Captain Floursack, etc.

Here's the first animation I actually did this fall:

Just a fun cycle, really. Taught me that effects animation is no slice o' pie.

I usually wake up in the morning with the radio, which allows me to get some information about the world. Unfortunately im often still half asleep when i take in the broadcast information, so sometimes it gets mixed in with my dreams and im not quite sure whats real and whats not.

Anyway, im pretty sure some lady on the radio mentionned that Disney's Enchanted was no.1 at the box office (and Beowulf was 3rd, heh). Seems like good news, since it should help rekindle people and producers interest for traditional animation in feature films, even though the movie is mostly live action.

Sure enough I just read the wikipedia entry on the film, and it seems like it's actually gotten some pretty positive reviews. Maybe ill actually go see it in theatres, even though ive dreaded most non-animated Disney films since the dawn of my existence. I did actually see Mary Poppins for the first time last friday, and it wasnt so bad. That Julie Andrews was pretty easy on the eyes, haha.

Shelly the Nymph

BEHOLD! A character design I should've posted weeks ago...

Basically, Shelly is a Nymph who lives in a park in the middle of a modern day metropolis. She has a lot of difficulty adapting to modern times, and spends her days skipping in the park woods or bathing in it's lake. City dwellers assume she's some sort of rare breed of hot hobo girl.

I'll post the animation were I used her shortly.
