Getting in the Groove
I had wanted to have this brush pen style to give it a unique look. But alas the show was not picked up. The Backgrounds had a nice textured style to them. I will put those in a later post I have planned about background painting.
The second thing to share goes along with the post about animating groups as a single shape. It was requested that I share the animation with the dogs overlaid on top of the shape to further illustrate the method. Remember that these dogs appear in silhouette in the final scene. They also move across the scene and are much smaller in the frame. Often I find that if I animated a cycle larger then reduce it down for the final scene it will have a better feel. Today it's much easier to do this in the digital medium.
