This is the final project for my 2-D Character Animation class. We were to choose a pre-existing character and a line of dialogue then animate it. I chose to use some concept sketches of Po from "Kung Fu Panda" and a line from "50 First Dates" (both of which belong to their respective owners). I worked hard on this and am rather pleased with it.
Here is an opening montage board for the 1970s TV show "The Secrets of Isis". This project was a lot of fun, even though the television show was painfully bad. If you need a good laugh, go watch it. This was toned in Copic neutral grays. Enjoy!

I thought I'd take a moment and share what I've been doing. In my Advanced Storyboarding class we were given Daniel Craig and Alessandra Ambrosio and had to cast one as a Jedi and one as a Sith. First we did the character designs, then a key frame illustration, and finally a storyboard of a lightsaber battle. Here is the cover illustration for the storyboard, as well as the character design for my Jedi, and key frame illustration.

This is just a new maquette that I made over the weekend. She'll be going in my portfolio. Enjoy!

Here's a redesign of some Star Wars characters I did for my character design class. We had to design them as if the story was set during World War II. I had a lot of fun with this. I'm currently working on painting Leia in Painter.

I decided to change her skin and hair tone and I think she looks much better. She just didn't look quite right as a pale blonde.

Well hi there... first ever blog post. Yay!

I thought I'd begin by introducing myself:

My name is Jenii Stewart and I currently attend the Savannah College of Art and Design. I'm an animation major and a storyboarding minor. I plan on using this blog to post portfolio worthy images as well as some sketchbook work.

Recently my character design class made character maquettes. Hope you enjoy the pictures of the finished model and the turnaround that goes with her.
