I recently finished up a 30 second animation project for a documentary film titled Educaution about the crippling student loan crisis. I directed the piece, storyboarded it, drew the background layouts, and animated a third of the project. I also cleaned up and colored all the animation.
Bethany Craig animated the rest of the film and did an amazing job on flags and growing trees! Here are the backgrounds I drew for the project. My friend Eli Hoyt later painted the grassy layouts.

Here's some rejected storyboards from a project I was working on. The director wanted the character to enter in a more simple way. Hopefully, I can show the second pass when the production is further along. I was able to work on the project with several of my former classmates. Sullivan Brown designed the boy character.
Horray! I graduated! And I finished my film (mostly! editing a few things I am unhappy with). I've decided to post some of the artwork on my film I never shared here:
When I initially changed my idea to be about a swan maiden I got really excited about designing her. I checked out many books from the library about Regency Era clothing! And I just did little swan themed dress thumbnails even if they weren't based in the correct time period. The last three drawings are the ones I decided were best and I ultimately went with the colored version. Her colors were based on the colors of a black-necked swan.
