With Jana's help (she's god sent), I was able to make the strawberry bootlaces packet less floaty and seamless on joe's hand. I have integrated her work as well as did some masking on the earlier scene. I also substituted the old packet with melonberri's work. The rest of animation remains the same.
Thank you all for helping me out to complete this version!
Test animation for strawberry bootlaces. Making joe black/white and limit the background colour to 5 color throughout the animation gives the overall film a consistent look. I will try and incorporate other artist's work in similar fashion later.
I swear RECollection is made for my living room. Or my living room is made for RECollection. Match made in heaven!
PS: RECollection has made it down under!
Lineart work that I have done for the amoeba poster. Thought i should separate it out as tranparent PNG for future remix work.
PS: I would like to contribute something about my copy of RECollection but it still not here in ozzie..:(
Not completely satisfied with the version 2 where joe's face was a little bit sad looking. So, added a pair of sunnies and made joe smile.
Joe Be Pimpin Recollection!
This is my visual design concept for the amoeba event. My idea was based on how to integrate amoeba logo and existing RECollection artwork seamlessly in a fun indie way. I wanted to include many more characters but the deadline is too short..Hope you all like it..
Joe: you have to give us longer duration for the next project's deadline! I was working like a mad lady on speed for this project. AMEN to record recycling!
This is the character design for the stalker. I feel doodling style works best to capture the comedic vibe.
The one on the left is the cute and sweet version of the secret admirer while right is the creepy version. I imagine that the character will take off his clothes and stick out his tongue in creepy manner during the "scary" animation.
I will create "Rebecca" character later and work these characters to match the screenplay.
I have done this drawing in solid white background vector format and even separate the limbs, eyes, body parts into different layers so that animation process is easier. Kindly ignore the wrinkly paper background as this is just to visualize how it will look when it's composite against a blank envelope.
Words on the street, mafia Joe and his hitmen have a hit on you... watch your back cause they are coming to shoot you.
Looper inspired :)
My visual concept , part-art, part-fashion: think hipster poster child meets the world of tiny stories.

My 2nd animation on hitrecord (in after effects). I know miss marielv uploaded a "way better" animation of this but hey thought I can do this to practise my newly acquired after effects skill. This version, I made the clouds flow continously like a river (after all joe is in a boat). This animation is about 1 min long and can be loop seamlessly over and over again. I didn't put any music because I thought someone can come out with a music loop or even a full composition.
PS: hmm maybe row your boat song collab might work for this, any thoughts? any other comments/critique?
