Completed Action Analysis

Finally composited and finished! Here's a video of Mr. Fluffy jumping into a pond. Working on this, watching him jump repeatedly... again and again...

Character cleanup (ToonBoom)

Layout field guides

Painted Layout (paint tool sai) was going for winnie the pooh-esque light atmosphere.

I wish I didn't crop the layout so tight... the overlays and multiplane pan wasn't really working after I did the layout testing. I might try and finish the boy's animation or use his base as practice for a rig in toonboom. It was a big learning experience and though I started out with an aversion to the program, I think I've learned enough to sort of get the gist of a bit of it. :)

Creature Creation

Posts for my school blog too! Thought more of fairy tales for this assignment, so I looked at work like John Bauer, Helen Stratton, ... old timey- illustrated books. I remember how immersed I'd get in those amazing printed ink illustrations; this was a lot of fun even if I didn't capture that.

The life drawings I did and used as reference/inspiration

Transformation - The sequential part. I did this pretty rushed... plenty of better ways to go about it, and more clearly!
