Baby Elephant Sequence



For some reason it didn't sync  exactly the same after it was rendered as it did in the program, which irks me, but hopefully that will be cleared up for the final.


 


If you like my cartoon so far and think it's worth supporting please take a moment to make a donation.  I'm doing this 100% indie.

The mom and dad's heads should swing back and forth to the music, this is coming out nice

Thank you. If I had a crew of people working on this that would be awesome... but it's just me, so I have to pick and choose, lest I end up working on this for 5 years.

That needs to loop, I've watched it so many times!

Here, I wanted to share this with you. This guy I've been following lately and I can't get enough of his stuff:

Thanks! I'm very pleased you like it. I have been getting a good response about this scene from people.

Haha, I found this footage today of a real baby elephant in his bath:

Best of luck to your friend in his campaign. I am thinking of dooing a Kickstarter myself to help fund this project.

See how spastic they are? I love that! I really tried to capture it.

I love the style, but there's almost no weight. Depicting weight, with the inherent anticipation and follow-through that is required to sell it, is obviously one of the backbones of animation, and with something like an elephant its even more crucial.

I want to feel the elephant tossing itself around.

Do you have any advice for adding weight to the animation?
