Locales by jeffreylai Locales by jeffreylai
Blog!: [link]
Just thinkin abit about locations. Sorta ongoing project/thing I've been doing.
I haven't fleshed out the whole world yet but I like the idea of demons and ghosts interacting in the real world~

Man maybe I should just make my own animations. (now that would be a pretty big mission.)
Hm it would be interesting to animate on painted backgrounds.
I guess i'll keep that in mind for the future..

(whoa and thanks for the Bday wishes!)

Some other stuff associated with it. (there's more stuff in my gallery if you want to look)

Thanks! hmm I guess if you study colour theory it makes things easier to understand.
Also studying for reference helps

So you can animate and create great backgrounds... Any short animation project would awesome and very welcome. Maybe someday you can honor us with such a project! ;)

And so you should! ;)

I'm not sure you're familiar with Makoto Shinkai's work but if he started to do whole short movies by himself, I see no reason why you shouldn't either. I mean... the talent is already there! :D

I see your animations and think "damn these are sick". Then I see this and I'm like "wtf he's this good at painting backgrounds?". Then I think "Why don't you put your animations on your backgrounds?!" lol but you already addressed that so nvrmnd.

These locations are cool. I'd like to see a story in these parts of the world. They have mystery and are interesting just by themselves. That is a win win story! Nice work!

these are fantastic, beautiful colours and depth! for some reason i'm particularly drawn to the pillars and the background trees of the second, but they're all amazing and i'd love to see some of your awesome animation work on some of these.
