Girl kissing the screen

The last days I worked in  a short animation, it was a test for an Android application. They wanted a 5 seconds 'freestyle' animation (my own idea and style) for use as an alert for incoming SMS, email, Facebook and Twitter notifications.

I animated in the traditional way, with pencil and paper, then scanned and vectorized in TB and painted with Flash.

Kjell 'Kjellen' Bigset

Kjell Bigset works for Fjord1 as a bus driver. He lives in Hovdebygda, a little town in the Ørsta fiord. Until here everything would be normal, the life of an ordinary citizen. But no, I'm talking about 'Kjellen' a character created by Thomas Ryste for the norwegian comedy show 'Klypa'. I find him very funny, in some ways reminds me to Richie Richard from the english serie 'Bottom', a histrionic character with the ease of moving from happiness to violence in question of seconds. 

Here you can see a sketch from Klypa, it's in norwegian, so maybe you don't understand anything. For me it's a bit hard ( I understand about 70% ), I don't have a perfect knowledge of the language and I don't understand all , plus he talks in sunnmøring, one of the dozens of dialects that exist in Norway.




I tried to make my own version of the character, I used a retro-cartoon style, like Dexter or Powerpuff Girls. It isn't my style but if you think in animation terms, it's easier in this way.


I recorded two pieces of audio to make a little lipsync. All was done in Flash, using graphic symbols and tween animation.

Inking in Illustrator

Some days ago I discovered a fantastic blog called 'Cartoon Snap', made by Sherm Cohen, a storyboard artist an animation director. It's full of interesting and useful information such some tutorials like storyboarding, digital painting with ArtRage or Inking drawings in Illustrator.

I never inked in Illustrator, I tried for the first time while I was watching the videotutorial and... I liked it, I i need to continue improving the technique, but in general terms I'm glad with the obtained result.
