Scene 5 Complete!

I completed Scene 5 a lot faster than I thought I would, the tough animation of Matt and Puddles getting buffeted by the wind was easier to animate than first thought. I am very happy with how it turned out, Scene 5 also included many angled shots of the glider 'Bettie 11' which was hard to draw consistently. Here's two screenshots from Scene 5:

(Boro hands Matt a pair of goggles before take-off)

(Matt and Puddles getting hit by some serious wind!)

Now its onto the last scene of the film, scene 6. However that does not mean that the end is in sight, this scene has a lot of landscape animation with more flying and other niggly bits. Update on Scene 6 progress soon!

I am now into Scene 5 where something big is about to happen to Matt and Puddles. However I am going to get secretive from here on out, but here's a unrevealing screenshot:

Scene 4 Part 3

As I hoped Scene 4 is progressing quicker than Scene 3 alreadying reaching the one minute mark. The rest of Scene 4 consists of mostly lip sync, however what's going to cnsume all my time is the complex animated loops I am about to do. Things such as Boro rowing the boat from different angles. For the time being here are some screenshots from Scene 4 part 2:

(Boro waits for Matt and Puddles to get in boat)

(An unhappy puddles in the boat, surrounded by water)
