Day 19 of 365.
Bit more focused on work today and thus didn’t get around to working on animation till really late. Spent my free time getting excited over mographs & #mochat on Twitter. Need to start prioritizing this in the evenings.
Today’s animation progress is small. I redrew the characters again, this time aiming for a very simplistic drawing. I’m playing with the most basic of shapes and testing out which shapes would be easy to draw. You can see them below.
I decided I liked a boxer for the dog. I’m trying to figure out how I want to draw his legs, ’cause Snackadoodle is really simplistic in comparison. I’ll figure it out.
In addition to this, I got really excited and intrigued by these animations by Cindy Suen! I really want to make this animation in this minimalistic style. Need to crack down on my free time instead of watching videos if I want to achieve this style. I really love how fluid everything is. I also like that there’s a bit of process seen in the two animations. I like the style of the lines moving and then seeing how it looks colored in.

Goals for tomorrow are get myself back on track by doing these earlier. I’m starting to push this too late in the evening, which results in the fatigue of the day weighing on me. I tend to get easily distracted as a result & don’t follow through, so the earlier the better. I’m going to prioritize getting the rough started as well as simplifying the story a bit more. More to come soon!
