ANL #1 and ANL #2

Update: Nathan Love has released a second animation in this series, “ANL #2.” Added below.

Nathan Love has released a mysterious — and strangely charming — animation entitled “ANL #1.”

The teaser blends the realism of CG texturing and lighting with the comical exaggeration typically associated with traditional animation. It’s a general trend on the rise, one that I predict will be usurping the current dominance of 2D animation. (More on that during my upcoming Blend talk.)

(Pssst… Although it’s just one vowel short of being the lewd, the title actually contains a hint. Stay tuned to Motionographer for the details.)
