Dream Defenders Ep05 Teaser ll On The Ball

Heres a trailer for an episode for the show I've been working on for the past 3 years (can't believe its been that long already!). Its called Dream Defenders, and its about two kids who enter peoples dreams and help fight the nightmares that plague them. This is one of the few environments in the show that I designed (with the the guidance of our awesome art director: Pauline Fong ofcourse). Here the high school tennis champ has nightmares about an upcoming match in form of a lava dungeon arena, and his rival in form of a 4 armed tyranosaurus rex.

I also proxy modelled the environment and the props for this set with the help of my other half . Will be posting more trailers and stills as they get posted on the youtube channel and blog.

Environment Study

A warmup study of some artwork by Jayee Borcar for the film "Rise of the Guardians." Still tons to learn when it comes to environments. But had a great time painting this :)
