I've been wanting to post a work in progress video of some of my shots from Frozen. This is the first one I wanted to post and it shows the process that I go through on a shot like this. I use 2d animated rough tests a lot in my workflow , specially for a broad cartoony shot like this one. I wanted also to show how the 2d sketch translates into the CG character , and the fact that I don't copy 100% the 2d into the CG , I just use it as a reference and starting point. Later, I hide it and concentrate on polishing and refining the CG animation.
I would like to credit the talented people responsible for making this shot look the way it does in the final movie:

Life is a battle of choices and roads to be taken. We choose our own paths, we mark our own map. Once choices have been made, actions play out. Consequences are delivered. And in the end, we live with those consequences.
But, the real struggle is making the choice to change how we take the roads untaken. Are we tough enough to decide for ourselves when the time comes?
