Bedfellows puppet test animation by GuineaPigDan

Bedfellows puppet test animation

GuineaPigDan

Just so no one is confused, I do not work for Bedfellows, and I didn't draw this puppet (although I did draw some extra mouth shapes and arms). The puppet was given to me by Kris Patrick.

I have a second test with Fatigue now! http://guineapigdan.deviantart.com/art/Bedfellows-Blocking-Test-462547694

To see this scene in context, you can see part of the storyboard on the Bedfellows website, and vote for it if you'd actually like to see it become an episode. If not, it'll be made into a comic instead. http://krispyanimation.com/?p=294

Their series on You Tube can be seen here. http://www.youtube.com/user/TheBedfellows

Also, don't forget that their creator Kris Patrick is on Furaffinity as well! http://www.furaffinity.net/user/shenanigans The voice was done by Sean Chiplock, aka PommyN64

I've been working on my Bedfellows puppet test since I got out of school (since I no longer have any school work to worry about, I can finally concentrate on getting this done) and I've just been refining this more and more. I'm now confident enough to post this online, although I'll make more improvements as I get more feedback and get better at working in Flash. If there's anything you think can be done better on this, feel free to let me know.

Thanks to my classmates AJ627, Spencer Bingham, and the Bedfellows new animator Notorious84 for all their advice and help for me.

      No, I don't work for Bedfellows. You can see who's behind the Bedfellows in this journal. http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/4276802/ Kris Patrick needed a new animator back in April and I volunteered, but I was too busy in school to finish my test quick enough, and Notorious84 got the position instead (who, by the way, has animated some really hilarious stuff which you can see here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlTSUqzBhMA). However, I was told that if I did well on it I could be a backup/fill in animator when things got too busy for them.
