Never meet your heroes

An animation about the star of my favourite game of all time.

After getting used to Flash again by making the first 3 Chirpy animations, I decided to do something a bit more ambitious and "Never meet your heroes" was probably my biggest animation project since 2005. I worked on it over a period of a few weeks and I actually did a proper storyboard and everything. The guy on the deckchair is supposed to represent me - it's a cartoon version of the avatar I use in the LittleBigPlanet games. Though normally he'd wear a shirt. Both characters are based on the same "model", just skinned and accessorised differently. It's a bit of a lazy way of doing things but I quite like the style I used so I might use it again.
