“The Pataki’s” Opening Animation Preview #1

Yeah, it’s a crazy idea (it’ll be a full 3.4 mins or so, but I’ll probably make a shorter ‘tv-sized’ version too), but hey, this song and these pictures just wouldn’t get out of my head. It’s in comic-form, but it ultimately won’t be a comic… These are more like a series of storyboards.

It’s still in the works, but it’ll probably take forever (like so many other things…) since I’m doing this on my own and without any special programs… (I’m a comic artist, not an animator XD). So, it’ll be done the ‘old fashioned’ way! lol. But if you have any animation programs that you suggest that I try, I’d love to hear them. Contact me here: http://www.rejenasmiley.com/contact.html

(I’m just using ol’ Sony Vegas.) Anyway, I’ll let it be up to you on what’s going on. 🙂 (No hints on the music either! Unless you guess… but I hope you won’t! lol)
It’ll be colored and such later, too, in the full version~
Btw, I started on this like… 2008 or so, haha, so some of the drawings are old-ish. Bad me for taking so long to work on it some more. So, yeah, sorry!!
I wanted it to kind of have a sketchy/painterly style. It’ll be done with a mix of traditional and digital mediums. Hope you like the preview (though it may not be much, sorry)!

If you don’t know the story of “The Pataki’s” (a sequel of “Hey Arnold!” of sorts that didn’t happen… yet! :P), I suggest you check out this link!: http://heyarnold.wikia.com/wiki/The_Patakis
