Superman Sketching

Another Superman sketch I did last year some time. His head is too small and it's more like Superboy than Man. It also isn't as stylized as the one posted yesterday. I still like the stitching in the uniform and the smaller cape.

50s Home Layout and Aging Tests

Below are some test layouts and aging test for the 50s inspired animation project I'm working on.

This is the pencil sketch of the background being used as reference for the bike rider animation while the background was being outlined, colored and finalized.

While in the process of finalizing the house and the cityscape, some tests were done to age the animation footage using the bike rider and pieces of the background. I turned the color footage to sepia tone, then added some film grain, used vignette to darken and blur the corners.

Another test aging the footage while in color. Added some film grain, dust and artifacts, soft focus, and gave it a bad tv resolution.
