the pope's dog

The Pope's Dog was a 2D animated film that I worked on along with about 30 other students for SCAD Animation Studios. We were tasked with creating a film that was in the style of Klaus from Netflix, so a 2D film with a 3D lighting style. 

 

I worked in a smaller team of 6 as part of the primary concept and visual development team, and also helped with designing and rendering the backgrounds of the film.

Floor Designs 

I designed the floors for three of the main parts of the Basilica: the nave, the baldacchino, and the exorcism room. I used Adobe Illustrator to create vector patterns which could be used by the background artists in the final renders.
