An animated holiday card I created this year. This is different than the sketch below. I saw Frosty the Snowman the other day, and thought how scary is it to have a magic hat that indiscriminately brings things to life? It would make a better horror movie than christmas special!
Jane is the champion! For November anyway. I actually didn't even know they were running a contest, but Jane'll take it! She likes to win. Anyway, I'm honored considering all the great work that was submitted. Thanks Fred!
Frederator is asking for 2- 5 second animations with a winter theme. Since I was planning on making a christmas card with a snowman theme, I think i'll make an animation that I can use for both. Not much can happen in a few seconds, so this is my first idea. A kid finds an unusual snowman...and then finds out who did it. Then I think something really bad happens...still thinking though. I might change my mind :)
So I finally cracked and purchased a Wacom Cintique tablet/monitor. Wow very cool. I get so sick of scanning crappy drawings, now I draw them direclty onto the monitor. I played around on it and came up with Billy Cosmic, Guardian of the Universe.
