“Scarecrow Stroll” is a short 2D animation showing a scarecrow leaving his cornfield and walking through a neighborhood on Halloween night. I made this animation to celebrate Halloween in a lighthearted way, while also experimenting with parallax to convey depth to the environments. I spent much time working on the walk cycle for the Scarecrow, wanting the character to appear whimsical, but also flimsy.
To experiment with parallax on environment animations. To create a walk cycle for a character that loops and can be used in different scenes.
