AHSOKA TANO: ONE LOVELY JEDI

Ahsoka Facebook Banner

This drawing presented a challenge: make a highly stylized animated character look a little more realistic. I wanted Ahsoka to look  more like the Leia and Padmé drawings and less like she does in the Clone Wars serials, but it’s not like I could base her likeness on a human actress. What to do?!

NO POACHING!

This charming Lego stop motion animation, made by my friend Gabe Jensen and his daughter, totally made my morning! Not bad for a video that’s under a minute long! Check it out and if you like it as much as I do, give it a thumbs up!  -S.

Look at this CG animation short from Dutch animation studio Job, Joris & Marieke! It is both utterly charming and seriously disturbing at the same time. I love the way they animated the boobs! Boobs.

Congrats J, J & M!  -S.

Anyway, this morning, Woodring posted a short animated film by Bavarian animator, Andreas Hykade, called Love & Theft and it’s pretty psychedelic and hypnotic. Check it out:     I’m going to have to watch this a few more times to absorb some of the symbolism. I’ll also be checking out Hykade’s other animations. Here’s {Read More}
