My Monkey!

Hey everyone! I'm posting in December! That means there won't be a gap in my monthly archives.. :P

Anyways, this is a post dedicated entirely to my 30 second action analysis project that we 3rd years were working on at school this semester. Below I have some character model sheets and the background I used for my animation. The model sheets are hand drawn and inked, and coloured in Photoshop and the background was done in Illustrator. I've also attached a 6 second clip of the animation, which is basically the only thing out of the 30 worth watching because its coloured and composited.. the rest is rough animation thats basically there to fill up the 30 seconds. So.. I hope you enjoy! The monkey's name is Carlos, because Carlos did the voice for him (in a scene that's still rough animation.. so I may post it later). Check out his stuff at pretoanimation.blogspot.com

Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Kwazy Kwanzaa, Tip Top Tet, and a solemn, dignified Ramadan, everyone! See you in 2008!
