These Sesh character designs are from September. This blog is slowly catching up to where I'm at now in the production (animation phase). I'll try to post some animation tests in the weeks to come. But for now, the designs of Sesh in the various mediums that she finds herself in throughout the film.
First, Sesh as a charcoal sketch. She will be joining a group of sketched dancers in this sequence, so she changes from her tight, confining Egyptian dress into a freeing leotard.
Finally, I painted Sesh using oil paints. This is the first time I've ever used oils, so it's not exactly the way I wanted it to turn out. I'm not going to use actual paint for the sequence in which Sesh becomes oil painted (rather, it will be digital in some form or another), but I just wanted to get a feel for the medium.
By the way, if anyone has any suggestions for how to get a consistent oil painted look that can also be animated, please let me know! And feel free to give comments on these designs!
