The short animation I made on my second semester of the first year of animation course
concept art- character desing:
This is the first interesting idea I got for the characters, which still needed work to make characters more appealing and easier to animate, but gave me some starting point for visual development:
the last sketch on this page was the one I used in the final animation:
some sketches to get to know the character before animating him:
These are some sketches of the other cowboy, his design almost didn't change since I got the main idea, I just made him shorter and less lanky, and more crazy and dynamic:
Rough sketch of the town; I altered the houses slightly in the actual animation, but these helped me to get the picture of the town in general:
I must admit I'm not very pleased with the final product, but there are still parts of it I really like, like the animation of shorter cowboy in the last scene, or the tumbleweed with the University's logo in it.
