This was my final project for Intermediate Animation last semester. I apologise for the size, but I hope it can still be seen.
The animation was made with a combination of 2D and 3D techniques. Essentially, I used traditionally-drawn textures on a "flattened" 3D landscape. The bird is a 3D jointed character with a hand-drawn texture, and the cat is a sequence of still images, drawn in Photoshop with a traditional feel. The buildings originally had animated textures, but the technique was too complicated to work well with the rest of the animation, and would have distracted the focus from the characters. Perhaps I will post some of the studies for that part as well; they were a big hit in class...!
