color studies of guard – week 11

Marilyn was almost done with the designs of the characters, YAY!! but they still need proper clothing and color studies, hence I got on with coloring them, starting with the guard since the design of that was finalized first.


Some references that I used:

guard color 1


guard color 2


so colorful!~ There’s still more colors to try out and I’ll update once I’m done.

Till next update then~


silhouette studies – week 7

As Marilyn has some difficulties in visualising character designs, Yiting suggested that we could do some silhouette studies to visualize it better, so TADAH.


I did a few studies on the sweeper, with the help of a few references.

and these are a few of the studies that I did.








Mostly it was just experimenting with different shapes, and later on I passed it on to Marilyn to see if there is any that she liked and could use it to further develop.

Also, we each did individual storyboards so as to see how individual members visualize the story in their own way. That way, we can have different angles to play around with too.

the above was my own rendition of how the entire film would look like.

So that’s about it! Till next update then~

Week 4 updates; storyboards

A few more days to our week 5 mini viva!!! Last week, our 5 ideas were being narrowed down into three ideas, and although we really liked the kid and the smoke story, due to some reasons it was refused and replaced with the man on the airplane instead. After a bit of editing and changing of frames with the help of the feedback given by the other members, this is the 90% of the storyboards.

There’s still a bit of tweaking to be done and we should be able to get everything prepared and done by Wednesday!

Week 3 updates

I redefined some more on the logo designs before putting it together with the other members’ sketches to come out with more ideas.



I felt that the logo should give off a sense of spring and freshness, just like how the name suggests. Hence, I researched on a few different fonts like vine fonts and spring fonts. Also, the leaf was a random thought but it looks nice and it sort of signifies the life in spring too.
