first pass of witch animation

As the title says this is the first rough pass of my witch animation. You can see her if you scroll down a couple posts. Going to try and post this in stages so my dad can see the process.

Rocker Kids

The current line up of my new band. They were originally intended to be purely flash characters, but I'm enjoying them so much that I may animate them the old fashioned way. The blond boy at the end will be seen half the time with his hood on and half of it off. No names for the characters yet. Each character's personality is starting to develop nicely. Left to right: singer is the most aggressive (14 yrs), guitarist is bubbly, overtly happy, easily distracted (12 yrs), bassist is crazy, up for anything and erratic (15 yrs), and last is the drummer who is the shy quiet voice of reason (14 yrs).

p.s. There's been a slight change to the bassist hair color making it a more vibrant orange.

My coworker came up with the idea of turning the rocker kids into a band, and the idea took hold quickly. Here is the rough line up of these characters. Instruments for each from left to right. Guitar, bass, drums, and singer.

Here's some random sketches of them to go with it.

Just a quick post to show the character I'm getting ready to animate. Still need to make her broom, wand, and black cat.
