A Colorful Panda.-

Once upon a time,
the storywriter I usually work with, Tommaso Valsecchi, came with the idea of a Panda sad because of his lack of colors.
I'm so glad that he actually sold this story and I'm waiting for his book (illustrated by a guy that I don't know) coming in 2010.-

Inspired from that story, I made these pictures with my favourite tecnique: collage.- maybe collage is not cool anymore (at least for Italian publishing houses) but I think that is very good to improve color skills and semplification.-

Here some examples of what I did (some time ago):

Bouncing Ball with tail

Hello ladies and gentlemen!
I've started to study flash at Vanarts a couple of weeks ago and the first exercise was the bouncing ball with a tail.- Firstly I made this assignment drawing everything in the classical way, frame by frame but then I've realized that "Hey! This ball reminds me an head from france revolution! Why don't make this animation more interesting? So I did this video! Is very short so if you have 10 seconds, turn on your speakers and watch it! Every comment is more than welcome!

P.S. This is the BG in a better resolution!
