Gratuation Film Amare

Amare from Katarina Antonic on Vimeo.
So after 4 months of "Amare" being hidden and only a week away before the muted version is going to be on TUFF website, I decided it was about time to make my film public online. And here it is folks! Enjoy! :)

2012 Eights

And here they are. This year's line-up of my 8 characters. Definitely some fun times, and some annoying times. I also had to split the image in half because Blogger was being very stupid about the long image.

Big thanks to Ian MacDonald and Garth Laidlaw who helped me with Kikimo's pose and Iki's muscles! And to the rest of you awesome peeps thanks for checking out my blog and these pieces!

With that said, here are separate versions of two most majorly edited characters, Kikimo and Iki.


Also another fun fact for you guys. In my student film Amare, all of these characters make an appearance, but only Maki as the official one. Other ones are Easter eggs, few very hard to catch. Don't believe me?
Now I know what you're thinking: "Well gee Kat. How nice of you to show them to us, but we still don't know where they are in the film." Well, give it a couple more days, and you'll be able to hunt them down on your own. :)

Kikimo

Last but not least. And by far, the most frustrating (I was sorta expecting it but still). With this one I was trying to capture that nice energy and line quality of European comics but I don't feel like I did justice here. This one probably had the most trials, redos, and I'm still not happy with it. This is the one I was excited to do but then enjoyed doing it THE least. I'll probably redo it from scratch.

The Magnate

Yeah another one that I'm not sure what to name anymore. :P
Trying more sketchy thinner line style? I dunno...
Anyways, 7th in the lineup and the last guy! One more to go! 8D

Iki

Yeaa I changed his name... Originally I was gonna do another moody one but then I decided that I need to draw something more happy. And I am so glad I did because this one took me by far the longest! D:
Since I am in process of revising this guy, I decided to go and play with more mythological and classical themes for him. And I tried to capture that essence of classical paintings that depict mythological moments. And boy what to those paintings have a lot of aside from amazing technique and ridiculous detail? Nudity! :P
I also felt like I have to add some sort of background to this or otherwise it would feel unfinished. Maybe I'll make it more happy and colourful later. And fix Iki's arm. :P

Kara

The only one with covered face. I've also realized that all of the females in this lineups are with monsters in one way or another. =_=

Antoan


Welp if I hadn't done her enough times already. :P
Not sure If I'm entirely pleased with this take but for the time being I will move onto other 5.

Maki

When you already have a set style and colour scheme for a character it is so much easier. This one felt like a breeze doing in contrast to Finnel one. Well, I lie a bit. The background colour was driving me nuts and I'm still not happy with it. But I'm gonna move on to other characters for now. 6 more to go!

Also, since today's post is about Maki, I might as well have an update on my film.

Amare has a new soundtrack now that I think works much better than the old one. I have to thank Jason Teewuissen for helping me with sound editing and Freestock Music for allowing to use their music stock for free. :)

I am also happy to say that Amare will be an official selection for Toronto Urban Film Festival and Burlington Animation Festival. :)

If you take Toronto subways from September 7th-17th make sure to pay attention to the TTC tellies and maybe vote for my film on TUFF website! ;)
And if you are in Burlington region on September 29th maybe go and watch the selection of awesome films at Encore Cinemas! :)

Finnel

Starting the annual revisit of my 8 characters a bit earlier, cus I always get screwed over leaving it for the end of August. And this one I was very excited to start. This year I'm taking on a bigger challenge of making drawings more complex and with more elements so to express more character. In this case, Finnel's naughtiness. ;3

Hmmm

 Something in process that I'm not sure if I should continue.
And then something that went a bit better.

Forgotten Sketches

Haven't posted sketches in a while, and I have some long forgotten ones even from the beginning of this year. So here's a chance for them to shine.
