Hybrid Animation Test

I animated a quick test on top an older swinging test rotoscoping over a 3D model.

Basically, I took the 3D model of the bass guitar into Harmony and animated the model in a 3D space. Then, I drew the bass over-top the model and deleted the model-leaving a rotoscoped animation which keeps the bass on model at all times.

Here is some of the material I've been creating to help my artists.

Shots So Far...

Here's some pretty close to finished shots...and by that I mean they are rough keyframe animation....but that's what they're supposed to look like during this part of the film!

Concept Art by Susan Kang

Just thought I'd wrap up all of Susan's great work in a post. Particularly draw attention to the cathedral she designed and painted. So, below is a GIF of the progression from sketch to finished piece.
