Here are a couple of sketches I've done lately. They are really quick and simple. I really want to get better at watercolor technique and try to capture the simple beauties in life.
This short called Jelly Sunday is really great. The animation is simple, really squashy and stretchy and is cycled a lot. I noticed that Gobelins (the french animation school) puts out a lot of nice work, but their animation seems weird. There are no pauses, no time to rest. Everything is high pace and there is no time to let the viewer soak up the scenery or the plot. A lot of their stories involve some kind of high speed chase. Good for dynamic action, but lacking in acting and story.
