Making some progress on this little sea films intro animation. I think it's gonna be pretty cool. I've got the sound done for it too, and it's very very simple, and I think a good fit with it. I'm animating straight through this with brush and ink, no pencil lines at all. It's a fun way to animate. Sure takes a while though.! Anymore I really prefer to film or play music than to animate, animation takes forever! Just to get a few seconds worth of movement. But I still dig it, and I think rough hand drawn animation is really cool to look at in motion.

The wind was not very cooperative while shooting these photos, waves were blowing all around.

There's a wave today on my made at home lightbox. I like animating with brush and ink. I'm missing a few cables at the moment so not testing this out on my video lunchbox(cool animation testing machine that actually looks like a lunchbox, you shoot frame by frame and it instantly plays back at 24fps...I have the first model that looks like a bomb triggering device/lunch pail). Just going straight ahead with the animation. Hopefully it will look something like a wave in motion!

2D & tubing

I'm finally getting around to starting on animation of this wave tonight. Well, this is the wave sketch it's going to be based on, though probably it will go in the opposite direction. Going to animate on paper, with brush and ink, good messy fun. If this turns out good, it's going to be an intro animation for Little Sea Films. Hang in there, the new trailer is on the way!!! Thanks for stopping by and checkin out this project.

girls and dragons

Here's a few recent pages from my travel sketchbook. Inspired by life and imagination. I posted a bunch more on the film's facebook if you'd like to take a look:

full trailer - coming soon

Above is a frame of Mikala Jones from the new trailer. This is also another poster concept that I'd like to make into an illustration and silkscreen run.

The trailer is five minutes long, and features a new Turbofire to Zenith song. Only thing I have left to finish up is a short traditionally animated Little Sea Films intro.
