2 out of 3 layouts I did for Layout class, taught by Marec Fritzinger - very charming fellow.
I had no idea what layout was until then, and now I have even more people I must pay respects to, when watching my favourite animated movies.
These are two layouts done by hand with light blue prismacolour and HB pencil, based on a deleted-scene storyboard from "The Emperor's New Groove".
Here, showing first the actual, full layout and below it, the final 16:9 composition. I wanted a sad and oppressed feel.
You do get to brush up on your "perspective-drawing skills". Here's the second one and it's final version below:
I even did a style guide, to use as reference for what Mayan symbols to use within the city, the scale and shapes of things and such. ANd then I just taped on a clean-up version of the character for model reference.
