Characters: Backyard Bully Promo

Hello forum.

Here is a Promo pic for my upcoming short entitled Backyard Bully.
You like the style?

Some background infromation for you folks.

The boy's name is Squirrel Boy. He is based off of me when I was 6 years old.

The kitty is roughly based off of one of my cats from my childhood days named Topaz. I just call her KittyWitty. Isn't she cute?

The squirrel is just called Squirrel.
He's the bully. Bad squirrel!!!!




1280x1024 Desktop.

O and as always share your critiques. Id love to hear them!!

I love the style!
Very stylized and toony.

comments...

The shadow of the characters doesn't seem to show up quite well so the characters doesn't seem to be planted on the ground...

Overall... great work! I love to see you'll animation when it's finished.

Naw the cat doesn't eat the squirrel, thats too mean for my short film.
There is a confilict between the squirrel and kitten though. But nothing too severe.
Its all fun in the backyard.



Back to work on it.

Heh I remember that kitty so cute and the animation was wonderful. though the humping the camera? for shame :P

the squirrels tail looks a little off to me, looks more like a pine cone almost. i guess it works though with the overall flow and look. so ignore me

the composition is quite nice. one thing is looking at the tree is the knot the bump continues from the rest of the tree. something tells me that is not how it would be.

I decided to show a bit more of the squirrel since he was hard to see in the promo pic.

Here's a little rig test I did.
The six pack ring is a cloth object for my squirrel.
I modeled it on for the two struggleing pics and the last pic is the cloth object draped.
It will be a part of my squirrel for this short.

The render's are nothing special just a key and fill with 2 eyelights.

The rig kicks ass. Thanks to Jason Schleifer and his Integrating an Animation Rig into a Creature Pipeline works..(make any sense?)
Ive used the technique on my squirrel and boy so far and I think im gonna throw one onto my cat now!!




iMag - Hehehe Im glad you remembered that. So i'll guess you'll like this too then.

elastic - Heheh squirrels are funny.

Thanks guys.
Cheers

cool job here. i really like it, esp. the cat you did it really well she'll steal the show from the squirrel & the squirrelboy
nice idea there with the squirrel and that cloth object (bottle holder?) can wait to see the anim. btw about the boys hair how would you rig it?

oh yea just a little suggestion perhaps you could do more with the boys soccer outfit textures? take one of yr fave team or something...
and about the squirrel hell be cutter if you make his lower belly a bit fatter and wider.

goodluck with the anim

Im so stoked that you guys like this.

eLm0 - YES!!! ehehe im glad you found it humorous. Boy running into brick wall. GREAT IDEA. Ive done that and it was funny!!
Maybe we'll see it on a rig test for the boy... BIG MAYBE!


raden - Your not the first to mention that. But I based it off me as a kid and I never had jersey's. I always made up my own team and we were always the best. I was always the star player and we never lost....Id wear the shirt so much that id get mustard and ketchup all over it usually.. HEHEHE man I wanna be 6 again.
Ill throw an actual jersy on him and see how it looks.


Thanks guys.
Cheers
