Progress



Just a quick update on the progress of the characters as they are melded into their final forms. There's still a bit more tweaking that need to be done to each of them, just to make them easier to animate. The boards are looking pretty tight for this short film story, now the exciting work begins with animation tests! My hand is just itching to flip some more paper again. It's been interesting while creating these characters since it's been an exploration of the self and the deep dark inner workings of a character and why they tick. Thanks to Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston for reminding me what it means to make a character live and breathe.

Until next time!

Cheers,
