So i've decided to have one establishing shot of The Jackets and then having a crude cut out movement of them all going into the club/pub called "The Masher". This will marry up the joke of them getting "mashed" every night and also the fact that in the scene after, how the butternut squash crudely moves.
Either way, i feel it's a better option to go for than the original- one of the jackets handing a beer to the carrot. Not only is this unexciting, but it's actually quite difficult to do, since the character design i've done for the jackets it quite complicated.
This way, with the stupid cut out movement, it can purposely look ridiculous and funny, and also save me some hard labour.
Here's the first establishing shot of The Jackets. Looking proper hardcore.
Now that i'm looking at it, I think they all look a bit weird all being in the same lighting, especially since they're standing in a staggered position. I'll alter the brightness on the two behind so that they look like they're in the environment a bit more.
A few hours later...
I've just finished the background for the second part of the scene. It was actually really hard to do, since i dont usually remember what the OUTSIDE of clubs look like, and i also seem to remember that they're pretty boring on the outside. a bit like an old building.
I had a stab anyway, with some help of google images, I based it on this club:
And then produced this:
Animating crudely is always easy, and to me, it looks hilarious.
... Probably because it reminds me of South Park. Okay so i might be borrowing a small amount of empathy from loyal viewers of the show..
I feel it needs some mood lighting inside- like disco lights to making it look "pumpin'" :P
Here we go:
