Introduction

I wanted to make a short cartoon about something simple, so I looked around for a good simple character that would be fun to animate. After some thought, I was inspired by the odd fly that makes itself guest in my apartment. I thought that this creature would make a great character for something so I started working...

Through my research into house flies I found a lot of interesting things about them and intend to incorperate them into the character. I have kept my fly fairly close to fly anatomy in general but have cartooned the proportions and simplified much of the details. I like the way that this character can emote with 4 arms, and I think it is a fun challenge to take on.

As of this writing I am still revising the character and intend to make a short cartoon with him eventually, perhaps several cartoons the length and complexity of my "Hockey Chicken" project.
