Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: colors



The story of the anim yet is simple: the strange behavior of a little girl who becomes savage.
an employee is late, in her car, in a traffic jam: then she becomes totally crazy, she begins to move like a monkey. She runs and jumps to arrive to her office. But when she becomes like she was before, we see that the life in the office looks like a jungle too.

This is the story yet, but it can change. But I like the idea to animate a smart girl who moves like a monkey.
Here is a link where you can find the first version of the animatic:
animatic

there is a lot of thing to change, but it gives me an idea of the duration...


I tried to choose a character to put some colors, my goal is to have a non-contour render, and keep a "hand drawn" touch.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Model Sheet girl



model sheet, i don't know yet if she'll have pants, I think the skirt is funnier to animate when she'll move like a monkey ;)
I want to have this kind of design during the whole animation.

Hi jayf

Is always a pleasure look European style, very mature and personal, you pass this drawing to 3d? i really interesting to see this amazing style in 3d, not the usual 3d style is more like Spain Torres style or a graphics Tardi, very lucky i see your WIP.

wow, love your style! the drawings and character designs are beautiful. Animation? great! Im looking forward to seeing this one.

PS - cool animatic! Although the end confuses me slightly - the animals at the end?

I really like what you are doing. It has personality and style, I can almost imagine it animated. Keep working, it looks superb!

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: animation test



Here is an animation test, to see how the model moves. I animated it directly in flash, this is really cool to have fast results. But for the acting scene, I'll animate with pencils.
Here is the animation: TEST_CYCLE
Any comments?
Well, I'll work on the color keys, and environment. I think I'll make a mix between collage and 3d (with a lot of cam map :)

sadrack> thanks, but i won't pass it to 3d, I hate setup and rigging :p and 2d is not dead!

PinkParasol, siavashKhodaie> thaaanks ^^

nethken, FractalRene> yeah this model was made to be animated ^^
the animatic? huhu... the end is very approximative, in fact I wanted to show that the life in office is like a jungle (we see monkeys with their phone, etc.) but I don't have found the tip to make it understandable.

I'll second that. As much as I like 3D animation, it seems like the attitude today is that 2D animation is obsolete. Never mind all the brillant 2D animation that's been done over the years. I'm glad folks like you are keeping 2D animation alive -- and I very much like the style you're giving to this particular animation. Keep up the good work!

thanks to you vmulligan and csdani. Yeah, for the big studios 2d is obsolete, but i hope that is only transitory.
Even if I learned 3d, I still think that there are things you can't do with 3d animation (or with a crazy setup, and lot of patience!)
