Waiting...

Nothing happening around here. It's time to make a physical and mental break and rethink how to get more requests that would finally lead to more serious, paid jobs.
Still thinking about building a simple website for my 2d animation and illustration work (this may attract clients more than a blog, where everything is mixed up, work in progress and without a focus) and putting a portfolio on behance (maybe my continuous 3d construction site as well). Some of my animation school pals have work uploaded there, but I am not sure if anybody pays attention to that fact (with the exception of Juicefoozle, he is an extraordinary talent). The amount of world class artists and superb quality is intimidating. But first I will enjoy some days on the Elbe cycle path - yay - holidays!

More gorillas

And here another character design now turned into an illustration. I like this style even better than the last one (this time coloring in Photoshop again). This was one of the rejected designs and poses. For the app I provided some character designs, one layout, animations and cleaned up animation in black and white. I am curious about the final look of the gorilla in the app. As it is for children and due to working memory in mobile devices it is very limited animation and has flat colors.

Hier ein weiteres Character Design, das ich jetzt als Illustration ausgearbeitet habe. Dieser Stil gefällt mir sogar noch besser, als der letzte (diesmal wieder Photoshop).
Es handelt sich hierbei um einen der abgelehnten Entwürfe und Posen.
Ich habe für die Conni App mehrere Character Designs, ein Layout und die gecleanten Animationen in schwarz-weiß gemacht. Ich bin schon sehr neugierig, wie die finale Version aussieht. Aufgrund der Zielgruppe Kinder und der Rechenleistung von Tablets ist die Animation wieder limitiert und die Farben flach angelegt.
