House of Five Leaves






I just watched the first episode, and granted it was mostly a lot of talking introducing all the characters, but I didn’t mind the slow pacing, and I am really digging the designs. They aren't particularly attractive per se, but there is something about their sharp profiles, and large pupils and that low slice of a mouth. It was kinda enthralling to watch. I'm curious to see how the next episode is.

Menew



Plug for Menew, I had the honor of getting to help on this music video a while back, and now their new album is going to be released soon. So, yes, this doesn't have anything to do with animation, but yay for good music : )

Sketch


Experimenting with the construction I've been working on.

Lesson 4




I'm clearly having issues with getting the line of action right, but I'm getting a little closer to the right mass.

Squeakqual

I don't know why I'm still on a Chipmunks kick, I think that movie must have burned itself into my brain, cause I saw a preview recently, and Eleanor's character had a different design then she had in the movie. This is the way she looked in the trailer.

This is the way she looked in the same scene in the movie. What happened? Did somebody say notch up the crazy eyes, kids love that?

I'm wondering how late into making the movie it was, before the finalized her character design.
