City Of the Beasts Reel

Forgot to upload this...
This was the final reel I created for my group, for the City of the Beasts project.

Adobe Ebook

For our latest project in BFA, we worked in groups for a competition to create an ebook for the story, "The Husband Who Was to Mind the House."

Here is the first page, used for a poster. The characters are poseable.

A simple guide I made for my group.

A few of the layouts I did, with values.
