Whenever Jake Page draws something, I just can't help myself.
Jake just keeps on reinventing himself and bringing that fire with his art. Look at all those luscious layers!
Riggin' it up
Mike Overbeck's Joysticks n' Sliders is magic voodoo sauce for rigging. If you do any type of character animation in After Effects, you must get this tool.
When you have 2d assets but want to pretend you're in the 3rd dimension...
Having all the layers broken out allowed us to give the scene some subtle parallax.
And, a couple short-ish videos to show some of the rigging process.
Thanks for watching!
