This project is part of a new series of little animated doodles based off a series of drawings I did in 2013. Each animation will be about 10-20 seconds, and simply breath some life into some characters and vignettes as stylistic exercises and explorations. I am hoping to do about 1 or 2 a month of these over the next year. I am building a brand new workstation, and it may come true if renders remain at the short times they are now at about 5 minutes a frame.
I have been experimenting a lot with NPR (nonphotorealistic) shaders and medium emulation. Painterly animations are in the works.
