Client: Personal Project: Design, Animation
I started a personal project designing and animating the life cycle of coffee. The idea is to focus on stylized simplicity and common animation techniques to create an elegant piece from scratch. Still a work in progress since I sporadically work on it on weekends and evenings.
I started with a simple sketch in my notebook using line art as an inspiration. I quickly did an animation test to see how my ideas could translate to motion.
Next I created a slew of style frames that further push that elegant line are style but tell more of a story. I've been updating and animating each scene using these original designs as a guide.
Once I had animated out the first scene I started testing some alternate color schemes to see what evoked the right feel. Ultimately the original simple black white and grey was the palette I went with. It fit the elegant image style the best and drove home the look and feel.
The first half of the animation has come along nicely. I’m currently working on the rest. More soon but here's what I've got so far...
