Hi! I'm Jessica and I'm an Illustration student in London. This blog is made up of my work and work-in-progresses.
It’s a quick little story about a boy and a cloud who both want to soak up the sun, but neither want to give way! The moral of the story is to not mess about with storm clouds. All the frames were drawn in Photoshop, and composited in AfterEffects. This was an 8 week project, and I am glad I got it finished in time.
Looking back I can see things I would like to tweak, but there is not enough time right now. The strange thing about using audio is that it changes the perception of time, so there are scenes that could have been a frame longer or shorter. It also made me rethink the moods of scenes. For the most part though, I have realised that perhaps the story is not as clear to the public as it is to me and I am already thinking of little fillers here and there which would help carry the story a lot better.
However, for now, it is quite a polished animation (for a newbie student). It’s only my third I’ve ever done, and I am improving. I’m going to tackle it a bit more, because I always did want to work in the animation field.
