Big City Boat

Okay so we're finally starting production on a 3-minute animated promo for 'Big City Birds'. The storyboard and animatic are done and I've begun designing some new locations and props, such as this one here. One of the transitions between scenes is going to be a 'boat wipe', so I had to design a boat. Since it's only going to be on screen for like 2 secs max, I really should have kept it more simple, but no... as usual I got a little carried away and spent way too much time on it. Anyway. no harm done. I'm sure it'll be reused again in a few BGs (and hey- maybe even some other shows!). Here she is!

Nice boat Ridd! I like the barnacles on the hull. Also, love the classic Golden book color choices. Yeah, I'd reused the heck out of this masterpiece!

Ridd, your stuff is great! Excellent stuff accompanied your interview on the character design site. Is Big City Cartoons something just for you or is it a part of Atomic?

ridd1 said...

Hey Gary. I checked out your blog and you have some great stuff up there. Sounds like you have a pretty rad job too!
Big City Cartoons is a studio my business partner Jeff Agala and I recently started up. It's independant from Atomic, but we're currently co-producing our show Big City Birds with them.
