The last Gabby film of Calarts! So long, 48-hour lockdowns!
As artists, we can put infinite work and detail into tiny or large portions of the canvas. However, it’s the application of artistic knowledge that directs the attention of the viewer. In this example, the part with absolutely no work (a square left white) hogs all the attention, when all the work went into the colorful squares (which even have patterns of color theory, if you look carefully).
Well, technically it’s a barracuda.
And so, poor fishy lost a fin as he scraped it on the way into the cave.
This was my third animation project, where I had to animate a cylinder and make it jump. The material could be anything– a tin can, rubber, or… in this case, perhaps gelatin?
Our second animation project entailed designing a fish and making it believably swim/float/drift through the water. Mine’s a punk rock fishy, hence the headbang.
All painted in gouache; spent approximately three hours on each.
