2-D production final stills by Saetje 2-D production final stills by Saetje

So here are the backgrounds, screenshots, and 3 detail things of my 2-D production final for school. If you saw [link] then you know who the little character is.

I tried really heard to think about the style. I was mainly inspired by Hanna-Barbera and Rob Renzetti. Renzetti especially, with Teenage Robot and Mina and the count [link] . In both these shows the backgrounds are somewhat flat and simple, and yet the colors are a STRONG presence in the show, going so far as to completely change the color scheme of the characters to have them match their surroundings and the mood of the scene. Also, flat, nicely-silhouetted characters matter.

Though, i was definitely going to have Turner have a thick outline like in these cartoons, but my good friend *DemonGemini6 suggested I go line less, and I really think she gave me some great advice.

Anyway. The point of the project was to sell a mood and admittedly I think I did okay with that...I'll upload the actual ANIMATION once I spruce it up a bit...

Thank you!

This is stunning! I really like how you combine graphic design and animation! Everything feels so natural. Heck, everything in your gallery feels like every detail has a purpose to the piece. Haha

Прошу прощения за то,что пишу свой комментарий на моем родном и непонятном для вас языке.

Мне очень близко настроение этой работы,такие сцены очень часто снятся мне-темные загадочные комнаты,в которых чувствуешь себя потерянным...И тут ваша работа-она будто бы взята из моих снов детства.Я не знаю точной предыстории этого эпизода,но чувствую,это что-то загадочное.
А исполнение!Четко сгармонированные цвета,продуманный интерьер(эти портреты на стенах чего стоят),"живые" движения персонажа...На высшем уровне,спасибо вам за ваше творчество и ваши старания,онозначно 10 из 10 и "Add to favorites"...

SheeEEEESH your stuff is just so bloody brilliant. I LOVE how much work and thought you put into your stuff. Its definitely that amount of care into the process that will set you a bar above the other animators. Your stuff is professional by all accounts, and I really can't wait to see how you do after SCAD! Your choice of colors here creates a perfect atmosphere and sets the mood. I LOVE that you chose those inspirations! I love that style of background and I only WISH I could capture it as well as you can! I suck at choosing colors, I don't know how you do it! Such great angles and shot choices in these stills too.

hey Fyuvix, I really appreciate you dropping by and leaving such nice comments! This one particularly I kept around for a couple of days to just reread XD (as I do with some of your other comments, as well!).

As for my colors, thank you! I've been told I have a certain talent for them and I'm always very flattered to hear it. However, there's also a lot of resources out there to help you with your color choices, as well. My favorite so far has been, whichis actually where the color scheme used in this film came from :D!

Thanks so much, and no prob XD I usually let emails sit for weeks if they're too long! I go to colourlovers too! I've made a few new colors and palettes there, but I still suck at choosing my own XD I could always rip theres though, it's true!
