Life of Dupie Episode 1 Animation WIP

Hi, my name is Jorge Flores, I am a student animator and I have a concept idea called "Life of Dupie". I am currently trying to complete the rigs for the two characters, "Mr. Dupie" and "Flake". I will post up my concept art, animatic, and idea. Please feel free to coment on anything. I will continue to post up work as I go. This is my final project for the school and I will be moving on to Animation Mentors next year.

I couldnt attach the animatic, so I just posted the storyboard. Its fairly rough, but there is some cuts that I did not include in the storyboard.

excellent planning on this, you seem to have it all figured out. the storyboard does have a feel of being a episode tho. guessing you have many more planned out? this one is relatively simple and seems like a good place to start off.

Thanks, yeah its a lot of planning, only to do a mere 30 second animation. I just hope it comes out like how I plan it too. The facial animation will hopefully look really nice and organic

Neat, I'll certainly be tracking your progress on this.

I hope no dialogue will be involved in this short animation, because I'm really hoping to see some convincing body and facial animation acted out.

The two characters look really cool. I can just imagine Dusty saying, "hello, I'm a mac" and Mr. Dupie following up with, "and I'm a PC", lol.

Hehehe, thats funny. No there won't be dialogue, since this is noobish, it will be simple animation following the storyboard and done to my best potentials. Actually, thinking futuristically, if this were to be a cartoon series, I feel it could be done really nicely and it would be very entertaining and funny.

wow, you have put a lot of planning into this. I like the storyboard. It looks like it'll be very subtle animation, which isn't all that easy imo. I would also like to actually be able to see your mouth blends REALLY hard to see with that tiny little picture you posted

Yea the mouth blends pic i took was teeny tiny. I'll post up newer stuff as soon as I make more blend shapes and I will make the size larger. I just had to redo lots of things that costed me some days. So yeah, keep posted
