Almost ready to animate.

Hey guys! Made lots of progress since my last blog post!

I got the storyboard done, plenty of good shots on there that put this weird grin on my face every time I look at them, some I'm not sure about but it all depends on how it looks and how it works in the animation, I have other ideas stuffed up my sleeve which I'm ready to pull out if a specific shot doesn't look right.

Since I wont be messing around making loads of armatures for my characters, the character wont take long to finish. I don't plan on finishing the characters today as I'll be spending today cleaning and throwing out some old things I've had since I was a kid to make room for other cool things, I have three or four character done though, all of which were done in one sitting, except one character that I made before I finalized this project idea, that character was what gave me the idea for the project.

I may as well throw up some pictures here so this isn't too boring, nothing special though. It's just the usual stuff you see from me, which is the whole point here, trying to master a specific style before I take too much of a step forward into other styles.

I changed the four legged creature a little because I wasn't happy with it, the eye was annoying and it ended up getting "Smushed" into the clay, so he has a tongue instead. The dead guy actually has an armature, you may be wondering why? That, will have to wait.

Hopefully there is a familiar type of vibe going on here, but if not that's also good because then whilst it feels familiar and fun to me it will be fresh for you guys!

If I wasn't planning on cleaning up today, I would have got the rest of the characters done and then the following day I would be animating, I'm not messing around with this project as you can see, trying to get it done properly rather than starting it, then losing interest and coming back to it weeks later, I have done that enough times.

That's all I have to share for now, this is going to be the last update on my blog till I finish the animation. I have shared enough information and pictures for now, if I share any more then the whole viewing experience will not be as fun!
