Monster Dance Loop



I made this yesterday for the website loopdeloop. Looopdeloop is a monthly challenge by word (this months  word was 'monster') website to create an animation loop.

I made the silly tune and voice in Garageband for the iPad (I honestly just randomly pressed buttons). Then I drew the whole scene in photoshop with the exception of the squid girls hand and the dancing monster dude. The monster dude and the squid girl hand was animated in toonboom using a textured brush (looks quite nice). I added a few effects in toonboom like adding a tone to the monster and making his jelly body see through and glowing a little. I was able to add a little focal depth and parallax to the background  that I might be over using but dam it looks good.

Once all the toonboom stuff was done I pulled it into after effects and pushed those lazers a bit and added a blur and a dark circle mask to the edges.

annnnnd tada! A day spent animating something stupid
