Ideas about the girl in my story...

On Saturday, I went to an art shop to buy some clay, because I felt that it could help me to visualise the girl, Liz. I tried to make her in a pose which could be in the animation somewhere...





On Thursday (17th of March) I had an idea about the girl in my story, I had drawn her face. 
But of course, I'm not sure that I would be able to do it in Maya. 
Probably she will be more simple at the end.

Colour-balance

Playing with colours...

Edgar Degas - Miss La La at the Cirque Fernando

I've chosen this painting for my final project, after the workshop in the National Gallery. 
I was thinking about this painting...I've bought a book about Edgar Degas's life to find out more about this image. Then a couple days later, before sleeping the story came to me.
Suddenly, and without letting me think about anything else...I couldn't sleep properly that night. I was searching for the past. The past what always makes me move on and gives me strength to work on myself.

Inspired by the Calais Pier painting, from Joseph Mallord William Turner

I had a lecture with Jo Lewis (a landscape painter) in the National Gallery. We stopped in front some paintings and discovered the pictures from a different point of view.
From the Calais Pier painting I've got inspired and I wrote a short, little poem.

Here it is:

Grey, grey, grey.
Not only on the sea.
Lightness? 
Disappears...
And the only hope is the fear.

Fear what tells me:
I'm still alive,
God! Help me to stay alive.
