Watch the first 3 scenes of my animation/music project

 Check out the first three scenes I made for my animation and music project Animated the first two scenes so far in Blender using grease pencil. The first scene starts out with the character I drew as a see-through pencil sketch on a white background holding his hat up in the air. He's standing next to a payphone and throws his hat aside and makes a call. In the second scene for the animated video here, the song begins and the camera closes in on the pencil sketch man who starts singing the first line of lyrics into the phone. And scene three, the camera zooms in even closer as the pencil sketch man grabs the phone with both hands and starts to use it more as a microphone. (Listen to more music by my band Lorenzo's Music on Spotify ) More scenes to come... I started this song and began animating it and to make that task a little more doable I decided to start animating and releasing them in short segments. Sharing the video as I go instead of waiting to release the whole thing
