Pictures of Baba Toon in the Funky Town

We developed the character, Baba Toon to help us decipher the inner workings of the animation world. Baba Toon is an inspired advocate of animation and its benefits to the world. Like all of our creations, Baba Toon has a life of his own. He likes to wander around the world, picking up wisdom and spirit of the great beyond.
The following are pictures of him as he ventured into the Funky Toon. You can access the WHITEBOARD ANIMATION on YouTube.

Baba Toon is on his way to Funky Town, with his bindle full of ideas. Toon wants to share his vision for the world, with the world. His mission: To showcase the versatility of animation. What better place to start than Funky Town, where everything goes down!

Or have set the industry standards and people should know you’re BOSS!  Need a fun demo to rekindle the yearning for learning in your students.

Character Design: The Thief

Ramsay is  a terrible and terrifying person. He is a thief. He steals shadows. He steals violins. He steals your hope, and your tragedy. He gives you nothing in return. He takes things that doesn’t belong to him. He steals cars and tires. And motors and pulleys. He steals coconuts. And bananas leaves off banana trees. Ramsay is a horrible, horrible person. He has no respect, no self meaning.

What is Character Designing?

They say that a picture tells a thousand words. But then that is just a conservative estimate.

A character is not a static design. It is a dynamic entity. A character is a multi-dimensional figure hiding in the garb of a 2D depiction. It portrays depth, timeline and interaction. A character is a persona. A character has life. A character is his/her/its own story.

A good character design narrates fascinating tales. It depicts attitude, poses, body language and emotions. It relays its existence. It doesn’t just sit there like a slob waiting to be dumped on animation. Animation only gives wings to the flight that is already infused in the character. A good character has a past, a present and a future. Its existence is encoded in its design. A good character design builds an environment. A character doesn’t float in vacuum. It exists with interactive elements. It has a home and a world.

A good character design creates a language. It builds the DNA. It breeds movement. Only then can a character evolve.

Good character design is the backbone of a good media campaign. It is the persona that the company showcases to its potential and existing customers. It is the building block of a company’s identity and its brand. It is the flag bearer of the company’s ethos.

It is paramount in building a good rapport with the audience. It drives credibility and reliability. A good character is multi-dimensional. It transcends both space and time. It speaks for both the company and the customers. A good character is the perfect bridge between the company and the audience. It provokes imagination and takes the audience on a magical journey. It entices, influences and guides.
