I promised I’d post a few updates during the development of the web-series project, so here’s a little bit of info and some behind the scenes goodness I thought would be interesting to share.
For those of you that follow Second Lunch on Facebook, you know that I recently finished the pilot episode when I teased this doozy of a screenshot to you guys.
Here’s the thing. I really liked how the pilot turned out–animation is hard, yo! My friends helping me with the web-series really liked the pilot as well. But there was something about it that just seemed off to me. It still felt like a rough draft–like there was a better version somewhere in there waiting to be found.
Here’s a larger version of another frame in the pilot:
I looked at that image and I thought to myself Tim, you can do better than this. DO BETTER. So I scraped the drawings from the pilot and I went back to the drawing board (literally!) to raise the bar.
And here’s what that same frame above looks like now:
That feels so much better. Right?
Anyway, I just wanted to actually show you guys what the web-series will look like visually, but for now, it’s time for me to hunker back down, write/revise episodes, and as usual: DRAW!
Hopefully more stuff soon,
