small update, Thursday 20th Oct.

"Try living in a surreal world where everyone fights for survival and food. Here in this environment, Paddy; a low life scavenger finds an assorting meal which is Shell, a cute looking woodlouse whose shell protects him from anything with big teeth but maybe not hands. Hoping to find good protection, Shell finds a good spot for him to escape from any annoying predators. Unlucky for Paddy is that the chosen spot is a nest belonging to a protective and highly aggressive mother who won’t hesitate to beat up anyone approaching her brood. It’s a classic “prey and predator” game with slapstick moments in a weird animal world. Paddy won’t stop till he has a decent lunch while Shell is small enough to relax right next to the top of the food chain."
This is the "Wow" image for my project, idea was already decided, story board is complete, all I have to do now is take every single image from my camera and place it here. I like how the title of my project resembles the main characters.
This is a brief example of what the environment setting is like. A strange, surreal world composed of half desert and swamp, jungles.

Recent development

I have written a script and made a quick design of the location of where the animation is set. A desert, forest like area. Made up ofcourse and this should help the background layout of where things are.
Includes the nest site, a wide clearing next to a forest, north of it is an expansion of dried up desert and the the west of it is area of small hills and rocks. With the script written I will be able to get on with the story board immediately
Script Spettelt for Shell n Paddy

Shell & Paddy

My final major project will consist of a 2D animation using "toon boom", about two minutes consisting of a slapstick humour involving two characters in a sureal world of strange creatures
The characters are Shell and Paddy, one being a cute but targeted prey while the other is a clumsy scavenger without luck. Shell seeks better protection from predators while Paddy wants is just a snack to fill his empty stomach.
Big Momma, a protective and highly agressive mother, this proves what female t-rex was capable of doing onto others.

The idea

They are just drawings, they will be properly scanned back at the uni, the bottom image is the main idea from my "negotiation project" it shall be a comedy, goofy, slapstick world of strange animals, based on inspiration from old cartoons, monster books and my imagination.
Duckman and Insect-ball ar the main characters, one always tries to eat the other, fails while the other always gets away. Involves angry mother, cute baby, bully predator, an elephant thing that gets pummeled, bugs, evil bunny thing and some kind of burp beast.
