4 years went by so fast...

Tomorrow is the last day of my program! I can't believe it...
I decided to make another version of my business card, so now you can either get the card with girls on it or the one with owlies! I really like how this one turned on. It will also have 2 rounded corners so it will be sorta leaf shaped (fancy!). I'm excited. [The perks of having a mom who is a trade printer <3 ] & below are all the owls!
I love drawing birds & owls so I decided to explore some designs and this is what I came up with...Once I'm done this week, this site is going to get a makeover!

Bicycle, Bicycle...

I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike...In lieu of my film being complete (minus a few more tweaks here and there), I decided to do some personal art! aka draw more girls... trying to develop my style.

I never realized this before.

Je suis fini!

My Film is finished!! Never thought this day would come.
Not uploading the final film quite yet as I still have little things I want to tweak before Sheridan Industry Day 2012.
For now please enjoy this animation of Owly on a green-screened background.
In this scene he is interacting with different objects which I put together in After Effects. The invisible objects in this animation made this scene very hard to animate since I had to anticipate where everything would go. I find this video quite funny on its own.

Owly Green Screened! from Kasia Niton on Vimeo.

& an on set shot of how this piece was created.

More to come soon!
