Dug up from the archives, I made this a few years back as part of a personal project that never saw the light day. I’ve dusted it off and intend doing something with it.
Originally created to be something of a homage to the likes of Pigeon Street, it was pencil sketched on heavy weight paper and then re-inked over a light box onto pure bleached white copy paper using fine liners. Each of the parts where inked separately so that I could animate it.
Currently it’s rigged up in Adobe After Effects using an algorithm on the wheels that is tied to the buses velocity. This meant I could animate the main body of the bus and the wheels would automatically roll according to the buses inertia.
