What Model Sheets! What Shadow Beast!

Nate Spidgewood  wanted to take a crack at putting a team together to do a 2D animation sequence for when Cerebus is hallucinating from the effects of the Lama Lotus. We already had a storyboard that Daniel Grant did on his own initiative as well. Nate asked Brian Andersen to make some model sheets, which just came in to my surprise. Wether the 2D portion happens or not these might still be helpful for the new "interview" scenes being added to the film.

What Sanctuary! What Giant Shoulders!

"The Sanctuary" environment modeling progress by John Eyre
threeheadedfilms@gmail.com

Below floor plan of "the Sanctuary" by Oliver Simonsen approved by Dave. Since there are no references for the sidewalls John will improvise on those. As for the paintings on the wall Dave suggests using photoshop and that we can choose some from "Rick's Story" and also make them into Kickstarter bonus prints. If anyone has any favorite paintings they'd like to see from that Cerebus book let us know

Dave Sim ponders: "What if it's a hit?" I have to agree that getting this far on the film was as Dave puts it "Extremely Unlikely, as well. As in: getting hit by a comet while purchasing a $3 million winning lottery ticket Extremely Unlikely."  Pretty sure it hasn't been done before http://momentofcerebus.blogspot.com/2014/12/weekly-update-12-december-14.html
