There's this quote, it goes something like "Say yes and figure out how later". That is what Project Foxtrot is. My first adventure into animation, it's nothing spectacular (and honestly it's probably not the best work), but it was a great project to work on and learn from.
The project started as a request from a co-worker to create a fox character that would introduce a new department in a memorable and fun way. In true "Say yes and figure it out later" fashion I said "sure I can make a cartoon fox walk and talk"...all I knew at the time was that Adobe Character Animator existed.
The biggest challenge I had in the beginning was learning how to break apart a character illustration in a way would allow it to be manipulated. I experimented with both Illustrator and Photoshop. I landed on Illustrator as it was easier for me to group the layers correctly.
