A blogroll on our efforts to create an 8 min (OPEN MOVIE) animation short on the absolutely free Animux pipeline.

Luis has come up some preliminary designs for the 3rd and final peacock in the animation. The peacock is an albino peacock. The plan was always to have the Yubiy Casanova to be an albino peacock (a peacock with white feathers and devoid of any color) which is another cliche for white hair shows age and with age comes wisdom.  But we did not want to push the cliche too much. So, right off the blocks, he would not have any other signs of age, but his grey feathers and a few wrinkles on his face. We are still debating on what else we can add to show it.

Yubiy is going to be someone who charismatic, like Sean Connery or Amitabh Bachan. He needs to have this cool confidence about him and because of that the turkey respects him.

Obviously, Luis forgot. This below concept was not what we had in mind.

Here are some of the obvious concept deviations in the in

  • Yubiy has a walking stick.
  • Yubiy appears to be bent over.
  • Tail feathers are up.
  • Nothing Sean Connery or Amitabh Bachan about his look

Luis will be working on another version of the character design and we will post it when we get it. For now this is what Yubiy is NOT.
