Iterations of a roller skater lacing up.

Visual Development

Movement rigging in Blender Design Criteria:
  • A vector-based illusration
  • Representative of different identities for a wider audience to connect with
  • Color palettes specific to each character whilst being unified by one fashion outfit
  • An appreciation of the slower moments in roller skating

I took advantage of Blender's Grease pencil tool to plan arm movements of the lace tying simulation. I adopted loose frames from that process and produced a high quality pass in After Effects with imported Illustrator vector drawings.
