Another small preview of a roughed-in layout and cleaned animation for Showdown. It took me a WEEK to clean this shot, and the inconsistency towards the end really bugged me. In addition, there's the problem that in order to complete the film on time in this style, I would need to restrict the frame rate.

I wanted to try out how it would look if the lines were not rough and moving, but I found that my original vision of having the "living lines" worked out better and was also easier to work with.

So here's an alternative approach, but one that I scrapped for a different style!

Showdown is an animated short I am producing at SCAD.

So how long did this take you in total? He looks like he has a lot to express. Good luck with the final Showdown!! XD

I also estimate 20 frames but I'm not sure ._. I had to count very fast.

Thank you so much! Since posting this, I've redone this scene in the new style, and it came out well I think :)

Thank you! It should look more interesting in color hahah, I'm glad it's still kind of foreboding.

Thanks, it'll get done or bust, can't graduate if I don't finish it next quarter! |D I just hope my professor likes what I have so far.
