Animating the book!

Here’s a little shot that I did last week, from the animation that I’m currently working on. The idea is to animate my picture book; “Pete and the Enchanted book”.


Animating my picture book

I’ve been playing around with the idea of animating my book for a while now… because three years of writing and illustrating ONE story isn’t long enough, hahaha.

below you’ll find a low-quality clip of the animation that I’ve been working on.

Book Trailer – snapshot

They say Book trailers are a brilliant way to bring books to life… and it’s true, but boy are they time consuming to create or what! Here’s a snapshot of the trailer I’m currently working on. Hopefully it will be ready by the time my book  gets published, which should be in a couple of weeks from today if everything goes according to plan!

Mrs Dyer’s cruel (animated) demise

In real life Amelia’s mother died from typhus. In my book she’s locked in a basement by Amelia and eaten alive by hungry, ferocious rats. The below animated Gif illustrates Mrs Dyer just before she’s attacked by the rats.

Animation test

I have decided to animate parts of my picture book “Amelia Dyer” for my website and this is a short animation loop. This is the scene where Mrs Dyer is locked in the basement and that square thing behind her is the basement door reference.
