These are some of the elements I drew for inclusion in my first stop motion animation film project. The whale is composed of tracing paper and shaded with colored pencil. I was attempting a floaty, ethereal feel while also remaining invested in keeping its constructed nature sweetly obvious with the lesser transparency at the overlapping joints. The cityscape and the waves represent a great deal of time and work. Each wave is its own layer, drawn, cut and painted, to add depth and movement to the animation.
