TandT: 018

Its been a long semester so far. But being on break has given me a chance to work on a spontaneous personal project. So what I have here is a project I came up with on the fly. Living on the coast I see the endless forest of Eucalyptus trees all lining along the coastside hills. It seems like such a peaceful and mysterious place. I found myself thinking that it would be a great place to build a home. Living in the quiet eucalyptus forest away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday life. A small oasis. So my idea for the project follows my daydream. We have Francis, a retired veteran and school teacher, who decides to leave his busy and tiresome life in the city and moves to the country. Francis is accompanied by his faithful golden retriever, Drake. Francis and Drake decide to live in a small cabin on the edge of a silent eucalyptus grove. They spend their days exploring the Eucalyptus grove. For both Francis and Drake the eucalyptus grove is like there second home. They both find themselves exploring, finding new things with the grove, and getting lost by the beauty and mystery of the grove. Although one day they discover that the grove embodies something that have never seen before; a mysterious power. They soon discover that the grove is alive with an entity all of itself.

So basically I feel like this was great practice of having a small idea and really trying to produce some vis dev on a small amount of time. I gave myself a timeline of 4 days to produce this. Also, I was really inspired by the work done in shows like Gravity Falls and Steven Universe. The vis dev for those shows are straight up gorgeous and really I am just trying to get good those amazing artist. Although this was fun to do, I do have to get back to my schoolwork.

Some cabin ideations for Francis and Drake.

Think I got a little to crazy with the color of the eucalyptus bark lol.

Deep within the grove, they discover the power of the forest.
