Character Development: VIZ

 

Step#1

     
 

Working from a script, we break everything down into storyboards. This isn't rocket science -- it seems to be the way most animation people make episodes, and it's certainly one of the ways commercials are made.

   
   
  Step#2      
 

From there, Gabe makes a rough sketch. He tries to capture the energy of the shot, and tries to make the direction of the action clear from just the sketch.

 

 

   
   
  Step#3      
 

Gabe passes his sketch on to Noel, who breaks it down into simplified vector art. He tosses it back to Gabe for approval, comments and suggestions for clean up. Then the figure is brought into Flash and animated, which you can see by clicking on the image to the right.
