Personally, I felt that my 'Gonna Get Yer' idea was dead in the water, I struggled to find the momentum that would propel my excitement for it. I have decided to drop the idea and look at something different.
I want to Design a character, or set of characters, that would be for a Saturday morning cartoon show.
I would design the characters and create an (after effects) animated teaser for an upcoming cartoon whilst also adapting the designs to work as quirky, 3D action figure models which would be made in Maya.
I have been looking at western folk tales and one that has stood out to me is 'El Muerto'.
In broad terms, the tale tells of a Mexican outlaw man named 'Vidal' who was killed (beheaded) by Texan Ranger, 'Bigfoot Wallace'. He then strapped the dead body and head to a horse and set it on it's way. This frightened many people. Although the body was thwarted by those brave enough to do so and the horse was put at ease. But some say they still see the ghost of 'El Muerto' riding across the moonlit land.
