My animation desk:
Brainstorming: How would and old lady carry a mountain?
Muji drawers from Singapore for my pens!
The ‘Seolmundae Wall’.
References from Naewatdang, an old shamanist shrine on Jeju.
To ground the story visually, I started the concept art stage by drawing Seolmundae Halmang into photos I took while in Jeju.
A tiny Seolmundae maquette!
Printouts of some watercolours I painted in Jeju for reference.
Watercolour studies for Jeju.
Studies for jeju Sky and Snow … I even tried painting with eyeshadow to get ultra-soft blends.
Storyboard ideas for the scene when the villagers admit they cannot finish Seolmundae’s dress.
Seolmundae Halmang wades into Muljang Ori.
