    Scribble version 2

    This was the hyperreal style I went for previously, for all the characters. I had intended to do the film in 3D CGI. After feedback, a faux 2D effect has replaced it.

    The movie started out as 2D, then 3D, then a marriage of both.

    Scribble was originally going to have been a cross-dresser, but I’ve toned that down a bit.

What makes Scribble tick?

THE WHIRL OF SCRIBBLE: WE INTERVIEWED SCRIBBLE ON A SHORT BREAK FROM HIS SCHEDULE AT THE XANADU FARM HE RUNS WITH HIS WIFE, AQUA VELVET.

Q: What do you value above all else in life?
A: The respect of Aqua. She inspires me to be a better squirrel. Hey, a normal squirrel would be good, but she likes my oddities. Yes, there’s more than one.

Q: How do your beliefs make life better for yourself and those you care about?
A: Way I see it, being kind is more important than obeying the rules. If I’d managed the Zoo, I’d have fired the committee with all their rules and let the kids stay up a bit
later. They’d also enjoy the music in the evenings and longer playtimes. Mmmm, probably better that Aqua ran it, ey?

I’d add history to the programme – and geo-science, so everyone can better themselves and the stuff they want to. They only knew the Zoo. It was their whole world. And they didn’t even know they could leave. Or how.

So here at Xanadu Farm, everyone can use the library and educate themselves, even if some of the little ones were scared by the human teachers on the screens at first.

Q: What line will you never cross?
A: I’d never be cruel. I like that about Drak, too. She can sometimes get almost forcefully kind, but better that, than be like Sheena, you know? Then again, Drak MADE our Sheena the way she was. But maybe she didn’t mean it. I won’t ask, hehehe.

Q: What are you most ashamed of?
A: Ah, causing trouble between my folks, ey. But Mom’s got together with 3Tooth now, so that’s sorted. He’s kinda cool. And now Dad has joined us here and we’re good. It was a bit weird, but my little girl keeps him in line. Quite funny, that. Otherwise… hmmm… ashamed – the time I took Myrna von den Horn’s chair away when I knew she was going to sit down. But it was funny and she’d been nasty to Aqua. Hey, Aqua laughed. And that’s more important.

Q: What is your biggest source of pride and why?
A: Bringing Aqua to the Mall and starting our farm. Food for everyone and they can eat it in safety from the predators.

Basic walk for Scribble

My one and only perspective walk in 2D.
This is when Scribble has become grossly obese.
