Astronaut Naught

Created my own background. It actually made the whole look of the piece stronger, now things match stylistically. Added some foot sway when he gets the thrusters. And added some complications with the thrusters there at the end. Fella just can't get a break.

Oh and I patched my pin-holes

Astro Finesse

It looked like my guy was starting to fly out of control up there on the moon, so I decided to allow his stabilizer function to activate. This causes his controller/actuators to pop up on his arms and give him little thrusts to move about the space. (the outer space) There's also been some dust added that pops up when he touches the surface of the moon.

Seems like gauging rotation is tricky for me. And I miss the "Blade" tool from Final Cut Pro. Also... "Oo Ee Oo" has been stuck in my head all weekend.

Cat Elementals

River is a playful cat-wisp. She enjoys gracefully lingering about and occasionally playing amongst her surroundings. From time to time she is interrupted by the fire-cat, Peter. Peter is a mischievous flare-ball bent on what destruction he can manage between naps.

Being fire, Peter tends to cause a little more chaos, but when River's tolerance runs out she is always able to smother him down to a smolder.

Create a Character: "River"

Peter (orange) & River (gray) will be the inspiration for my first character(s).

First I will be composing River.

I want to use my video layer to create an interesting texture for her fill. I want to try and layer enough video of smoke and ideally have some overlapping and begin to blur some of the outline of the cat character. When I add Peter, I want to use fire.
