Hey-ho! We have finished the creation of Ilo’s image!
For a long time we tackled this strange cartoon character. The turkey is rather rarely used in cartoons. That’s strange – the possibilities of animation and character are great.
So, here to present you – ILO!
Personal record: A turkey, unschooled and of no fixed abode. Single. Plays cards as God. Even more than corn loves his master Gojo. Tries to be indispensable for him. Coward, but permanently gets into some mess. Bewares of Zara since that incident, when he was almost got stewed. Is partial to his appearance.
In order to create a turkey we ransacked tones of photos, took pictures of turkeys in the country and even… cooked and ate one: the animators asked to look what it has inside.
After the form of turkey was born, we confronted with the question of its color. After a week of search we settled on the colors of a Moldovan carpet (number 5)
The charismatic personality of Ilo has to present a contrast to the calm temper of Gojo.
We see him constantly fussing, and getting in troubles. There are always feathers and cards flaking off him. Almost always he is either scared or nervous.
Feathers – is a big problem for everyone. Those are hard to model and very problematic to animate. They are also hard to render qualitatively and with play of colors.
Watch further the development of Ilo: on the next stages we will come back to him.
