One of the ducks. There are layers for each of the feet, the wing, the body and the parts of the beak.

a farm scene

22 Dec

Another backdrop from the animation I’m working on…a farm. The green thing in the middle is a pen for ducks and geese (and their heads pop out during the video).

Kip Rainey on Mandolin

13 Dec

Here I have the final member of Tangleweed, Kip Rainey. I drew 9 heads for him since he is one of the vocalists for this song. I didn’t bother making more than one of each hand this time. For the first scene he’s in I’m doubtful that anyone will even really notice that he’s not really strumming. My boyfriend and I were watching Metalocolypse clips to see how they animate instrument playing. The animators for that cartoon let the hands stay still and the arm takes care of all of the movement. And I have a feeling that is how most animated cartoons are made…but if his scene was longer I would probably put more detail into it.

Paul W. and the Suitbass

10 Dec

Here’s Paul W. from Tangleweed. He plays a bass that he made out of a vintage suitcase! For Paul I made 3 heads and two hands. So far I’ve only used one of the heads but might use others for other scenes.

Scott Judd

5 Dec

The guitarist for Tangleweed. He has 3 heads (for some head-banging action), 3 right arms for strumming, and 2 hands for fretting. I was going to do more hands for fretting but I have a feeling most people aren’t going to be looking that close (and those scenes are 5-10 seconds long). If I have time I might get more detailed with that (and add strings).

Billy Oh

Billy Oh from the upcoming music video I’m working on. I made about 9 heads and all of the limbs are separate layers so they can move. This will probably only be in about 10 seconds of the video!

I’m on a roll!

28 Nov

I worked on scene two most of today. I have about 24 seconds completed of this video (this includes the opening credits so I have about 2 more minutes to go). This shot just shows the backdrop and the character. The body parts are all separate layers. This isn’t a three headed fox either. I made three different heads to help with the animation. He’ll be single-headed in the film. Also in the flash version there are clouds and a moon.
