Take The Bus

Lovely character design on the ants.

Update: By the way, Davide (see comments) is absolutely right, the clip with the penguins is indeed a funny and well designed one, too :) Love the design on the Orca whale:

And last but least, here's the one with the fireflies:

  1. So Funny, but the Penguins one is the best one!

    they are really great!
    Great that you posted this Florian

    (the other posts are also great!)
    I learn alot from you

    I have a little question?
    How do I say this..
    I have a lazy eye, so I see no 3D effects at the cinema and so on
    I have no depth/sight
    but i can do everything, drive a car, put things rights a exept accurate sports
    I'm long-sighted.

    does this mean i could have troubles with drawing/painting?
    but i like to draw and my drawings are good but i tought mayby Florian can tel me more...

    greetz, thanks for your great posts
    and keep following your hart

  3. If you are interested, Anonymous (so curios as a name :D), I can answer to your question.

    I work with drawings and paintings (not at Florian's level, of course) and I also have a problem at the eyes (Keratoconus). Well, it has been not a problem in past years. Now I just use contact lens and everything goes fine.

    I don't know if you like my answer (and my english too), but I hope so.


  4. thnx for the info
    I really likes your answer and your english is great!

  5. the firefly one was horrible,lol. like in funny and slightly tragic. i think that was my favorite one. visually, i loved the ants.

    I like the ants best.
    And to Anonymous: Even if some problems with drawing show up, simply try to live your dream. I think it will be worth it. :)
