Ok a lot of things have been happening but now this projects back in full swing and it will be my focus this month. The film will be made in parts and will be a narrated tale. I was calling this project "Jurassic foo" the last time but now it is called "Simon"

Here's the main character design of Simon for the first story

The colouring style will be scene specific but I'm going to move away from individual colours and just using minimal colours with attention to lights and darks.

I'm still playing around with the character drawing style, but my goal is to find a cross between Moebius, Tezuka and old mad magazine comics. The sketches at the moment are too restrained so I'm going to have to loosen up my drawing style

Ok this isn't all that much to look at for the moment but hopefully by the end of the week I'll have the whole first short deigned and an animatic completed.

Hey looking good Tim, are you going to animate in Flash or Toonboom? I'm guessing it will be more of a handrawn, traditional style?

Yeah I'm going to try and have it mostly hand drawn but I'm going to force myself to use toon boom to put it all together
