old animation test

an old animation test - this creature here also bears no resemblance to them now. there's a few of these knocking about, really should finalise some designs before getting excited and animating them in future

some rough monster designs....

a lot of monsters were drawn and none of them really bear any resemblance to how they are now

Rumpus is a 5 minute musical film about 2 tribes of monsters who don't get on very well. this is what they used to look like but they've changed a little bit now. I'm going to be working on it for bloody ages and thought a blog might provide some gentle encouragement. designs, boards and animation tests will pop up here every now and then.

Louis Jones did the hard work on this background. i drew him a rubbish rough picture and he made it look lovely. sometimes i pretend i did it all.
