01_Pretitle Hook_Elements CAMERA SHAKE (0-00-00-00) 01_Pretitle Hook_Elements CAMERA SHAKE (0-00-02-22)


This is the additional pre-title card scene that I mentioned a few posts ago. I’m glad I did, it was a fun break from the sort of strict character animation I’ve been doing.

Style Frames and Character Design

Working on some style frames before I tart production. The final product probably won’t turn out exactly like this. But this kind of stuff is important because after 6 months of animation, after I’ve lost my mind, I’ll be able to remember some of my intentions.

I think i’m going to spend a lot more time on the clouds for the final product- like my old marker drawings. Here are some color variations and another frame:

Sketches for a scene that I’m adding before the title card:

Now, for my own benefit, I’m going to write down what’s coming next:

Tonight I make my detailed production schedule. Tomorrow I do animation tests to figure out my production process and shading technique. Maybe do some marker cloud studies. If I do all of that before 5, I may have time to work on a gif to submit to loopdeloop.

Lastly- good ol’ Andrew is going to fabricate his puppets for his thesis. Here are some clean-ups I did of some of his puppet designs:
