Kickstart Into Animating

Artist's Thoughts
Before the end of 2010, I began the storyboard work for the animated musical that has a classical look and theme. It takes place around the late 1930's to early 1940's. The scene I created below shows a dog that had to get in on the act. Animating the dog was tricky, as I do not have a pet. I had to carefully visualize it's movements. Thankfully, a neighbor's dog was a good 'stand in.' Dance continues to be one of my favorite themes. It's an amazing art in itself.
