Animated Indiana Jones update

With the news of Disney buying the rights to future Indiana Jones movies, I figured this would be a good time to show what I've been up to lately, regarding my Animated Indy project. Getting there, slowly, but steadily.

3JS Music Video

Here is a music video we made for a Dutch band called 3JS. It's the first project we finished as a spanking new animation collective called Frame Order. We had about 6 weeks from start to finish, so everything had to be produced in a very tight time frame. I painted about 50 unique backgrounds for this. On average I had no more than 2 to 3 hours per background, so the focus was mainly on effect rather than a tightly finished painting. The characters were designed specifically with the animation process in mind, trying to leave out as much detail as possible, while still getting across the high quality fairytale feeling the client was after. All animation was done in Anime Studio.
