Faux Pounce

The story of a young barn mouse who is being pestered by a hungry young fox kit who is unusually clumsy. After many aggravating encounters, the mouse learns there is an unfortunate reason behind the kit's clumsiness.

 

Another story pitch involving a "Hero vs. Villain" story, only this one involves a happier ending where the so-called "villain" is reformed by the "hero" character.

A Very Sketchy Process

I've decided to use this project as an example of how I go from the rough sketching phase for all the frames to the final colored images that you see in the final product.

This contains the original version of the fox's silhouette that I was meaning to use, before I was given the recommendation to change the eyes.

Below is a picture that I speed-painted before adding lots of blur. I of course did the transition between the blurry scene and the clear one using the Linear Wipe transition in After Effects.

Quick sketch I did of a quick scene that was meant to show the fox and the mouse running away. But due to time constraints, this never ended up being used, or at the very least cleaned up.
