“Tree Trunks” Animatic

October 9th, 2009

This isn’t the “Tree Trunks” clip I intended to show, but I’ve been having trouble in the uploading department. But this one’s pretty good, too. Just different. Jeremy Shada as Finn, John Di Maggio as Jake, and Polly Lou Livingston - whom you may remember from Pen’s “Bravest Warriors” short - as Tree Trunks.

Different Times of Day in Ooo

October 8th, 2009


In the old days of animation - say, pre-1986 - it was an unwritten rule all action had to be set out-of-doors on a cloudless afternoon around 3:00 p.m. Now, however, it’s common to see all times of day represented within a single eleven-minute cartoon. This makes more work for the color stylists and background painters, of course. Here are three different pairs of backgrounds from “The Jiggler”, each set more or less the same design-wise (from Ghostshrimp and/or Santino Lascano). Adventure Time’s background painting is handled by Sue Mondt and Martin Ansolabehere under the art directorship of Nick Jennings.
