Winner: Carlos Alonso

The winner of the Incognito 5-second project is Carolos Alonso. Here’s his winning submission.

Carlos is relatively new to animation and motion design, and he offered the following insight to our readers. Here’s what he told us.

Greyscalegorilla: Congratulations on your submission. We loved it! Can you offer any insight into how you came up with this idea? 

Carlos Alonso: First of all thank you for selecting me as a winner, and thanks for all the resources and inspiration you provide on your website. I am learning a lot from your tutorials and podcasts!

When I started thinking about the topic in my head, I came up with cute animals hidden among vegetables with a cartoony look. I couldn’t reach the proper look, but days later while talking with a friend, I came up with the idea of a fox hidden, waiting for some rabbits to hunt.

I don’t have a very deep knowledge of Sketch and Toon in C4D, so I looked for cartoony tutorials from eyedesyn [EJ Hassenfratz] and went for it. I was looking for a noisy 2D look. When compositing in After Effects, I put some noise on it, and I think that is all.

GSG: Easy enough! The results are great. Where can our readers see more of your work?

CA: Sadly I have no website or social media to show. I work in a company doing tasks from camera operator to motion designer, but I dream to become a full part motion designer.
