I'm a big fan of the 2D animated show "Rick and Morty" and felt inspired to recreate and animate these crazy charcaters in 3D. The above video is my attempt at a 3D recreation of the first 2 minutes of the Pilot Episode 1. If you are a "Rick and Morty" fan I hope you enjoy my 3D rendition. Your feedback and support is appreciated. den@denbeauvais.com

The first step was to extract the sequential frames from the original 2D animation. Those individual frames were then imported into Maya and overlay-ed on a polygon plain locked to the camera as a rotoscoping reference for animating the dialogue, body motions as well as for the ship turbulence.

This started off as a simple rig test for a Mr. Meeseeks and the little animation evolved as they often do.
