France / Valence / Studio Folimage / 4th month of pre-production of "Beach Flags"
Thanks to my super layout man "Jean", yesterday we finished the background layouts and tomorrow we'll start coloring them.We've got around 158 scenes to color... a lot of work! but everything's going well and I'm excited to finally see some colors!
okay! back to work!

Layout Décors

Today we start the layout for the backgrounds while there is a little risk of changing some scenes in the animatic during the week. Arte has to give me validation to take the next step, but I had to take the chance because Jean who helps me with layout might not be available later and we start by sequences were I'm pretty sure I don't want to change. It is nice to start a new phase of the project.

Beach Flags concept art

Some graphic research I had done before. But now I have decided to use much less colours. I will post some of my new work soon. Right now I am working on my character design before we start animation in April. Here is The trainer!

okay, so I have just a few days between the animatic and the back grounds layout, to work a bit more on the graphics of my film. I have tried some stuff that look so nice but would not be easy to animate such as this style which I like a lot. as the film has a very fast rythm, a rather complicated story, and  a small animating team, I have to choose a more simple style I guess...
