Below is the final bus design that’s being used for the animation. I decided to keep the lines basic and where i’ve used colour i decided to keep it as solid blocks of colour rather than using any form of shading just to keep the design nice and simple.
Here are the designs created for the bus that appears towards the end of the animation. The first design was inspired by London buses and the second design was inspired by the buses i’d seen around Middlesbrough.
This is the final character face design, using inspiration from Carl from up but changing him to make him different. For example carl has a very square head were as our character has a more rounded shape.
This is a moodboard of reference images I gathered to help in creating our character. I looked a lot at carl from Up because I liked the way he was designed, and plan to use a lot of inspiration from him.
This blog post will be about the planning that we did to get the idea which will help us create the animation.
For the animatic we wanted to all create frames so it shows all our input. So Myself (Abby) chose to create the first 13 seconds of the animatic where it sets the scene. Steph created the next 14 seconds after that which is where the character waits for the bus and weather takes a turn for the worst. Grace created that last part of the animatic where the character gets electrocuted and the character then misses his bus. Below is a link to download and watch the Animatic
As previously said in the environment blog post we got some feedback that that character should be placed on the other side of the road, so I (Abby) changed environment design.
