2 bg options

I have 2 BG options for this scene. While the red version has more of an overall harmony and mood once the character is in the scene, the blue version really makes her POP. Since this is a very short 2 second scene and the audience will have little time to take in what's going on, I decided to go with the blue version. The character stands out and the scene is quickly readable. If it was a long scene I would have gone with the red.

Orgasma intro


Clean up and break into symbols.


This is going to be a quick shot of Orgasma shooting laser beams from her boobs. This is one of the many actions scenes that will make up the intro to the show.

another into screen shot

Since Toilet Puck is the main character, I tried to squeeze as much of him as I could into the intro. An easy way to do that is to have a montage page like this.

intro screen shot

This is a screen shot from the TOILET PUCK intro. It is going to be an action packed, fast paced intro with each and every character in the Toilet Puck Universe to date!

This is the set up for a short pan shot. The scene starts on the right and then pans left to bring Toilet Puck into the shot.

scene 5

This scene has some pretty good flash animation in it. It has a nice flow to it, doesn't look too mechanical, and definitely does not look too rigged and puppet like.

what's betwen a 3/4 and a straight on shot?

7/8? 4/5? I should have paid more attention in math class instead of stare at Mrs. D'Angelo's legs. What ever it is, this is how his head looks in that view. It's an inbetween for a head rotation going from a front on shot to a 3/4 head shot.

exit stage right

This was a time consuming walk cycle that had to be done, just to get the character to exit the scene. This was also far more challenging than any walk cycle I have ever done. My first attempt used only symbols and tweening in flash. I did not like it at all. It looked mechanical and lifeless. Next, I tried to draw it with the brush tool in flash. But without a Cintiq, and only a wacom tablet I could not get perfect accuracy on my lines and inbetweens. So what I ended up doing was roughing in the walk cycle with the brush, it was okay to be off in the rough. Then I used symbols only where neccessary and manually drew the rest with the line tool. It was a lot of work. But it was worth it. There was an old Flintstones episode with a character, either Cary Granite or Rock Quarry or some other movie star of the time, and he had the craziest walk cycle ever! His legs did all kinds of wonky bending, but it worked. I wanted a bit of that in Pee Brain's walk cycle, but slower. A retarded looking walk cycle for a retarded clone character.
