Props & environments 1
So part of this Winter break, I plan on studying more layouts and (here) props, which play an important elements in backgrounds and characters.
Layout artists are incredible. They need both a sense of cinematography and animation to know how to go about designing the layout in which both the camera and characters take motion.
Here I did caricatures of furniture, some more loose than others. I used Hammermill Color Laser Gloss paper, with ink pens and prisma markers.
I really enjoyed the effect the markers on this paper achieves. They dry very quickly so you see the strokes. This with the ink pens made it great for spontaneous caricatures.
