Hey! I made this one for the Cup o'doodle blog (link here). You take one of the lines/shapes and make a doodle with it. :)

Chapelle Saint-Charles

I went to a concert last month :)

It was really good, and I realised how much I miss classical music...well, music in general. I have no time for any other activities besides Gobelins, and I wouldn't like to feel like I'm not doing everything I can at school now. I guess music will have to wait a little bit longer.

The musicians were Labros Caravassilis (flute), Thibault Noally, Alexandrine Caravassilis (violins) and Lika Laloum (viola)

Another speed painting, 1h, based on a photograph that I've found on the facebook page "Médicos sem Fronteiras" (Doctors Without Borders). There were no credits in the picture, though, so I don't know who's the photographer...

Speed painting

A 1h30 speed painting based on a pic by a friend (Marcia Trento)! And two WIPs of it. The best thing about working digitally is that I don't have to scan the image... I guess I'm getting lazy.

Little creature, big creature.

I have no idea where these two came from, they came out directly like that... I wonder what's going to happen next.

Hey, for those that do not know this, I have a tumblr as well. I post more drawings here, but tumblr is easier to follow, so:

Les Matelots - Animation Cycle

Les Matelots - Animation test from Viviane Guimaraes on Vimeo.

This is an animation test that I did during my internship at La Cachette for the short movie Les Matelots. The character was designed by Julien Chheng, and since this is just a test, this is not the final design or rendering of the character/movie. It was really nice animating it though :)

Lip Sync!

Yayy finally! I finished this one last week but I wanted to scan the images, here they are now. And some images are not so good, we can't see every detail...too bad :/ 
I don't think I'm ever doing clean up on paper again... it's so much easier to do it digitally. I do prefer to do the rough animation on paper, though!

It goes without saying that the characters are Mushu and Cri-Kee from Mulan, so they belong to Disney.
The sound is an excerpt from Pulp Fiction.

Another one for 4forFan, the theme was greek gods/goddesses. 

Artemis is the goddess of hunt, animals and wilderness; she is usually portrayed as a young girl in hunting clothing. I wanted to add to her design by making her doe eyed and with a bow made of stag horns, since the deer was her favorite animal.

I did this for the 4forFan group on facebook, the theme of the week was Samurai!
And I can't believe it...I finished it 30 minutes ago and I don't like it already. It usually takes 1 week... too bad :P

Mico Leão Dourado

This one is in my tumblr since july but I forgot to post it here :D
I asked at my internship and for the moment I can't post anything. TOP SECRET stuff hahaha maybe in January... guess I have the obligation to keep working on personal stuff so this place won't be abandoned. Oh my, what a problem.

Frankfurt Hotel/News

I started my internship at La Cachette, that's why I haven't been posting my drawings these last days...I have a lot of new stuff, but I don't know if I'm allowed to show them, gotta check that at the studio :)
Aaaand I'm back working in an "old" (2012) animation project, I'm really happy with it! I'm rewriting the script, character design...I'll storyboard it today. Hope it gets better than the previous version...

Copa do mundo: Brasil x Holanda

Soooo since it was pretty clear that Brazil wasn't gonna win this match against Netherlands (I didn't think it would be so different after the last Brazil x Germany), I decided that it would be better to just practice my drawing! 

(I don't have a scanner and I'm on vacation, so apparently I'll have to survive with pics and bad quality images until september arrives!)

I saw this kid one day at the subway, coming back home from Gobelins. She wasn't torturing any poor cat, but she did have a bee backpack! Just lovely :)

I really enjoy drawing little kids, specially girls. There goes another one! :)

And I decided to change the layout as well...Bye bye hungry caterpillar!

DIsney Art Challenge

And the Disney Art Challenge is done! Now we are allowed to publish our drawings. I wasn't among the 17 chosen, but it was nice to participate on it. I don't really like my illustration anymore, but I'm always like that with my drawings... I'm used to it. 

You may see (and vote for) them here:

And btw, the theme was "Dans les airs" (In the Air? I wonder if this is the best translation)

Last sketches of Annecy

I didn't want to walk around the festival with a sketchbook because my bag was already really I drew on the festival guide :)
I don't have a scanner (vacation, hey!) and the photos are really bad, but we get the idea. 

Les Écoliers

Some character design that I was doing for a really short animation sequence, based on different walks and personalities. I probably won't make the sequence, I did the rough animation and I learned a lot with it...but I want to do other stuff than walks :)

Lac d'Annecy

I just came back from Frankfurt, did some sketches there and I hope to upload them soon... but for now I'll leave some observational sketches made in Annecy right before the Festival! :)

Gare d'Annecy

I just came back from the animation festival in Annecy! It was awesome, got to talk with a lot of people, watched a lot of screenings/work in progress... but I had some time to sketch a little bit, so I'll be posting them during the week.

2D Walk - Chel

I posted this one with the 3D background but not by itself!

And the videos with the same animation:
