Illustration friday is giving me some great opportunities to practice with my wacom tablet. This weeks topic was opposite. I kept thinking along the line of opposite styles. So, that's what I tried to acheive. On the subject of opposites, We are taking a very opposite approach to our short, Ants Have Lots of Protein, trailer here. We are no longer animating it in our 3D program. We are going to 2D animate it. It will be a little more time consuming, but we feel the look of it will be better.
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
