Chipmunk - An Animation Test For Cartoon Series Idea


This is a cartoon short that I made a while back. I had this animated series idea that I was kicking around about a monster that lived in a house that was haunted by humans.
I never really finished writing the story itself.

One day I was in my kitchen and I kept hearing this chirping noise. I looked out the window and the chirping noise was actually this chipmunk right outside the window eating an acorn. I had my digital recorder with me and I recorded the sound.

I decided I would animate the sound I recorded just to do kind of a mood for what the character and the look of the cartoon would be like. The whole thing took just a few hours. But this is all I've ever really done with the idea.

I've always wanted to try and finish the story.

When you find a drawing you don't remember doing

I don't remember drawing this picture A Google Photos drawing surprise I set up all the drawing apps I use on my phone and tablet to automatically back up what I create to  Google Photos .  The main reason is to save it of course. But the other reason I back up my drawings to Google Photos is that it has a memory feature . I get an alert each day where it tells me I have photo memories that I can look at.
