I have had the honor to cooperate on a TV-commercial for Albert Heijn. Hollands biggest supermarket. The commercial is about the smurfs that you can get for free when you do your shopping at AH. It was my job to design the Harry character, and to paint all of the Backgrounds. I had a lot of fun doing this job, and also I learned a lot about animation, since it was my first animation project. The storyboard was done by the great Daan Jippes and the movie was directed by Hans Buying.
As you can see this is the evolution of the Harry character. I had to navigate between likeness and smurfness...
