log lines + moodboards

A muscular rookie ballerina struggles to fit in with ballet’s stereotypical ’tiny’ image.

bendy, more dynamic styles and loose, ink-like lines to accentuate the dance movement. coloring in large blocks of monochrome with bright accent colors. ‘flowing fabric’ clothing motion. ‘nostalgic’ colors and textures.


A round penguin struggles with its inability to slide toboggan-style.

‘mint ice/toothpaste’ style colors and texture: smooth and crystalline. simple character style and smooth lines for more flexible animation.



A lonely little girl struggles to make her depressed older brother smile.

‘cluttered but lived-in’ grainy and rough textures and backgrounds. nostalgic, small character design and ink strokes.
