Falling back into animation

Almost a year has past since I last animated Guy. I've doodled him a thousand times and thought about him everyday. The last time we saw each other, he had just lost his shiney red box and was about to take a long, hard fall.

I decided early on to forget everything I learned about animation production by choosing to animate each scene in sequential order. That way I could take this journey with Guy and see where it takes us. I do have a storyboard but I haven't really looked at it for almost three years. The basic story structure is in my head and has been for a while, but it's open to unexpected twists and turns. The scene above was not in the original story.

The scene plays much better if you imagine him screaming like a little girl.

I started in the middle of the project - but more because it was a technical test on what I thought would be an easy scene to test with.

The idea of the journey sounds like a good road to travel.
