concept artwork and final designs...

Below are some concept design ideas for possible scenes in the short animation for my pitch. I have done them quite simple and in a quite a hand drawn style, colouring with paint and then going over them in Photoshop slightly just to highlight and create some shadows. They aren't as distance or carry as much depth as my backgrounds as they are not layered at all and are just flat drawings, however hopefully they are clear as possible images and scene ideas.

In this scene Terrance is becoming quite down about not being able to find a mate or anyone of his own species and starts to doubt if there is any one else out there like him.

The scene below shows Terrance peering into the forest at another animal that he thinks could be a Tapir (as it turns out it is a male rhino!) Baz has just caught him up and looks around to see what he is looking at.

This next scene is from the camcorder viewpoint that Baz still has from making Terrance's video. Terrance is trying to move a Dormouse out of the way, but when he taps it it actually rolls off into a lake. I think there could potentially be some really interesting viewpoints using the camcorder for a few of the shots, and they can be easily defined by the red veiwfinder as shown in the image below. It should therefore be clear to the audience that hese are the parts being filmed by Baz.

This is the picture I am going to use for the main title page, showing the idea of the story with Baz filming Terrance. The title, which is now 'Endangered Love' for the dating service he send the video into, will be placed in the centre.

This is the my final image showing the way I want the piece to look. It has layered backgrounds built up in Toon Boom for depth and I think it has quite a lot fo distance, with Baz and Terrance looking through the grass to see the scene. This could possibly be used as the scene where Terrance pulls back the grass to see his fellow Tapirs in the water.
