This was a project for my Motion Techniques class-- the prompt was that it needed to include voiceover of some kind. My solution was to make a simple story with the voiceover style of a hard-boiled private investigator.

Made with After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator.

Jack Thorn Color Sheet.jpeg

The character design of Jack Thorn was dialed in pretty quickly, but his color scheme not so much. I knew what colors I had to work with from early on, but deciding which variation to go with was trickier than anticipated. I ended up going with my first version-- sometimes you need to see what doesn't work so that you can finally trust what does.
