Scene inside a taxi complete!

Here is a scene which takes place inside a taxi as Toko and Carl drive around New York one night.I like where the camera is positioned on the two characters because it shows the conversation between them without having to switch to different views of the characters.

Final Poster

Final poster for Stranded
I may need to change the shadows on the water a little bit but this is the final poster !


Here is my design for the poster for my series.
I am unsure where to put the main title on the poster , im not sure if to have it

In mid air

The bottom right hand corner

Or the title like a wooden sign sticking out of the water

Or maybe the sign being on a little island

Final Logo For Series

Here is the final title or logo for my series.I think it portrays the story of my series very well.
It has things associated with being on a dessert island like the palm trees and a small island.
To show that there will be more to the series than just two men stranded on a island i have also included a skull and spear on the logo.I feel this shows without giving to much away that they are not alone on the island.
I decided to stick with the red writing for the title because i think it looked the best out of all my colour tests.
As i said before i think it works well because red connotes danger and Carl and Toko will be in danger.

Series Logo

I have a few ideas for the title or logo of my series.
It will be call Stranded and on the title along with the name i will have objects that to relate to the overall story.
For example i could have...
The island
A tribal mask
A skull and spear
A palm tree

Here i have chosen the text i will use for the logo.
I think this font works because it looks ancient or looks like it would be seen on a temple wall.

Here are a few colour tests for the title
I will have two planks of wood behind the title,i decided to have this to show that they could be parts off the ship that got washed up on the island.
I personally like the red one because i feel it connotes danger.

Here are a few quick ideas for the logo

Jungle Background 2 (Not finished)

Here is a second jungle background i am working on.It has a foreground and a background.The background being the hut where the girl Moani lives, and the foreground is made up of a few trees and wildlife with a sper rested up against a tree.
This background isn't finished yet as i need to add more shadows and textures in places.
At the moment it is one of my favourite backgrounds ive done and im happy with how it looks.Almost complete though!
