CandyCart

At the beginning of January, I started an online course called Illustration for Motion. The purpose of the course is to teach students how to conceptualize and design assets for animation. The course has been very fun and full of great practice, so I thought I'd post some work here.


One of our first assignments was to create three frames for a video about a fake company called Candy Cart, which is an app that delivers your favorite movie snacks to your home. We could only use black and white lines with one spot color.


Here are my frames, matched with the corresponding narration:

Narration: When you want to go to the movies, but don't want to leave the couch...


Narration: ...meet CandyCart.


Narration: It's an app that delivers your movie candy in under one hour.


Halfway through the course, we had to return to these frames and add more color and perspective. Here are those updated frames:


Narration: When you want to go to the movies, but don't want to leave the couch...


Narration: ...meet CandyCart.


Narration: It's an app that delivers your movie candy in under one hour.


I was pretty attached to my original drawings, so it was challenging to go back to them and break them out of their stylized, flat world and give them more perspective. I did enjoy applying these bold colors and playing with patterns and textures though.
