This (extremely short!) clip was made with Maya during the summer of '06. It features Captain Pessimist, one of the stars of The Pancake Chronicles, going on a rather succinct voyage.

Clearly this is one of my earlier movies: when working on Robot Vs. Skateboard I was more focused on the animation, but while working on this I spent most of my time working on the modeling and rigging—though Capt. Pessimist doesn't do much in the clip, he's much more flexible than the Robot. A big challenge was also to try and replicate my comics in 3D, as I've only ever drawn Pessimist as a flat character, and this was my first attempt to make him 3-dimensional, wacky proportions and all.
