Artwork title: The Captain's Hat

Without dialogue, and in the short timeframe given, this work was inspired by those older cartoons that made its main character fail, fall and flail in increasingly hilarious ways. It also lended itself well to the practice in class for more traditional 2D animation.

I'm one of those people who love animation but have never properly pushed themselves to learn fundamentals and put any of it to practical use, but here I am. My name's Kai, I'm Chinese and I'm going to try my best to advance myself in this amazing field of artistic expression. I love the design and work that goes into video games, I get wowed by insane art styles and I'm a sucker for strong kinetic motion and crazy shots in animation.
