More sneak preview of the art, please visit my blog!http://alinanimation.blogspot.com/2014/03/fun-facts-about-junganew.html
One of the most anticipated projects, I art direct last year is Junganew!! They just launch the official web-site!! Please check it out!!
I am very excited about this project, because it’s an interactive educational app with lots of interactive exercise, storytelling experience and cut-out style full animation. I know … I know … you would ask, what’s so special about all these!! Every app out there have all these functions!! That’s what app is about!!
BUT, here is the fun fact … all the artwork in Junganew are created traditionally watercolor on paper … and YES!! You will get to see watercolor illustrated character with full lip-sync and cut out style animation!!
Pickle - The Little Bird Who Doesn’t Tweet - it’s my first watercolor animation app. The animation in that app is very limited, since I haven’t quite figure out how far I can push the animation with watercolor on paper. After Pickle, I worked on Junganew. With the experience of Pickle, I now know the possibility of what I can do - almost EVERYTHING in Junganew is animatable with full inter-activities. The design and planning process is challenging, but lots of fun!!
I will slowly share some fun behind-the-scene stories about this project!!
Some random sketches and mostly random doodles on my blog.
More sneak peak into the Junganew world!! :D
Seeking design inspiration for a new book project!! V excited about this new book!! Please check out the blog post for on site photos. :D
There is a sneak teaser preview of one of the most exciting apps, I work on last year. The art work of this entire app is traditionally painted with watercolor and composited in Photoshop for animation and game interface development. I am very excited about this project, can’t wait to see my watercolor illustration come to life with full interactivity and cut out animation style
