We don’t want to give too much away, but here is a still from the shot I have been working on for the better part of the month (clocking in at a whopping 5 seconds.) It shows the initial and final forms of the animation. The top part is drawn in-computer using a tablet pen in flash. Once the animation is done all solids are replaced with a line copy that gets traced in pencil. Some work in aftereffects takes care of the color. Hopefully you will see these girls playing hopscotch in one of the scenes panning across the playground.
