This illustration, Brink, marks the start of my new animated short film project — currently in development. A simple character concept sketch turned into a full-blown digital painting. I’m planning to simplify the character design in order to make it easier to animate. Unfortunately with my OCD for perfection and detail, this is proving to be a difficult thing to do…

I enjoyed drawing the background, especially the water. While the water didn’t turn out as glossy and sparkling as I had envisioned, at least it shows plenty of movement. The (future) simplistic character designs may contrast well with this type of background.

While I’m still in the planning stages of my short film, I hope you look forward to it.
