shot #06


Here is another character that I've been working on. He shows up in shot #06. He doesn't do much but I had a heck of a time getting all those shell colors to animate. I think there is a level of detail when it comes to animated characters that may be just too much. Lesson learned. On to the next shot.


Much of the inspiration for the animation style came from a cycle test of a turtle walking I did awhile ago. It worked, so I decided to up the complexity of the characters. The original can still be seen on YouTube.

With the minor characters looking so nice I can tell the movie is going to kick butt.
