Just a couple of animated GIFs from an earlier animated short (Critter’s Bedtime). I retouched the scenes by adding a background (previously white) and a shadow below the character.
The character rig is pretty simple, although slightly more detailed/advanced than that of the Fish Rig. This is due to the use of the eye and mouth rigs, as well as the legs/feet (using bones).
It was really fun to animate!
If you’d like to create your own animated GIFs for free and without someone else’s watermark or branding messages embedded in it, use GIMP (refer to my GIF creation post).
GIMP is an Open Source software, so it’s FREE even for commercial use.
