A short lip sync animation for University with my own designed interpretation of Hyacinth and Richard Bucket from the BBC show "Keeping Up Appearances". The dialogue snippet is from Episode 8 "A Barbeque at Violet's" from Season 5.

Textures are from Creative Commons resources.

This was animated at 12 frames per second, using over 200 drawings all using pen on paper. This is the finished coloured version taking at least a full day to clean-up, (applying colour and texture to the characters in Photoshop and removing the white background) although several colours were omitted to meet deadlines on time. Enjoy! :)

This is beautiful! I love the animation, style and attention to character. You captured their personalities very well. And even more love for Keeping Up Appearances. I grew up with that show. <3

Thank you! Me too, one of the many great British comedies! I love them all <3 Thanks for your comments, I was trying to capture something from their performance and personality that isn't just copying the actors from the show :)

The call box scene (in total) was one of my favorites in the series - it was really the only time Richard told off Hyacinth and she registered real shock by his reaction (though she vindictively bounces back later).

Masterful control over the spacing.

What I love about this is how freehand it looks... I can't animate a fucking thing without thumbnailing it first, but this looks like the characters are moving straight ahead of their own accord.


And yeah, postproduction's a bitch, innit?

Thank you! This was animated straight ahead, funnily enough! I really should thumbnail more though, as I think I ended up trying to put too much physical action into this and should have held the poses more... And yeah, ran out of time to colour this properly! Wish I had that fancy cel software that can just fill in the colours!!

There's a slight Ken Harris coast to the motions that helps it immensely.

There's always MS paint. But I totally sympathize with you on this.
(One idea I'm working on involves the lineart for the background seperate from the background, placed over the characters and selectively digitally erased. It'll poke through every so place and look really trippy if I do it right!)

@00:21This is great! When I heard the audio I was so happy because I love that show. :D

The animation was fantastic too, it really did fit well with voices.

@00:21This is divine. I LOVE this. You have no idea how excited I am to see this. You my friend, are worthy of my first favorite.

This is so legit! And for you to pick the first (only) time Richard asserts himself gives you extra brownie points!
