3D, Animation, Design, Photoshop
George was my major project in my first year of FdSc CGI 3D Modelling and animation. The overall idea of George was to have an animation featuring him and his imaginary friend going on an adventure. A basic design of the look of the character was given to me, but I was left with complete freedom as to how the story unfolds and the design of both George and his friend.
My idea of George's friend is his favourite TV (bumbling) Superhero, Mr Pringle. With this in mind, and with the target audience being of toddler age, I decided that a learning element should be added to the animation. Having a Superhero as a friend, the idea of the duo saving someone, quickly sprung to mind. The final animation features George and Mr Pringle saving Teddy from crossing the road unsafely, and teaching him how to do it correctly.
I have included character designs, test animations, an Animatic, and the final animation.
