The Ruined Kingdom Blocked & Complete Scene One

Starting Animating

After the test cycles and storyboards were done, I then started to block out my animation.  Whiles doing this I filmed reference footage of my friend to help me animate Lolas movement.

I also used Jungle Book’s Bagheera as reference for some of Saber’s movement and also my own knowledge from studying my friends cat.  Also I used Eadweard Muybridge cat, as reference.

Story Boards

During this process I had to change my initial idea of animating a long chase scene, to a short version.  This took me a while to come up with an idea that would show off as much of my abilities.  Also, keeping to my original concept but just in a smaller time period.  So I thought up a brief introduction to the pilot episode, which hopefully will be easy to understand and give you a feel for what the animation is about.
