Here are the roughs for about half of the concert cutaways. The purpose with these is so I can get the timing worked out with a sketch that has the proportions of the character. Now I can go in and draw the character over this rough animation.
This one I'm planning on having MGK's red laces come in and tie around Rip. It's more just a reference to him and the lyrics, but if it seems like a dig on him let me know and I can change it. I'm a fan of the dude and I don't want to come across as rude in some way.
If there is something you're not feeling and want to me change, just let me know as soon as possible, it will save time down the road. The last one of these with just Rip will be the hook, then I'll go through and do Carl's. As I start to finish Carl's I'll start assembling these and put together an animatic with all the current assets to show the progress.
Here's the progression of the animatic, this doesn't reflect the look of the final product. It's really just to give me an idea of how much work needs to be done, and what assets are needed.
Some sketches and thumbs to work out the character's proportions.
Made some changes to Carl's design, I'm liking the short mohawk, but let me know if you'd rather him wear the brimmed hat.
Some of the backgrounds and space elements
And of course, the background for the title screen.
Here are the heads for the character design (Body shots to come soon).
This is the first pencil test.
And the cleanup/color
It's stiffer than I would like, so I'm going to work on loosening up the lines a bit. I'll start timing the frames I animate, so I can get a better idea of how long the animation portion is going to take. The next week or so, I will work out the animatic, so I can break down exactly what needs to be done, and how to get it done by late September.
