rough animation

when the backgrounds were painted, the characters could take a firm hold of their environment and i could complete the animation. i did quite a bit of skipping around my apartment to get ganesha's walk just right. but you know what they say "you don't have to be a tree in order to draw one," so a lot of the morphing scenes were just fun straight-ahead animations. most of the timing and placement was already there in the animatic, it was just a matter of finishing up the in-betweens. the animation is pretty clunky in some areas (sometimes only on 4s), but i'd like to think of it as "bill plympton finesse" ;D

here's the final animation in rough form -

and here are some still sequences from that footage -
