sid gets off the boat

hi friends,
first off,
here are some great forest backgrounds from disney's paul bunyan short. i wish i had known about these sooner.

and secondly, here is an animation and compositing test from the boat scene.




i think that hilda looks too young, so i will change her outfit to a sporty jumpsuit/windbreaker i remember that grandma had. i also remember hilda throwing sidney a banana from inside the boat and sidney missing it. then we watched the banana float away into the sun.

happy late summer!

Sidney on the run

hi friends,
this week i made an animation and compositing test. i'm still messing around with the colors, but as you may notice I'm taking a lot of influence from upa and hanna barbera layouts, and hopefully the wonderful mary blair .
more to come soon.

Sid The Killer Animatic

i have been taking a little break from the blogosphere to enjoy the summer sun, and try my hand at some freelance work, but recently the mayor of blake city and J&D attorney at law notified me that a post was long overdue, and they threatened legal action.

So,... I have been working on boards for a new short about my grandpa, and I would love to hear what you think! Comments, suggestions, opinions are all gratefully appreciated.
