OLD WORK - Nike Mishmash by Inkthinker OLD WORK - Nike Mishmash by Inkthinker
Digging around in some archive folders, and I found a bunch of the early design work that I did for the "Nike Women" commercials back in 2008.

As usual, anything older than three years gets labeled as "old work" in the hopes that the more embarrassing mistakes will be be forgiven. If you ain't seen 'em, for context:

I had forgotten how much rough pre-production work I did, since mostly what I remember were the marathon animation weeks we did from November to January getting all three spots out with a crew of three or four animators and one key animator (guess who?). It was some fun times.

Some of these sketches are from proposals that didn't go through. I had one I wanted to do that would have been all Koike-style high-contrast and extreme angles, with the runner firing off at the starting pistol only for the camera to turn and show that she's running up the side of a building, leaping over obstacles and finally running up the spire and leaping into the sky.

Sadly, the director didn't go for it. Oh well, them's the cookies.

Also in there are alternate costumes for various pitches, the early, unused costume designs for the Meteor Hero, and the original Boxer and the Sandbag Monster, which was a lot scarier when it had teeth instead of Oogie-Boogie stitches.

All Cintiq and Photoshop work. 2008 Humoring the Fates and Nike.

super slick pre-production work! I'd have no trouble moving forward with a project if I had these to guide me. I remember seeing the finished animation when I'd just started college-- got tons of chills and inspiration.
