Some modeling, more cat designs and the expected animatic

Worked on a fatter version of my cat after I received my last critique, but at the same time I felt like my old model was too flat to really look good in 3D, so here is the latest revision


Also, I started to work on my model in Maya, here is the most recent version of it, Unsmoothed and Smoothed. The smoothed one has some weird coloring issues, but glad to see the cell-shading didn't wind up looking completely terrible.




and a new animatic, with some pauses added, increasing the length to about 3:30 minutes. Check it out :)

Cat Redesign and New Audio Track for Animatic

I just redesigned my cat so he wouldn't blend in with the items in the background so much, also so he could animate a bit better...



and here's the same animatic you all know and love, with a new Audio track. I got my friend...er...Wekhter to voice the narrator in the new audio track. I'm not sure if I'll keep it or not, gives the piece more of a storybook tone.

Completed Background art and Revised Animatic

My current idea is to do some rough modeling in Maya and then color over it in Flash to give the backgrounds more of a handmade, storybook feeling, below is the final piece from Flash.


and here is the Maya rough


and here's the new animatic, with new voices and some changes made to the ending
