That said it doesn't stop me posting some of the preproduction for it does it?
And then it changed, it was set deep in a forest and one of the characters became human
I called him Nic and gave him a pet called Rocco, you can see some of the design work below.
It began to dawn on me here that what I was creating (by myself also) was not only a big task to get Nic's story correct but to also finish to a good standard, despite this I boarded 2 ideas, heres part of the first..
I spoke to a lot of people and we agreed that it was a massive undertaking so I decided to go back to the drawing board and go with KISS. (Keep it simple Stupid) This said I wanted to keep the theme but play on emotions, keeping it simple I wanted to give it depth, and as such I moved toward textured styles. Below is a Gouache, Ink and house paint piece of concept art. Whats more lonely than space?
I loved the texture Conte crayon and china markers gave the shadow and thus I tried to emulate that when animating.
