surprise surprise

i thought I'd better post something quickly so that i can make my one a week post.. HEER

This is my first every bits of animation done about 3 or so years ago, and is also the first and last time i made stop motion animation.

I made it with no story in mind, just wanted to play about and see what i could create. I had and lot of fun making the set and building the toys, which bar the big one, are from kinder eggs. what can i say, i love chocolate!

New internet connection + new sketch book = new post

I'm halfway through the animation on my little short, but it's been put on hold for a couple of weeks because I'm helping out on a music video for Partizan's animation department. it's going well, and I'm learning loads and meeting really great people.

I'm gonna try and work all weekend on the short. I've still not got any ideas for a name for it yet, any ideas?

answer from the last post.

Chicken Boo from the animaniacs (if you don't know this character youtube him, i think he's one of the best characters of all time! but he's kinda slipped under the radar)
Bart Simpson
Robbie from Dinosaurs
The face of the Iron Giant

i did think that there was one more...but i've forgotten which character it was.

if you look at all these characters you'll understand. hahahaha

Subconscious Chick

I've started drawing this Character which I've named Chick Chickson, and i realised that he's the mesh of about five characters i like. i had no intention of ripping them off, it was completely a subconscious move. I almost didn't post it because i thought people might of thought i was copying them. but i think it's pretty interesting how our minds work, so i decided to share.

see if you can guess what characters they are?
