Last week we worked as a group to develop our skills in how to create animation by merging two objects together. This was done in a chain-like way, in that the whole piece flowed with other drawings so that everything continued from each other, and then formed a looped motion.
This exercise worked really well, and the result was very successful. The object I took in was a mini snake-lamp light, which I thought was an interesting item to use for this task because of its articulation. The second was a pair of dark sunglasses. Starting off with the first drawing of the lamp as Picture One, I drew the lamp as normal. My next drawing was the last (the sunglasses) as Picture Fourteen, and then the middle scene drawing of Picture Seven that was a blend of both objects together. Working in-between these three stages allowed me to create the rest of the morph-from snake light to sunglasses.
To me, it had a Sci-Fi, shape-shifting alien feel to it. My only worry is that it may look a little phallic?
