Computer Graphics is developing rapidly day by day and 3D technology is becoming a more and more important part of art and design. 2D animation has its own beauty that I really appreciate. However, I believe that 3D cartoon characters can be the virtual idols mainly produced in the future. My thesis project is a combination of many kinds of design. The essential one is character design for sure because it is something that all the other kinds of design in this project come from. The motion graphics design and website deisgn are the key part of this project because these two aspects determine this project is successful or not. The charatcers are designed in a way that combines the Hollywood animation style and the Japanese anime style. Motion graphics pieces of this project are designed into very bright and delight ones. The motion graphics animations are done in MAYA and After Effects, while the website is done in FLASH. Thesis Website:
