concept (dap)

My concept was a short, simple animation. I wanted to animate a character, interacting with an environment, demonstrating expressions, gradual movements, and quick actions.

I had an idea for some fan art, of Pearl from Steven Universe, attempting to study how humans drink from aluminum cans. She’s staring at a can on the coffee table from the sofa, analyzing it. She picks it up, turns it around, then decides to open it, struggles, and when it does open, the soda bursts out. Panicked, she reflexively bubbles the can, and stares, embarrassed.

Short and sweet was the ideal, but of course, as time goes on, more ideas come into play. Most importantly though, it’s not a huge concept that has to be crammed into a semester, but a small concept that can be safely expanded outward.
