A looping gif is a video that has the same first frame and the last one basically making it all look like it never ends.
The goal of this project was to think of an idea that can loop forever confusing viewers where the end is. Conclusion there is no end. My personal goal includes showing off my Cinema 4d skills and rotoscope in photoshop.
I started by making my storyboard. My idea was to have a dog be happy with his food and start eating it, as soon as food is out he throws a tantrum and then out of nowhere his food is filled up. When designing the Dog I thought of simple shapes like a big circle and just blob arms and legs making the animation easy and bouncy!
After my idea is done, I start modelling the Dog, the food kibble and the bowl in C4D. I use a combination of subdivision surfaces for his mouth to stick perfectly to his head. The mouth was modelled with a capsule and bend deformer features.
Thinking in the style, I tried adding fur to him but I didn’t like the style and I felt a clayish style was fitting.
