The animations above were made by modifying a piece of early concept artwork. So just a simple tester, to get an idea of what the animation might look like. The artwork was created after being approached to be the creative on a potential animated children's series about insects.
The aesthetic was created through a range of techniques and media, such as paper, stone, cardboard, photographed textures, some 3d elements, photoshop, and then all blended together to create the world of the insects - the brief was to keep as true as possible to the anatomy of the insects, create a sense of realism, whilst appealing to an age range of 4-8yr old children.
