Here is some current work (some in progress) from my most recent project at SJSU, based on John Steinbeck's book Cannery Row. The objective was to make 4 interior layouts, which I treated as animation backgrounds. I decided to try and work differently from my previous school projects, and more like the last two personal projects I did over winter break.
This is the first piece I did. I made this to test the style and mood of this world, looking at Golden Books and artists like Charles Harper for inspiration.
The next two are interiors of Doc's lab. Doc is a self-made marine biologist, and he supplies marine (and other) animals and supplies to universities and labs to make money.
The next two below are Lee Chong's grocery store. The top one is more "in progress" than the rest of the project.
