From the start I have known that I wanted to use my character Lord Beasley the British bronto and his more recently created wife, Lady Saffron the Serendipitous stegosaurus. In order to save me time, I have been referring to them as Bronto and Stega.

After I drew them up, I storyboarded. This was probably my favorite part of the project. :D
Of course, I was also modeling, rigging, lighting, and texturing my two characters as well as creating an environment for them to picnic in. This was tricky because I was taking classes on some of these techniques while working on (and the quarter after!) this project.

Animation is the step I am in the middle of now, and I should be pretty much done by Friday. After that will be my cloth sim (see panels 15-18). I may end up posting a few playblasts, but for now I think I will leave you with my refined animatic. :)
Sorry this was such a long post, I promise in the future to aim for weekly updates in order to prevent another overload. Thanks for reading everyone!
