This Thursday is the gallery show for us character animators at CalArts! For this event, Kirsten and I are sharing a space on the wall, so we came up with a theme for our art. we were a bit ambitious (like usual) & decided to create a series of illustrations based on the board game Candyland. We re-designed a few characters and places from the game, and topped it off with candy-inspired caricatures of each other.
This was a crazy amount of work (all done in two days!), but it was super fun! Especially after being paralyzed by the plague that hit CalArts last week. Rejoicing with candy is always good though.
The image above is my re-design of Queen Frostine. I had the most fun compositionally with this one.
Quick sketches I did while trying to figure out what Gloppy should look like. I didn't get a chance to do as many presentable sketches for the other characters since our time was so limited. But here's a few I did have for the lovable, chocolatey, amorphous glob.
And finally, here's the caricature I did of Kirsten! We created candy-inspired caricatures of each other to hang up next to our names.
