Highlight 1

Highlight 1

I particularly like this scene where I added the blush effect (that wasn't initianlly in the script) and played around with timing to enhance the animator's work.

Highlight 2

Highlight 2

Highlight 3

Highlight 3

This wasn't the hardest scene to animate, but definitely the most complicated one for me, with over ten layers of animation happening simultaneously. Also it was weirdly satisfying hitting those helpless crowd with a food cart....
