heres the rough animation i did for the very first episode of Motorcity. I was really trying to do something different from my other stuffs, well it was the first episode and nobody was sure how the action scene would end up look like so i gave it my best shot. (im super happy it made it to the end of the intro)

...yes i was also referencing FLCL.. i tried. :)

I love the animation. Every time someone asks me why i like the show so much, I tell them that the animation is amazing.
The story is great, but if the animation was different, I wouldn't like the show as much. Gah, I cannot even describe...

I'm really curious about the animation style of the characters in Motorcity. I don't know the correct terms, but it looks like they're computer animated and then rendered into looking like 2D-animation. I would be really happy to get this clarified. ^^; Great animation anyway! Love the show.

Nice referencing FLCL ... man teach me your ways. Im emotionally torn that I didn't get any action shots. On one hand, I would've loved to animate Mike in some crazy action sequence, but on the other hand I felt like I wouldn't have done it justice with my current skill set. :) If some more Motorcity pops up in the future I'll be ready though >:D

Cheers,
A fellow MC animator :)

Oh yea the deadlines probably made it even tougher. I was glad that I got some shots that had a little bit of action in it though and just working on animation on MC was already super fun :) Also, thanks for the encouraging words!

After seeing a lot of you guys work especially thru adult swim I am so amazed and really wish I could work along side you guys up there. But I dont think an internship would be feasible for me. Being married with a bunch of loans and bills etc. I guess I just have to prove myself some other way...how about a gang like initiation? I'm sure I can survive that. Lol

So let me get this straight...you guys have this incredibly awesome face rig set up but you are doing the bodies as freehand animation? Are you guys using flash's basic tools to not only draw the frames but color and ink? If so, do you use pressure option on the brush or using pen tools for more exact lines? I am amazed at the look of the animation and for seeing it all done here in the US instead of overseas. Congrats on a great looking product.
