Really quick post. Gonna chug some Nyquil and conk out afterwards. ...Or wait for the Warhammer MMO to finish downloading. Dwarf tank, awww yeeeah.
Massart representin' at Ottawa! And Kara totally owned at awards night with her film. Fabulous stuff, go look!
So I always get back from Ottawa feeling totally inspired and needing to make stuff. This time I'll actually do it because I'm sick of being lazy. So far I hit the ground running. Pre-production like whoa for a Vanlande & Warrick animation. Conceptualizing a script, started a test walk cycle for Vanlande and started trying to lock down a style for her. Getting closer, still not right. My pencil sketches look worlds better than my Flash ones, so I may end up doing ink and paper for this...
Enjoy some half-assed texture variants on one of the style tests. She'll be animated, printed on aged looking paper (or textured like hell in photoshop, we'll see how that goes) cut out, and reanimated in stop motion sets alongside Warrick in all his puppety glory.
Major inspiration for this short is coming from Stephane Berla's video for "Tais-toi mon coeur" and Anthony Lucas' "The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello". Both are amazing, go watch them as well.
I think it's Nyquil time.
MY GOD IT'S FULL OF STARS.
