Establishing shot idea 2

I was thinking maybe trying some new angles,go all artsy like that triumphant movie Battlefield earth and have a lot of crooked angles

establishing shot

What I've been working on today,Its not shaded in but I don't know there is something not right about it,I'm finding the background horizon hard so I'll probably add something to it at some point.It's based on my old school so It's a lot from memory.

Back ground work

Laptop crash

I lost 2 days of work due to my laptop completly crashing.I couldn't turn it on past the lock screen and it took a 2 hour wait just to get that far.In the end I spent all last night night tinkering around and returning my laptop to factory settings.I was really lucky I manged to save all my recordings as on first reboot of my files they didn't work,Luckily I saved everything onto a usb doing some weird complicated stuff and after 7 hours managed to reinstall everything.My laptop is really slow at the minute tho but just glad I saved everything

I've redesigned Public for the next Private/Public Cartoon.The old style was this forced flash style I was never very comfortable drawing so I've fixed it up to be more in my comfort zone.Biggest challenge was the hair,Starting with the front view it was so difficult to figure out how it would look from differn't angles.The two on the far left were the hardest to figure out,I think I've done it to a level that while it maybe wouldn't be the way it would actually be in real life,It looks good enough that you don't question it.It's also a big step up from the old turnaround which looks ridiculously awful now,I think I'm learning.I like to do 8 angles like this because it just makes it easier long term for certain angles and point of view.I didn't change the design of the clothes much other then he is wearing some weird turtle neck jumper rather then a red hoody,Maybe it will catch on.
