Shades of Dawn Backgrounds
Description: Background Design and Color Script. Digital Illustrations.
These are the background designs developed for the pilot of Association of Broken Concepts’ web series. ABC (Association of Broken Concepts) is a conglomeration founded by Mataconarte and The Folsom Project to work with other emerging artists to create a variety of projects, ranging from songs and album releases, to short films and web or print comics.
The project was co created with The Folsom Project and Brenda Los. The character design, storyboard, color script, background design, prop design, fx animation and character animation was developed and produced by Mataconarte. The sound design, casting, and recording of all the audio was developed and supervised by The Folsom Project. The project is being developed entirely in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects.
The style is heavily inspired by early 2000’s kids animation from Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. The point was to reappropriate the style that many young adults would recognize from their childhood but appealing to the type of stories this audience is consuming nowadays.
Here is the color script and some of the backgrounds colored and sketched.
