This is a video that I'm working on in after effects. I'm learning how to rig a character in illustrator to animate in after effects. I'm just experimenting and having fun with this. Just a reminder, I'm still learning so I'm not a pro at this yet.
I did a few variations of the sun. Joe Thiel (my illustration teacher) wants me to stick with the one with no face, but I like one with a face. I'm not sure which one I will choose for thesis. I have no time to decide, I have a lot of work ahead of me and I'm currently working on "The Star." I'll have that up soon.
I'm still playing with the idea of the mix culture of Latin America in the U.S. In the dark part of the moon I have a drawing of the Aztec Moon Goddess. I'm probably going to keep working on the flag to make it look more like an American flag.
The background was pretty cool so I thought I would post it since it gets lost in the final.
This is kind of a collaboration with my girlfriend, Kelly Versaggi who is a senior computer animator here at Ringling. She needed a movie poster for thesis, so I let her have fun with the Boo Boo Monster. This image will be pinned on a bedroom door of her thesis animation.
