Animation progress so far

I havn't really shown what I have done altogether on my animation so  thought I'd put the scenes I've done together in the correct order show my progress. Please keep in mind this far from finished and a few scene's need to be completely reworked.

Music and Sound

Yesturday I met up with my sound guy to discuss what I want for the animation.
He seemed to understand what I wanted which opening up with a cheesy 60's alien invasion theme
(e.g. The opening theme for "the day the earth stood still,

He mentioned doing the sound effects should be no problem and seemed to be really emthusasitc about doing them which is good given the sound effects is probably going to be the thing which will make or break the animation.
Trying to get the idea of what ambient music I want was rather difficult, I wanted something mysterious and yet tranquil but changes up when the first alien dog is in the shadows and again for the gaint monster. The only example I could find was this (starting from the 14 min mark

Final major project update part 2

I haven't posted for a while mostly because I've just been getting on drawing the key frames for my project and I wanted to show some animations (even if not completed) in my next post. So here are some animations that I have done but it's not everything I've done because I want to finish a bit more on them before I show them.

Animation Tests

I've started doing my animation tests and so far they're going okay but I think I'm going have to back to scratch again for my walk, this is my second attempt and I'm not completely satisfied with how it's looking. But for now I'll finish it off and move onto a new scene just so I don't run out of time with only a half animation done.

Finishing backgrounds

I've have now completed the lining and adding the main colours to my backgrounds and the next step is to add textures and shading which shouldn't take to long (I'll mostly likely have them done by tonight) but I've already finished one which I posted below.

Each section is it's own layer for easy editing if needed and this will be the same for each ground.
Tomorrow I should be able to move onto doing key frames for the animation.
