Fairly OddParents

Butch Hartman's Fairly OddParents is a guilty pleasure of mine. I just love his retro character design and super quick humor that is showcased in every episode. Here's to you Butch!

Lionel Lineman: Fishing

video
Today Lionel gives fishing a whirl. I wanted to emphasize more on his posing in hopes that his body language was easily readable. I know I could have spent more time on his struggle reeling in and pulling on the line, but Lionel tests are purely experimental.

Lionel Lineman: Baseball

video
Well I was able to get Lionel to do another quick test for me today. He's doin a more dynamic animation this time: throwing a baseball.
Put some pepper on it Lionel!

Lionel Lineman: Scared

video
LOOKY HERE! It's my first animation since I finished my senior film in May! I still got it!!
Here is my new minor character that I'll be showcasing on here, Lionel Lineman.
I'm trying out a new animation program and I was just goofing around with it when I came up with this little animation test. I want to try and do at least a 3 second animation test once a week.
So without further ado, Lionel getting spooked in a typical character animation test.
Welcome to the MatTOONArt cast Lionel!
