Color Keys Yay!

I was tasked with making 8 color keys for our short based on our storyboards, beat boards, and animatics. At this point, we really only have a detailed beat board animatic, and so we decided in order to get a bit more detail, one of us would have to sketch a more detailed rendering of parts of our story we know for sure. We wanted to focus on the environment for the color key, so we decided 8 points in the story to focus on and make into more detailed sketches. So far, I have received 2 from Eric (one with the zombie in the living room, human clean), and 1 from Violet (the ending scene where they are all on the couch together). I started the two Eric graciously drew for me and filled in color based on our previous color palette ideas for human clean and monster clean, with some liberties given on the zombie. Since this was the first time I had really done any sort of 2D art in a digital medium, I wasn't upset about how it came out. I will continue to focus on getting those refined with critiques from Eric and the group, and eventually work on the other illustrations when they become available. Below are the two beats that I colored so far.
