Cartoon Uchujin – The Bird – 2D animation

So, here’s an animation I’ve been working on as part of development for a (possible) longer idea. (Best seen full screen with the sound:)

Animation is made doubly difficult for me, because despite having an artist for a father, I CANNOT draw.
So, this took a while, and used a fair few photo and video references to get there, it’s also the first real character animation I’ve tried to do in this 2D style.
It is A LOT of work.

New found respect for all people doing this for the movies etc.

After Effects in case you were wondering, with some audio tweaking in Audition.
