I'm Alyssa and this is my Vertical Slice 'Play Dead': a 2D animation sequence based off the audio clip of the same name from the film series 'Psych'. The character was designed and the project animated and coloured using Toon Boom Harmony and Adobe Photoshop.

The aim of this project was to develop solid foundational skills in the software Toon Boom Harmony, to learn how to animate an expressive character, improve at the 12 Principles of Animation - especially solid drawing, exaggeration - and learn how to animate a character consistently.

The despite the comedic tone of the dialogue, the character is set in a post apocalyptic world. In order to combine the dark setting and topic with the friendly character and his blasé form of delivery, the art style is simpler and semi-realistic.
