THUS ends (for now) one of the most trying projects I've ever completed. Someone slap me the next time I agree to take on huge projects in the middle of finals, during a heavy semester.

For the most part I'm really happy with it though. 22 illustrations for a friend of a friend who's trying to get a children's book published. Also, I just want to show you how ridiculous my sketch - finished process is. I don't mind sketching, but usually I just feel repetitive doing it for big things.Sometimes this works out, sometimes it make things a lot more difficult.
And yes, it actually was faster for me to do paintings than to do it start to finish digitally. Which is a little disturbing.

My last two animations for 2d character. The first is for a complex cycle assignment, the second for lip sync. Working in flash was fun, even though the lines got a lot messier. Having something finished looking in animation s always extremely satisfying.
