Layout & Timing: Draft 1

This semester I'm taking a course in "Layout and Timing" for animation. I'll be focusing on the first half of an animated short I'll be finishing in the future. It features the characters I've been posting lately.

I've got the first draft of the storyboard done, in a very rough form. I'm trying to make a strong, pantomime-focused film this time, visuals only/no dialog. I'll be adding sound effects later to make some parts clearer, but for the most part I'll be relying on screen direction and acting to tell the story

here are some more character sketches, as well as the first pass at timing this animatic out. Enjoy!

Sketches: Buccaneers

Here are just a few early concept sketches for characters in an upcoming animatic/short film idea from me.

More on these guys (and a first board draft) coming soon!
