Smart Motion

My first proper venture into animation.

The animation is drawn frame by frame in Photoshop CS6 using a Wacom tablet after which the scenes were assembled using After Effects and sound was added using Final Cut. I only had 2 weeks to complete the animation so I chose to stick to black and white line work at 12fps. At the end of the day it was more of an experiment than anything, to understand movement and shapes in space.

I'm definitely no sound designer, and my sound resources were very limited. That being said, I did the best I could with what I could get my hands on, sound-wise, but there is obvious room for improvement there. Who knows, maybe I'll revisit this sometime in the future.

You can see how the character would look in colour, as well as some other process and progress shots on my blog:

Hope you guys like it!
