A shot I made for the Seven Stars Re-Animate Project, which is another group re-animation project, this time re-animating an episode from the classic anime Dragon Ball.
This time I experimented more with puppet-style cut-out animation, which allows me to utilize a much more complex visual coloring style. The elements are painted using custom Photoshop brushes to give them the grungy textured look. The puppet rig are made using the plug-in duIK in AfterEffects.
The finished project can be watched here:
Also included in this clip is a comparison between the re-animated shot and the original anime shot.
