After working with Sam on a video for VetPaw, he reached out to me again with an exciting new project.
These (left) are the first sketches I made of Sam. Before any animation work was started, I wanted to gain Sam's confidence (and my own confidence) that I could capture his essence in a drawing. You can see that I was being a bit experimental with the drawings at this stage, figuring out what.
The research stage of this project was particularly fun because it involved re-watching lots of Sam's amazing videos!
