'nother scene coloured

Hey,

Still doing bits and pieces here and there. Some scenes need more inbetweens and eventually colour. The colouring does not dissapoint me in terms of time. Per scene, a day or two. Animating and planning takes more time.
The following scene only had a "backbone", no facial expressions and there would be a silhouet sliding along in the forground.
In this scene the boy is in the house, ready to free his pluche friend from the pit he was thrown in. There is something/somebody in the house and the boy does not want to get caught. Glued to the wall he waits to start his rescue-mission, as a shadow slides over him.

New scene

The following scene has undergone a continuity-make over.

The old situation was this:

Following his pluche friend up in the air.

I was having doubts about the continuity: fast up in the air to slow down immediately. The clip below shows/feels better: fast up, a little more and then slow down.

And I just love these kind of perspectives :)
Thanks for watching!

See ya

Train keeps a rollin

It has been a month already? Don't worry I've been busy. I have uploaded a rough version of the entire animation. Some bits missing, some bits flashing here and there.



Please tell me it's flowing or blowing.
I also have started posting on the conceptart forums, where I got good critisism. I posted this coloured part



Following this part, the characters pluche friend is rocketing into the air in a nice (my opinion) panning shot. Someone mentioned the part being not visually engaging enough which has me reviewing all of the scene's. Just to check i I am able to spot visual un-enaging shots. I must admit that I'm not yet fully trained in this and can't say I can spot them easily. Probably because I'm biased.
That's why it's so good to ask others than yourself. I've been working on this for months and was in need of some fresh eyes on the animated short.
I am in doubt wether or not to shake the whole thing up and make the suggested correction.
Someone suggested to have a point-of-view of the pluche animal, whilst being swayed around. I like that, but that's breaking the whole thing up. Should I do it now or first graduate and then do it? Should I do it at all.. Doubt, doubt, doubt...
Until next time!
