This is for Sheridan College's Animation Portfolio. 3/5 Additional Works.
This piece actually has some kind of meaning to it. As you all know, or if you don't..well, the lynx featured here, is my personal character, Nicole. She's pretty much a representation of myself, who I enjoy drawing in personal pieces such as this one. Its nice to have a character to represent you as an artist, instead of drawing yourself all the time.
Anyway, last summer I discovered an amazing thing. I thought it was a plane, or some ash from a fire floating in the sky while I was at Carson's Camp; a campground I go to at Sauble Beach every summer.
I was amazed by it, and had absolutely no idea what it was. A few nights later, going for a night bike ride with my sister and dad, we saw a large family with a huge 4ft paper bag looking thing, releasing them into the air in an open field. I realized that was what I saw that night, floating in the air. Sky lanterns. I then began seeing them everywhere. I watched Tangled, and sure enough, it was in that movie and I didn't even know it was. I saw them all over the internet, on tv, everywhere.
And my friend who I made the album cover for, he has a few..or had, a few but released them on christmas. I was shocked. Its one of the things I really want to do soon.
So, my goal for this summer is get together with all the friends I've hung out with over the years in high school, or maybe just this year; have them over at my house for a camp fire in the backyard, purchase a few of these lanterns, and go to the field beside my house to release them; each of us making a wish and hoping for the best in our first year of college.
That's my plan for the summer, either before or after school ends.
So ya, that's my little story to go with this drawing. Inspirations came from experience, reference photos, and music (music mainly being anything by Emancipator. Honestly, go check out their work <3 )

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh.......... That's my favorite scene from Tangled.... And that's freaking amazing that you got to witness it actually happening not once, but twice! That's such a good idea. There's something just utterly and completely human about sending your thoughts up and wishing for something better. Beautiful piece, it and the meaning behind have some great depth to them. Really invokes a sense of wonder and magic, maybe even of longing for something I can't name. I listened to this while looking at this: [link]
