The Star Wars Wicket and Chewie animation / e-card I had been working on late last year is finally up and posted on Hallmarks site. If I had a little more time I would have liked to have added a few more sound effects however, I think it turned out pretty good. Wicket and Chewie were a blast to work on and I was super excited that Lucas liked the designs and approved them along with the initial animatic I did below. The story, art, directing and key frame poses/animation were done by me based on my animatic, all in vector with a few raster files for texture. I’m hoping I can do more of these e-cards with a variety of characters from the Star Wars universe. I have a bunch of ideas brewing so I know the force is with me! LOL!
Below is the original pencil animatic I did so you can see the before and after.
