The Worst Date BG's

Hey guys!

Thanks for all the support! Nothing satisfys us more than peoples reactions to Gruesomestein's Monsters whether good or bad. My troubles of logging on are all gone so I can finally give Mark a hand showing you guys our silly little show.

Here's a few BGs from my personal favorite episode "The Worst Date". I tried to stage things as if you were watching a play. Ian Hastings who painted the BGs added some weird shadows to help frame the action.

Ian had a great time painting these as you can tell. But he expressed how challenging it was to paint tonally. Color can be a crutch sometimes.

The following shot was the only shot that broke the "stage it like a play" rule. It was added to setup atmosphere. We needed to setup the spooky castle really fast and thought it would be best served with this downshot. It would have been nice to set up more mood but in a 5 minute short we needed the time for the story.

Thanks again for the encouraging words,

GREEEEEEEEEEEEAT stuff. Love the camera angles as well as the definition of values. GREAT STUFF.
I'm really impressed with your stuff man. You have so many talents all wrapped up into one. You can really tell you spent a lot of thought and effort into making each sketch/piece into it's own idea. What can I say man, I really enjoy your work. I will bookmark your blog and make sure I keep comin' back for more. Thanks for the coffee breaks in the morning, REALLY fun stuff.

If you get time, please check out my blog and let me know what you think. Thanks!
