main · projects · hockey chicken · introduction


The hockey chicken project was created because I wanted to play around with 2d animation to give myself a short break from the 3d animation I have been working on.

Using flash and after effects, I wanted to create a cartoon of a chicken playing sports. The process actually began before that when I was just creating a test animation of a chicken character I had quickly designed and had him getting hit by a baseball. Then people I showed it to liked it so much that I realized the sports theme really worked for the character so I wanted to put him in a hockey game.

The chicken character works best (and plays out funniest) if he is not really in control of what is happening to him and he has to deal with it as it happens (as every cartoon chicken should).
