rough room

Roughing out the room in blue and adding details. Its important where you put all the objects. Everything is there for a reason, its not random. :) One thing you dont want is too much stuff in the room, after all, it is a animation background. It need room for the character to move. So too much is no good.

layout floorplan

Edward's layout floorplan.
Before we do any drawing of the room, I usually ask the student to do floorplans of different room, then try to put the "camera" in an interesting location and see which layout work better.

rough layout

Jade's rough layout sketch. It is just a really early sketch of how the room will be. Once you have a general idea of where everything are, it will be easiler to add all the details.
