I was only an animator on the film “Onward” for a short time, so I only worked on once sequence and I didn’t get a full animation credit. Nevertheless, this was a fun, albeit challenging chunk to work on. It took me quite a few tries to find the right balance of confidence and awkwardness for Barley’s ill-fated encounter. I think I tried 6 different versions of the “your ancestors” line. My first take on the sprites was much more naturalistic and feminine (yes, that’s a female sprite!). Director Dan Scanlon wanted something more broad and cartoony, so I threw out all my research and just went for funny poses! You can see some of my planning thumbnails here:
