Dreamy Kitty Rotoscope Animation


So this took the better part of a year and a half to animate. Almost 7000 frames. It was very meditative...and quite the learning experience. I tried to make sure it was just a relaxing thing to do on weekends for a few hours at a time. No stress. No deadlines. Just something for me. Plus, COVID-19 was a good excuse to just chill at the computer, so why not MAKE something?

I like to imagine that this is what Pixel experiences when she goes into dreamland. Trippy abstract things she sees out the window, or stuff she catches me watching on TV. Chasing shapes and colors. Catching those time extensions to fight off the seizures and stay in this world just a little bit longer.

The most annoying part is that I had to butcher the quality and framerate to export it for YouTube. The original file on my computer runs and looks so much better, but it keeps crashing when I try to export it. Very annoying. But I promised myself I'd upload it before 2021. Rotoscope is a lot of work. I don't think I'll be doing it again anytime soon.
