I'm pleased with the shift currently, but the lightning effect is still a tad off with the timing. I've animated fire before, but lightning is new to me. Fortunately, I have friends who have animated lightning that I can ask for tips and feedback. I have been researching lightning effects and here is one video I used as reference:
This second animation is where the store transforms into "Wonderland." There are two versions below to give a sense of effect and a sense of timing. Here is the one for the effect which is animated on 2s:
This second one is animated on 4s presently, but will have more inbetweens so that it is on 2s for the final:
This third one, I wanted a few butterflies to fly by during the animation, so I researched butterflies flying. Here is the video I used as reference:
Here is the loop I made:
This last one that I have to show is a walk cycle for some rabbit-like creatures that will be in the background of a couple scenes. Like the transformation scene, I have two versions to show. The first is a line art rough and the second is a style rough. Here is that line art loop:
This is another cycle I need to fix since the steps don't seem to be timed the same creating an inconsistent walk cycle which may work if done intentionally and well.
With a lot of the set-up and roughs I've managed to create thus far, I believe that I'll be able to turn in at least a decent animation. I hope you're all excited to see this project next week!
