...and your animation peers told you that 2D was dead! Balderdash! Hogwash! Haberdashery!

Here are some of my animation roughs that are kinda tied down for my upcoming picture. I tried to Photoshop out the blood and sweat stains. All other stains are purely on purpose.

BLUR! Thanks Chuck Jones!

Check back every hour on the hour for updates. I hope to finish this film within the week, and color the animation/BG's, composite it, etc. etc. If I'm feeling chipper afterwards, I hope to do a whole series of explanatory videos explaining how I'm doing what it took a studio of 150 people to do in the 1930's. Then when anybody tells you that animating on paper is too much work, you'll know better and you can bite your thumb in their general direction, the lazy bastards.

Hell Yeah! people love traditional 2d animation. Yet almost nobody makes it. Thanks you for stepping up to the challenge. I am tightening up my fundamentals so I can be jump in the fray myself. Look forward to see how your doing it.

Thanks Looney Moon! I plan on showing each step of my process (roughs, clean ups, layouts, painted bg's, animation colored before it gets composited, etc.). I hope you enjoy it and I'm glad there's people that share my interests!

What?!? 2D is back?!!? What a load of jibber-jabber, mish-mash, poddle-wonky!!! All hail the benevolent 3D God Pixar and it's loyal Cerberus, Disney.

It's good to see that at least one of us is doing, uhh, things (even though it angers the 3D Gods).

Hey, beard growing is a thing, ain't it?
