The Scene where Dirk and Alice Enter the Bad Kids' Room
Admittedly, I got a little crazy with animating stuff here. Dirk's mouth is open kinda randomly so that I know where I'm putting the dialogue. Looking back on the scene I think I might go back and take out a few of Dirk's actions, since he's all... freaking out. Then again, that fits his reaction to all the information he is finding out.
Strangely, I think I like animating the Randomals (the name I am giving the collective of... well, random animal children. Randomals. Get it?) I have no idea how I'm going to clean up all of this, but I am glad with what's going on in the scene for the most part.
I also got the final scene's background done:
I tried to base the zoo off of a couple of pictures I found using Google Image Search:
The posters I more or less made up on the spot, but I tried to make them seem like convincing Zoo posters. You know, with pictures of animals doing cool stuff or in interesting poses... things the animals in the zoo rarely seem to do. Since they mostly sleep or eat or ignore your existence.
Still not entirely sure what I'm going to do with those big open green spaces. I might put some kind of shrubbery, maybe in the shape of zoo animals like in one of the pictures.
More updates are on the way, hopefully sometime this year!
