The Self Inside

I had an animation idea that I put down in a sketch for further exploration.

I also did a quick value study as well as a basic color overlay.

The cutaway shows some of what the animation idea is about, but there is much more to the story. It deals with self image(hopefully obviously) and the importance of getting out of your own way and getting out of your own head.

    … Looks like someone has more internet at their disposal. Do post more.

    same internet, I have just trained my impatience to be silent (and built a local development server and got filezilla working in the wee hours). Using xampplite to edit locally until I’m happy with look, and then massuploading.

    Good to know the streets(labs) is watchin’!

    Well it seems someones ingenuity is still intact. Good show old boy. The labs will continue to watch, till the internet stops… Or it gets boring which ever happens first.
