"Stop-Motion" CG Paper-Cutout Animation

Post by frank »

Hey guys!

Still occasionally dinking around with these little characters and weird animation styles. :)

This one was made by repeatedly sketching the character over and over, then scanning all those drawings into Photoshop to align them, and exporting as a sequence for importing into trueSpace as a texture. The eyes and mouth were done in the same way - just animated textures applied to basic 2D/plane shapes.



Hope you enjoy!

That is REALLY well done! I love it! The camera work is great, awesome composition. Rotoscoped by hand! Crikey that must have taken forever! And it's quite funny in a way. You have to do more stuff like this!
