Test Animation of Birdy



Here's the latest progress on the Birdy animation - a collaboration I'm working on with my brother Brendan Coyle. This video is just a test animation for the project.

And to break down some of the textured components used for this piece, here are the collages I created:

Background by collage artist Megan Coyle
I made a couple collages for possible backgrounds - this is the one we went with.

Bark by collage artist Megan Coyle
Here's the bark collage texture used for the tree.

Leaves by collage artist Megan Coyle

My brother took these collages and either wrapped them around 3d models or put them on different planes.

I'm thinking I'll create another birdy for this guy to interact with and then we can create more of a scene. We shall see...

In other news, I was the Artist of the Week on E-junkie. You can read my interview with them on their website.

I LOVED your interview! Duck and Fish are adorable. Can't wait to see more! And your purple cow animation brought a big smile to my face.

Cheers!
