anteater character design by Leemo626 anteater character design by Leemo626
i live near cardiff - Wales' capital city - and there is a beeeeeeg art project going on at the moment!

i'm taking part in the animation side, where we pick one of the animals from the reasonably famous cardiff castle wall, which features animal gargoyles, and do a 30 second animation of it leaving the wall and getting up to stuffs around cardiff! :D

here is my little fella- the anteater!
i will be using this project as an oportunity to do some traditional animation again; love CellAction to bits, but i miss trad'ee so bad!! >.<

Cuuuute! :)

Hey, I just read that Sweden had its first giant anteater baby born some weeks ago. And when it was suckling its mother, its long tongue hang out from its mouth like a boiled spaghetti straw, lol. I'd love to see that myself. :D

I know, right? :)

Yeah, I bet! And all that fur must make them look even more massive? I've never actually seen one myself except on TV which is hardly the same thing as seeing a real life anteater.

Ha ha ha .. oh what a mental image ... :)

I used to have this really big massive Maine Coon cross, sadly he passed away last April, but he turned into a Siamese whenever I game him a bath! His legs were like spaghetti straws, unbelievably thin. It was just an illusion from all that fluff around his body.

This little guy is already Infected with cuteness! Love his bushy tail and the stunning colour strokes, too. Can already imagine how superb he'll look in moving pictures 8-)

Which traditional methods did you use, BTW? Brush Pens? Paintbrush? Watercolour pencils? Markers?
