Today I have been drawing the keys for my dog walk cycle and Stanley putting his hands out to stop the dog.

This is the line test of my second shot where stanley gets splashed by a puddle.

I am now going to start on my car shots. I have been taking photos of cars from a high angle camera for my first shot as the viewer will see the tops of the cars as if looking down at them from a window.

Today I made the water effects for my second shot when a car drives through a puddle and splashes stanley! I am really pleased with the way this one came out as it was hard to find the right angle to aim the water as the car drives through it.

This is some of the progress ive been making with my beginning shots. I've re-done some of the drawings to make the actions more expressive.

I am attemtping a dog panting today which is not a very easy task. I have researched the movement by looking at the recent pixar film Up and the actions of the character 'Dug' as he is a similar shape to my Herbert character. Dug is full of expression and life just like a real dog and i want to bring this vitality into my character. I have taken screen shots from a particular scene in Up where the viewer is introduced to Dug and he is full of enthusiasm for his new friends. The way this shot has been animated makes you feel like you're looking at a real dog.

This is a quick line test of the keys for my dog walk over the camera!
