Some of the graphics I made for my team’s animated short! Most teams didn’t even bother with making interesting titles or credits, but I thought it would really add to the overall package in terms of professionalism and graphics are more my thing anyway so I volunteered!
The main character hermit crab’s name was Kerp. The title logo and our team logo were placed over a montage of the scenery. The movie is basically about Kerp giving away a whole bunch of items that he has collected on his shell, and getting the girl once his true self isn’t all covered up. Apparently, ladies dig minimalists. Bling is not the answer!
I made our team logo a parody of the MGM lion. ;) An epic whale sound plays when this goes up. I kept the style fairly minimal since these graphics were just a nice extra.
For the credits, I created three illustrations of some of the characters in the film showing ‘what happens after’, inspired by Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks credits. They were a big hit!
(Heeheehee, my sea slug!) During the film, Kerp gave these items to these characters. I originally thought of drawing the turtle trying to play chess with the sea slug, but they wouldn’t have had enough pieces so it didn’t really make sense.
For the drawings, I tried to show a bit of character development in them rather than just drawing the characters standing plainly. The ones with the crabs are probably the most successful in that.
