Sting Animation - A new task

My new task is to animate this dog on the stairs. Its a short scene of him sleeping (About 1 or 2 seconds long). Its not the main scene but its related to the story.

I have started learning Flash since Ive joined into this new group... Flash looks complicated, but once I got the hang of it I think I can handle with it.

Im happier that I have a propper tasks to do now, I feel comfortable working on my own pace but also the feeling where I need to push myself.

Hopefully we will get the good outcome in the end!

Sting Animation - Layouts 2

Another experiment on Layouts.

Sting Animation - Layouts

Since I was too ill to go to LA trip I am left here in UK, working towards to our sting animation.

Today I have done a bit of experiment on the layout.
Since the story is based on the space I have done a quick gradient pictures to represent the sky.

Quick long picture of sky. I think because the character is simple hand drawn style the realistic clouds may not be neccesary...

Maybe the stars and clouds can be replaced to hand drawin style as well.

Sting Animation - Group Work

After looking through everyone's brilliant sting Animation (I was away on this day...)
I have put into a group with my friend, we have got told to work on my friend's animation.

The theme is the British animation of 1970s. Our work is going to be very simple but with emotional scenes and unique characters.

My job is to draw the character design, we are keeping the main part of the initial ideas and then develop slightly to make them better to animate.

Also I am going to draw a few more extra items, such as Balloon, rocket etc... plus the background image that I will be designing.

The image on the left is the practise drawing of the main characters. Left character is an astronaut who is also a father of the right character, a Boy.
His Father went to the space and the boy hasn't seen him for while.

The main plot of this story is the 'Family's Love' and 'Reunited'. We will be focusing on how to represent these emotions with using simple characters and designs.
