2019 Node Ident
In 2019 we decided to create a personal project, and what better excuse than to do an ident for Node in Melbourne. It's one of our favorite events of the year, and we haven't missed one yet.
Ident, Character Design, Character Animation
The theme for this year was "fruity" and we ran with it. We interpreted this as a psychedelic acid trip and enlisted the help of our friends to make it happen. This project was a lot of fun and was our first foray into character animation. Like any project, it wasn't without its challenges, but we're please as punch with the end result.
"Why did you make this?"
Initial character designs for "Norman" by the incredible Robin Davey.
Norman brought to life by the talented Akhil Mittal.
Our eight legged friend here was a late addition by Chris Angelius, as Norman needed more encouragement to vacate his acid trip.
