Little Red Animation

 


The Adventure of Little Red – Animation
Here is my first attempt at a finished motion comic. The transitions after the page turns are super choppy, but otherwise I’m satisfied.

Comic: A fully rendered comic of an updated version of an old fairytale. I chose Little Red Riding Hood, using a Japanese spin. The fox is a Kitsune – a type of fox spirit known for being able to shape-shift and create will-o-wisps. It was also inspired by a Japanese version of rock-paper-scissors, where the fox beats the village leader (here represented by his daughter-little red), hunter beats the fox, and the village leader outranks the hunter.
