Fruut the Ugly Griffin Part 15

Found some great reference for the water splash when Fruut falls into the creek, water drops, when hes shaking off the water and for the creek itself. These will come in pretty useful since I have never tried effects animation before.


Fruut the Ugly Griffin Part 14

Here is a layout of a scene I’m working on just now. I decided to animate the three bullies as the same time on this shot as they’r all interacting with Fruut at the same time. Its a challenging one!


The Griffins have turned out bigger than I was expecting, they’r huge against poor Fruut! I guess it makes sense since eagles are much larger than pigeons and it makes the bullies more intimidating. The only problem is I’ve already animated Fumaa’s keyes and in the scenes shes interacting with Fruut shes not much bigger or the same size, only in the end shot when they’re flying I’ve made her wings a lot bigger. I can sense problems coming up when compositing and i’m not looking forward to them.

Anyway not to get down, here is a nice happy layout of Fruut and Fumaa together. 🙂
