Please say I’m not the only one who’s thought it…

March 3, 2010

Its mainly the hair.... but still....

I can’t be the only one who has thought of the comparison between Depp’s Hatter & Carrot Top. Before his brief appearance in Scrubs I had no idea who he was, then he popped up in an ep of Family Guy lol. But barely any knowledge of this guy. Depp however… they’ve made him look scary… freaky….nightmarish…. and yet theres still swooning?! lol

Yeaah... HAWT XD

I hope all these tweens going to see the movie for him have NIGHTMARES HAHAHAHA! And much as I like/liked Burton flicks…(Sleepy Hollow still my favourite, his movies seem to get weirder-looking as the years go by…odd…) This Alice in Wonderland looks….loopy… its not the original story ofc, its a Alice-revisited story. Like the recent ‘SyFy’ Alice with the yummy Andrew Lee Pott’s as Hatter. Wasn’t a great version frankly… but which will I like better lol?

Anyways, might see this friday, 2D ofc. Why waste the money on 3D when so far, with every movie I’ve seen in 3D & then seen the 2D to compare, theres been no significant difference in enjoyment? If I don’t see AIW, I’ll see Legion for some Angel-awesomeness. 😀

And a few more scary pics I just found… they have deffo done something to his eyes.. made them a big bigger it looks like… and the green ofc… just….freaky scary….

Its actually properly nightmarish… I’ll need to look at some happy pics to get this out of my head…*shudder* Once again, I hope all you crazed Depp-loving tweeny-boppers(who, lets face it, probably don’t even know the story, Disney or Lewis Carroll original…) have nightmares!!

Character Design Workshop with Nick Roberson

November 25, 2008

Today in class, we had an awesome workshop taught by Nick Roberson(He worked on Corpse Bride, and has been in the animation biz, teaching biz and stone carving biz)! Last week we were given a character, we had to pic at random. I picked this fellow.

All the characters we had to choose from were designed by Carlos Grangel, who I just found out did character designs for Balto….. OMG Awesome much. Anyways. We were told to do sketches of our character, profiles, silhoettes, head shots, 3/4 views etc.

Thats just one page of the stuff I did. I haven’t scanned anything in yet lol. I named him Dr Rondhart, after the village Doctor from Tsubasa Chronicles in volume 4 of the manga. He reminded me of Kyle Rondart for some reason. The pic I got also made me think of Johnny Depp in Sleepy Hollow lol. I can just imagine the little guy scuttling round a village tending to the needs of the sickly. Looking all flustered and wide eyed.

We had to model in plastacine. 9-5 modelling plastacine KILLS your fingers. I swear… I’m gonna get blisters on my fingers tonight…. they feel so raw….

stage1

Thats what it started out as. Well… not before building up the feet n stuff. It’s a shame the wire frame we got was a bit thick for the uber-thin legs of most of the characters we got given. But Rondhart still looks good.

stage-2

stage2b

Built up more. I misunderstood Nick when he said to give my guy more of a butt, and more shape around his stomach and stuff. He wanted me to do what I wanted to do originally lol. (Read on for final model n more WIPs)
