Concept work and storyboarding I’ve done last summer on Riot’s animation “The Path”
Don't think there is any spoilers at this point since I wasn't allowed to post anything at first. Lots of outtakes and weird things that didn't make it, but that's just how it goes.
Lots of great people working on it. I was mainly assigned to the second portion of the animation, where all the darker stuff happens.
