Clean Animatic—Scene 6

It's been awhile but I HAVE been working on the film! In fact, as of this evening, I have completed 22% of the clean animatic (with some exceptions regarding the sound effects and temp music.) I always enjoy updating my progress chart. :)

Here's a scene I spent a lot of time getting right. I wanted it to be playful and fun. I'm OK if the full playfulness doesn't come through in the animatic; I'll have it there in the final animation. For now I just wanted to convey the intensity of the moment. Should it be done differently?

Labrador, Portie, Poodle & Mutt, Attorneys at Law—Earth Day Cartoon

Here are the thumbnail and final for the LPPM, P.C. Earth Day cartoon. This one was very quick and easy. First, I knew exactly what I wanted—the popular image for earth day are hands holding an earth. So it wasn't hard to make the leap from that to a paw and a hand. Also, I like the image of other species participating in Earth Day. It's their planet, too!

Second, I knew I could get a stock illustration and then draw a quick paw.

Voila!
