Above is my four shots. When I was assigned these shots, I was incredibly nervous. I mean the title alone Ken Meets Barbie, sends a shiver of panic up my spine. Two soulmates meeting for the 1st time, and it was all entirely in my hands. Luckily alot of the hard work was already done for me. Animator Angus MacLane is the Ken lead on this film. He showed me alot of tips on how to animate him - less being more.
Also, rather then sketching or shooting reference, I used this moment from A West Side Story as inspiration.
Thanks Maria, Tony and Angus. Couldnt have done it without ya :)
