Treats and terrors

January was ALL ON, with kids at home again plus trying to stay on top of Earlybird plus keeping clean plus watching Taskmaster. The schedule for Earlybird has slipped a little as I've been working on it half days and some evenings, but it's in a pretty good place and fingers crossed/knock wood animation will be finished in the next two weeks.

Here's a frame Hot Off The Press - this snakey reckoning rendered last night. It's from Earlybird's toughest scene, which I've been working on over the last couple of weeks. You might notice our hero has feathers growing inside his beak, which is a little like having hair growing on your tongue, which is gross. I'll be fixing bits like that with more render passes after the animation is locked down.


And here's a pizza. Why is there a pizza? You'll see!
