Project 4: Pre Finalized Sketches

Hi professor,

I created some pre finalized sketches ln what the final drawing will look like. I really really like the 3rd drawing I did where alice turns into a full on demon and lost her hunanity and shes eating the queen of hearts eyeball  and the scene in the background is the scene where the queen was playing croquet. But the playing courtyard is ruined by the queens body parts being scattered around. So I might finalize the 3rd drawing and make it look a lot better I hope yiu like it when I bring the other version on tuesday

Project 4 Proposal

Story: The Seven Ravens
Author: the Brothers Grimm (Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm)

Proposal 1
Genre: Dark Sci-Fi/Dystopian
Setting: Munich, Germany
Rated X (NC-17)
Summary: In this modern alternate universe everything takes a drastic turn where all of the characters that you know and will get to know undergo horrifying deformities, mutilation, deaths, torture. Anything that you can imagine happening to the characters will not be for the faint-hearted. Ten years after the event of the “missing” seven brothers their father (a former scientist throughout the experiments of MK Ultra) tells his one daughter who was the youngest of the siblings, “you have brothers you’d never met. You can find them at the castle that stands on the glass-mountain. Godspeed you for the twisted horrors you will witness.” She takes the journey onward, discovers a key throughout her two days and approaches the entrance of the castle. At the castle she discovers it is no ordinary castle but a prison and research facility where her brothers have been imprisoned where they are tortured, exposed to radiation poisoning, mutilated, deformed and drugged by the scientists (whom Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm are one of many) to control their mutation (their development of growing wings that resemble that of a raven’s.)

Proposal 2
Genre: Fantasy
Setting: Central City, USA
Rated PG
Summary: In this alternate reality the seven brothers who are your typical adolescent individuals are given a request by their father to head on over to the supermarket to get food for the house. the boys get dressed and are laughing and joking until they catch the arrival of an oncoming meteorite at the late evening sky. The meteorite lands towards a nearby forest and the curious youngsters run towards the crash site and discover it having vibrant-colored crystals from its interior. The boys are astonished but then begin to feel weary and pass-out from the radiation. Waking up minutes later they discover themselves each having wings as black as ravens and wings as big as cows. Amazed by their transformation they all fly home and crash through their roof onto the living room floor scaring their parents and baby sister. Excited and happy, the boys laugh and their parents confused as to what had happened.

Then the robotic red riding hood will be on a mission on rescuing her grandma. The story will focus on the final battle between the robotic red riding and the robotic wolf. The two characters will use a lot of advanced technical weapons. At the end the robotic red riding hood wins the fight and saves her grandma.

Project 4 – Proposals

Here is my proposal for project 4, the handout said I was suppose to post it so here it is!

Story: Tortoise and the Hare                                Author: Aesop

Proposal 1:

Change: Setting

  • The setting will be on a modern day race track
  • The main story will be similar to the original story: The only minor adjustments that will be placed are how the hare “sleeps”. He will be sleeping in his car dreaming about his next sponsorship. (I imagined the dialogue like this: Hey tortoise. Your car has no sponsors. You see all those brands on my car? That proves I’m better… *While he’s sleeping* Green Giant… Sponsor me… Please…)
  • Audience: Children

Proposal 2:

Change: Genre – Horror

  • The setting will be in a haunted forest near the village. (village will be where the beginning challenge sequence occurs)
  • The story will be similar to the original story. When the rabbit decides to sleep spirits gather around him and abduct him into the *dramatic voice* SHADOW REALM (I’m joking). But the haunted spirits will abduct the hare and the tortoise the new found champ, everybody doesn’t notice where the hare went.
  • Audience: Young Adult

If you want to know more, or hear me say “Shadow Realm” in my dramatic voice you can ask me in class. Thanks!
