I was on a call with a client last week and we got talking about Minecraft.
He’s like me, sort of out of touch with contemporary pop culture but familiar with the basics. He said something that sent me doodling aimlessly while we talked:
“Yeah the bloke who made Minecraft must be loaded now, what’s his name?….Snooki?…Snotch or something?”
And so the first sketch was born: Snooki meets Notch, Jersey Shore meets Minecraft.
I cant figure out if she should be called Snotchie or Snotchy, any ideas? I have Pauly D as Pauly C. Maybe I’ll add the Pick-uation…
Then after talking to another dude last week about animating in After Effects we agreed we should see what we can come up with in a 24hr period and compare results.
That is to write, record audio, animate and upload in 24hrs. Sort of like the 24hr Comic Day Challenge thing but for animated cartoons.
I’ve jumped the gun a little, I already redrew the characters but it should be fun smashing this into a 30 second cartoon.
It’s been about 11 months since I started playing with After Effects for Character Animation and already made a few fairly complexed yet basic 2D cartoons. Check some of them out here
