Cobra Commander Protester

I've been working on quite a few project in the past few months and things are finally starting to slow down. So, I recently started collaborating with some friend for a series of shorts dedicated to Cobra Commander ( a la the merchandise machine known as GI Joe). It involves his mundane antics post-cartoon glory. After coming up with some of the character designs, I delved into some of the animated assets. Naturally, I created a GIF below. It's Cobra at a protest in a classic 80's cartoon fist pumping motion.

Cobra commander kind of has a Daft Punk thing going on.

"Blast you meddling teenagers!"

More Star Wars..ugh.

I've been so overwhelmed with freelance work recently that I haven't gotten around to posting my finished Empire Strikes Back Uncut video. Hopefully the majority of you will get what I was going for here (George Lucas made a fortune off of merchandising and he's a bloated manatee of a man). Lot's of compositing and After Effects work went into this one as the screenshots below convey.

I'm pretty happy with it. The only thing I'm slightly disappointed in is not keeping a correct line weight for the 4th shot where Lukes face is shove into Lucas' fat belly. I misconstrued my own notes in a rush to get it done.

If you haven't been to the Empire Strikes Back site, check it out. There's a lot of really awesome animations there sprinkled in with way, way too many Lego stop-motions.
