I was excited going into this project, because I had just recently worked in After Effects and I wanted to try something different. I love puns and wordplay so I thought, maybe I should make a monkey eating a banana! That was boring by itself. Aha! A Banana split! That will work great! So I drew out the basic sketch and what I wanted to do with it. And How I wanted each part to move. I was excited going in.
I knew that I had to make the vectors as good as possible because previous experiences with After Effects made me slightly paranoid about making sure that it was as perfect as I could make it. Going into After Effects I was quite content with the vector. I would change a few things later on to make it work together a little better. But I was happy with it.
Here is where my vector ended up when I got the final part of the animating. You can see some minor changes like the shading on the spoon. And little things here and there.
