Animation is now complete!

Yes, for the moment my characters look like this. I was questioned whether this was my new art style, but nope! The animation will look much prettier in the final product!

So it's been around three weeks of animating, starting over the Easter break and finishing today. What a relief! The next stages are colouring and background painting, redubbing a couple of scenes and adding sound and music to the completed film. There's still a lot of work to be done and part of me wonders whether it will turn out well. I have to remain positive throughout and make sure the film is as good as possible, or it will swallow me whole, as it's threatened to do these past few months. If there's one thing I don't want to do this year, it's to fail my course and be pretty much forced to do another film like this for another year (as if my inspiration hasn't waned this semester!). That thought will always be at the back of my mind throughout the course of production, and there's no stopping it, but ultimately it will drive me further forward into completing this film in good order and on time.

From the rough little scraps I've showed to a select few, people seem to like it, so here's hoping!


  1. I can't wait to see more of this! The style is very intriguing. A lot of fun can be had with something that loose! : )

  2. looks promising, Sarah! The bee on the right is especially effective coz its been drawn with such few lines----very difficult, like UPA studios in the 50s!

  3. Thanks everyone! The bee is actually a butterfly (hard to tell without any details), but the UPA comment is flattering. The simpler the better!
