I've been eager to upload this Secret Santa rec.before the weekend. So here ya go!
I love pencil.just.dance's illustrated characters, but especially the silhouette style REmix "ROOTED"! So it was not hard for me to think of a (hopefully!) nice gift based on this wonderful REcord, which I used as a reference in creating this little 'flourish' animation with a little tune :-)...on the same paper texture :P)
Music wise I probably watched too much "Home Alone" in my earlier years, so this is what came out: sleigbells 'n clocks 'n a hint of jinglebells (publicdomain!) 'cause I dig animating on sneaky little bells and violins now and then.
NOLLAIG SHONA pencil.just.dance and have a SUPER AMAZING & HEALTHY NEW YEAR! <3
DWNLD for HD 1920x1080!
Not like the original need any adjustments. I just wanted to see what it would look like in a minamlisitc style...
This is the key art we've created for marketing the show.
The full layered PSD zip file (very large) is resourced below.
I'd love to see animators and motion-graphics artist take this thing apart and bring it to life.
Here we go again! Hopefully for the final time.
I took DTA's notes and amended the fight sequence. I've also completed animating all the other elements together (Power Bar, Countdown, FX's and Political Issues.) So this is pretty much as much as I can do with my limited AE skills. Hope it's OK!
It needs sound design. I'm hoping someone can jump in here and do that. I added Wunderboy's music and a little crowd cheering, but it needs the other sound elements still.
Regarding frame rate, this was exported at 24 fps. I'm assuming this can be amended as needed. If not, let me know and I can export at a different frame rate.
Thanks to everyone for all the kind words and hearts, it means the world to me. And a big thankyou to Axon for all the awesome character design elements.
I hope y'all enjoy watching as much as I have enjoyed animating this.

Words by kouralilly:
if you want to know
the definition of courage,
ask the flower,
growing from the crack
in the sidewalk.
it cut through the break
of the steel cold cement.
it’s brilliant bold green
amongst the stark
it unfurled it’s leaves.
and lifted it’s head.
and then dared
MERRY CHRISTMAS MJ! (Yes I'm your secret Santa)
I have to tell you that what you do with post-it notes is amazing. I just made this up as I went along and it took me all day. I know it pales in comparison to your mighty works, but it was a modest homage!
I wanted to answer your popularly answered question "What do you want?" and I think Christmas is a good time to answer that question!
I hope you enjoy this minute of tomfoolery. And I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year!
Thought I'd add this to the patterns collab but also thought the characters might come in useful seperatly for other REmixing :D
12/03/12 my hitRECord birthday.
Thank you, all of you <3
*UPDATE* I should talk about the form since some people want to remix this:
Key of G 4/4 with quarter note = 144 BPM
The guitar is in open G tuning so the chords are not well defined---I like how the open strings add tones to basic chords, so these chords are approximate:
Intro: comes in on offbeat Dadd4// Cadd9//
Verse: C to G riff ////-////-///-//// D riff //// Cadd9 riff //// Dadd4 // Cadd9 // Em// D7 //
Cadd9 to G riff////-////-////-//// D riff //// Cadd9 riff//// G/// Cadd9/ G////
1st chorus: G//// D//// C//// G////-//// D//// Cadd9// D// G////-//// D//// C//// G////-//// D//// Cadd9// D// G/// C/
2nd chorus: G//// D//// C//// G////-//// D//// Cadd9// D// G////-//// D//// C//// G////-//// D//// Cadd9// D// G////
Bridge: Bb//// G//// Bb//// G//// Bb//// C// Csus4/ C/ G//// Bb//// G//// Bb//// G//// Bb//// C// Csus4/ C/ G/// C/
Last chorus: G//// D//// C//// G////-//// D//// Cadd9// D// G////-//// D//// C//// G////-//// D//// Cadd9// D// G////
Cadd9// D// G//// Bb//// C// Csus4/ C/ G/// C/
Outro: C to G riff /// C/ G/
Song form: Intro/Verse/1st Chorus/Verse/2nd Chorus/Bridge/Verse/Last Chorus/Outro
Pretty simple, mostly diatonic tune. Only 4 chords really. Enjoy!
