Development poop.

Aparrently according to broadcasters, talking animals are only for preschool(fritz the cat anyone?!)

so I have to slap a human head on him. hopefully salvage the body keys. Jose did the voice; but I don't wanna do a direct charicature. he's a big guy who owns a club- used to be a musician.
I did some searle studies to warm up, I almost like the top left one? ball point pen assness:

so I'll keep stewing this one. hoo boy.

They hate animation, and wish we'd all do photorealistic CGI mocap, because cartoons are silly and for babies.

OOOOOh but I liked the rat! I think you should work with the bottom page stuff, I like the guy with the mustache, but also the one in the middle who reminds me of the rat. But what do I know, I'm just a non-animating girl with too much to say.

may i suggest keeping the original and drawing on some thick glasses and a mustache?
when the broadcaster asks what the **%$ you did, just tell them that now its a human dressed up as an animal whos pretending to be human...
at that point i can almost guarantee an approval.

I like the rat. But I enjoy any animal in a suit. The bottom heads look really great though.I really like how the ball point pen looks. I like the one on the bottom right in profile in the first one. Ideally I think you should just do a drawing of the head of the broadcaster and hand it back. then they'll be faced with rejecting themselves.

Aw, man--I LOVE the Rat drawing; he's awesome!!! Broadcasters, along with--(insert) don't know shit.

You guys are truly amazing.

BTW--I opt for the smiling guy in the lower right corner, with the soul-patch (in the first page of sketches)...though would prefer the rat anyday.

Hey Murray, I love your animation. My grandfather was from Nova Scotia also and his name was Murray Donaldson Bain. We must be related! The world is a very small place!
