Painting from last night/this morning

Here's a piece I started last night in prep for for visual development for my pitch. I can' t really use it though since my pitch is set in autumn but is was good practise. I spent some time beforehand getting the drawing underneath properly structured which really helped too. I was trying to capture that dusk feeling when the sun is below the horizon yet the sky is pale and it bounces some light around.

Bird Girl Character Sketches

It's been way too long since I've posted, but here are some character sketches for the idea I'm developing for the pitch, working title 'Bird Girl.' The summary of the story is:

A boy discovers the girl that appears one morning in his garden is in fact a bird who then flies south as autumn ends.

The storyboard is slowly coming together, along with some layout concepts I'll post later. It's been the most time-consuming part of developing the idea so far. Hopefully it'll be done by mid September. I'll follow up this post with some more development notes in the next few weeks, and some posts about what influenced me and helped me develop the idea further.
