cd-rom video game – “magic school bus explores the ocean”

2d animator; illustrator

details the challenge with these projects was that often they would require me to make fun and interesting animations on an extremely tiny scale.

for example, in the scene above, i had to create a clickable animation of a lifeguard that sits in his station (lower left), then stands up and looks around through his binoculars – in less than 20 x 50 pixels. other challenges were things like “create an animation of pangaea breaking apart into the separate continents,” or “create 20 different sand sculpture components that the user can mix interchangeably to make their own castle – and then animate tiny characters into those components, each less than 20 pixels square.”
