


V.S.



The First Version:

Haah this was actually the first version I did in class.. the context, story, character design are totally different. but.. instructor like it.. ?!! It's such a pain to work on this..
video

Anyway, let me know which u think is better &

Most important is, as the title mentioned, how to train our acting choice as an animator..? How do we judge the good or bad acting choice, or weird acting choice..?

Alright, I got to watch How to Train Your Dragon this weekend. I MUST WATCH!!!
