Pages 7, 10 & 15 - Colour

So, this is what I've been doing this weekend while the world was chillin on the beach.

These three pages are not sequential, but are picked at random from the storyboard below - just in case you read them and think 'hey, this doesn't make any sense, and this girl's an idiot.' 
Will make much more sense after reading the whole thing - Its based on the story of Hansel & Gretel, obviously, buuuut I sort of shortened, and re-wrote it to better compliment the pictures.

Wish I had the time to do more, but I have an appointment with the spraymount.

MASSIVE Storyboard for Hansel & Gretel

Final Pages (Sketchbook)

As deadline day drags its ugly corpse over the horizon, I'm definitely panicking.
These pages are the result of this weeks panic:

They need cleaning up etc before printing and binding with the rest of it but I just wanted to put these up before I go find a coffee-related reward for myself... and start on the paintings.

(and yes, the gingerbread man is dead, the poor thing)

Visual Studies IS OVERRR

As 'Visual Studies' Tuesdays are dying away, I thought I'd make an effort

Did a few paintings done just to practice my colour theory - 
this one ^^^ was done today, from some sketches from a fortnight ago. Photo's are fine normally but I'm glad I did the colour sketches because the photos were a bit dreary compared to the real thing! I think it was the first really sunny day since the start of term (and I spent it inside, obvz).

Not quite as glowing with pride about the other ones, but here are some anyways:

^ Weston-super-Mare beach, looking lovelier than usual ^
(this one looks like a paint by numbers)

^ a random house near the harbour, Falmouth ^

Inside the Gingerbread House

Ok sooo just realised I didn't finish drawing the bookcase but you get the idea.

Kids follow the masked lady into the house, which is really really big on the inside, and is lit and heated by a massive oven in the roof. 
Not sure about the curly smoke at the moment, might put in some flames, and more steam shooting out of pipes.. that sort of thing.

Note the humungous toes poking out from under the old woman's shawl!

Page Nine/Ten: Roughs

Two more roughs from Hansel and Gretel:
The witch presents herself as an old, blind woman covered entirely with a patchy blanket.
And a mask.

Also if anyone's interested, my boiler is still broken. Every soul in this house is in dire need of a shower; it is  definitely best that I didn't grace the studio with my presence today.
