Usually you would create style frames at the very start but we needed to wait for a 3D model of the rabbit before beginning this part of the process. Also, we had the beautiful concept art to show the client so they could visualise how the rabbit would look. For the style frames, the client wanted an artistic look to the rabbit, so it felt like it had been painted or drawn by hand. This stage also gave us an opportunity to test out key scenes and ensure the character was clear, even when seen at such a small scale.
It took a lot of work to create just over 20 seconds worth of animation but the client was delighted with the final results and so were we. We hope you’ve enjoyed seeing our process for this project and we plan to post more blogs like this in the future that show you how some of our projects are created. You can see the final video here
