This was a BA (hons) IMP project and was my first venture into a flash based cartoon/animation. The brief stated that characters were to be created using Photoshop and/or Flash, and the story could be any of my choosing.
The story is set around a Thief who overhears two off duty guards discussing a Diamond which has recently been put into storage. He then sets out to obtain the Diamond, but not before running into his own little obstacles, and eventually fumbling at the last hurdle.
When creating the characters I chose to take pictures of people, and in Photoshop, make use of the pen tablet. A bold line would be drawn around the outside of the body, and thinner lines used to define facial and body features. Colour samples were taken in the area of the body I would be colouring to give a relatively accurate representation.
