Concept #1

this is a first concept piece for a short film i may be working on. i like the simplicity of the design, and i think it will work well animated. the background and style will be similar throughout the short. Any thoughts??????

HEy Mike,

Yeah great designs! You have captured his attitude perfectly. The linework would for sure will take time to animate, but the simplicity of the backgrounds will make it easier in that regard. Are you sold on having no pupils?

thanks for the comments all!

KT: yeah..it'll be in flash. but of course.. NOT look like flash.

mauricio: thanks. i hope to have some more stuff posted soon. but im waiting on the green lights from producers. (what else is new)

gerry: blah blah... hehe. but not a bad idea!

stephanie: thanks for stoppin by..and the link. once i get enough time.. i'll add you too if you dont mind.

cliff: thank you. the no pupils thing im not sure about yet. i wanted something a little different. and when i tried adding pupils to the character, i felt it totally changed the mood and personality of the cat. so im not sure yet..
but im open to any and all suggestions, so please feel free.
