I realized I never posted the final from Sam Nielson’s class last semester. Ta-dum.

I wanted to make a sort of…Haunted Mansion-ish picture, where the top part is all charming but then you pan down and there’s mischief afoot, but I think it ended up a touch hard to read. Alas. One day I will be as clever as Marc Davis. Today is not that day.

Nifty hint: Paisley makes a pretty sweet water texture.

Sam’s class, btw, was serious awesomeness. I learned So Much. I loved how analytical he was about character design and lighting. If any of you BYU-ites will be around fall semester, snag his class. It’s a super gem.
