Some more line tests!

This one is the complete inbetweens of Scene 10 in our movie

These are from scene two, the first being a rough line test, the second being a cleaned up version.

These are the roughs of Scene 4, soon to be cleaned up and ready for colouring soon!

Establishing shot background!

Phew, finally finished this one.  Just needs Anna's sky dropped into the back :)

*update*  new link so you can view it full size...it won't recognise the address as an image link on this one for some reason, so this is the best I can do.  Maybe just because the file is massive.  (Click the link, not the image)

Baby Gryphon: from concept to character sheet

Over the summer the first doodled ideas of gryphon appeared in my sketchbooks
At this point, I wasn't sure if he or she was male or female or even what his story was. 
Then the image of a very sad and scared gryphon stuck in a tree  came to my mind and the story of baby gryphon  started to be plotted out. 

Early concepts

Early character development sketches

I found an ideal body shape reference for baby Gryphon. He was going to be a gryphon with an owl inspired head and a baby lynx body. 

A lot of research was done on owls and their facial expressions and face structure. 

Baby Gryphon was born.
