This next blog post just literally popped up in my Facebook update as I scanned through my friend’s post on a Cal Art student which did a magnificent animation piece. Toniko Pantoja, currently a 2nd year student created a film short called Crayon Dragon, which is a wordless narrative depicting a tale of a girl befriending a painted one winged dragon. Although short, the storytelling and ambient music weaved into the animation harmoniously leaving viewers wanting to know more of this strange world the girl has illustrated. The illustration is astounding as it embodies a semi-Disney essence with a more loose and sketchy style, which is quite refreshing. Much of the movements and panning were really well executed that added to the whimsical feel.
