Our Pitch Project

About Our Project

The Taffetas is an animated series for girls about a bubbly Atlantean who tries to start a new life in a city filled with characters from myth and lore.

We are creating a pitch bible based on our concept.

About Our Tumblr

Our tumblr serves as an informal peek into some the artwork we develop for the series.

We also supplement our posts with fan work and fun sketches you won’t see on our official production blog.

Talk to us

Contact us directly by emailing info@thetaffetaspitch.com!. You can always share your thoughts through Comments, Asks, or by finding us on our Facebook Fan Page & Production Blog.

We follow the tags #veil-and-gemini or #The Taffetas!

About Us

Yesenia Carrero and Tracy MacLauchlan are best friends residing in Kansas City, MO where they work as artists by day and develop The Taffetas by night.

Have you guys heard about hitrecord? Just for inspiration?Anonymous

We hadn’t heard about it until you asked, Anon!

Aside from the cool projects to see, It seems like an exciting initiative. The open source aspect to the production pipeline is exactly the kind of collaboration that the internet has made possible, and creatives should explore more :).

Thank you! Feel free to send us any more comments or questions through our ask, guys.

OK SO I GOT CARRIED AWAY AND THUS LATEFor Tracey Maclaclan aka saetje because birthdays, and awesomeness, and I could swear I read somewhere that Elena was a barista and now she’s very upset that we’re still there because she needs to shut shop.

Thank you so much!! Yes, Elena is indeed a barista! Your color choices here are fantastic, teal and orange are so trendy and gorgeous together, and I really enjoy your rendering style. Those little details- the seams in her pants, the bows on her shoes, the specials on the chalkboard (haha), etc. really bring an added quality to the piece and I sincerely appreciate you spent so much time on a picture for me! I love this!PS: Hey ygrafix, check it out!

Planning on Vector Tutorial

saetje:

by DemonGemini6


Hi guys!
I’ve been asked to do a intermediate tutorial on how I do my “Vector” style artwork for the Taffetas. I’m wondering if people would prefer a live demo, via Livestream (so if you have any particular questions), or a video demo of some of my tips and tricks.

I’ll be mostly going over:
 • Soft Shading In Ai and how I handle light sources and blushes
 • Masking and grouping elements
 • Easy Line-work Tricks - and how to get nice Thick-Thins
 • My general process, favorite shortcuts, and misc tips along the way

Read more

HEY GUYS. Yesenia will give another Adobe Illustrator tutorial!

She is the final rendering artist for Taffetas and does amazing, complex vector images from my drawings. Don’t miss out! Get your word in on what you’d like to see before she starts and keep an eye out for the post date!

My first charity Commission for Autism Awareness Day, also known as Onsie Wednesday!
This is for the lovely saetje of her characters Veil (the shy blue guy) and Gemini (the adorable huggable girl). I’ve been following the development of these characters for a long time, so how happy I was to get to draw them both <3
The money for these onsie-themed commissions is all going to charity, and I still have 6 slots left at £10/$17 each! If anyone wants to commish a picture and help raise awareness of autism, then send me a note or maybe reblog to pass on the message :3

This is the most amazing commission I’ve ever got, AND my money goes to a great cause! Definitely consider buying one, friends!- Tracy

It’s Elementary, Dear Watson
Some happy birthday gift art to Saetje, of her character Veil. It’s fun seeing how he’s developed over the years, so I thought I’d incorporate some of his design elements into a more graphic pic. Literally. Wokka wokka. Have a good one!
