10:13am Watch RHWOC while I work on guest animating an episode of Illos animated podcast. Here is a little video of me animating something. It is not a spoiler, a bit dry, so I sped it up, that made the RWH way better! also did some funny biz towards the end. 🙂 It took me a while to decide on the eyes for this scene. I am animating in a bit of an unorthodox way, just going with the feel, no storyboards or preproduction, so it takes longer. Save time and storyboard. I am just experimenting.
11:50am took Burke out to sunbathe and ate some lunch.
