other Bye Bye Bruce stuff

Another thing about Bye-Bye bruce's story is that it was about loneliness and coping with boredom. The "pets" are kept stored away in little cages, and each one had a different theme. The main character lived in an asian styled room, so throughout production we dubbed him "the asian".

I did some preliminary artwork regarding the character.

I also did some artwork for a poster and a chinese screen that shows up in the film.

Bye Bye Bruce Backgrounds

During the 2011 summer break I worked on an independent animated short with some friends that was called "the naked guy" project for the longest time. It's about a world where humans are pets for aliens. I got to design the bathroom, a place where many of us go to contemplate our goals in life. In Bye-Bye-Bruce (the final name) our main character does not have such a luxury.
Here are the final backgrounds to go into the movie. I liked painting the little soap bubbles. Credit to Corwin Herse-Woo and Annlyn Huang for the final paint overs.

A backyard in the Philippines

I took a short story about flying carpets and adapted it to take place in the Philippines this was an assignment for ART117b. Character designs were kind of influenced by that hilarious Japanese TV show called ShinChan.
