The dragonfly and fish sections are almost complete. Over the next month the main focus with those two sections will be the water and adding the paper cut details. I have some water footage already but I need to find some kind of effects or re animate it completely to make it appear painted... I have a few ideas at the minute but can't put them into action until I have completed this section with the birds.
Here is a very early animation test I did of the bird flying. I plan to create something similar to this for the final animation but with more wing shapes.
I also thought I would share a couple of links with you.
This first is the Little Leap Forward Production Blog. Which I have recently discovered which will have updates on all aspects of the production.
The second is Guo Yue's Official Site. He is the co-author of Little Leap Forward and who the book is based on. On his site you can read about the other books he has written and his music.
I have a busy weekend ahead with my other job and helping out at the AMEF workshop so I probably won't update again until sometime next week. :)
