I’ve heard about Over the Garden Wall for a while now, but just recently had the chance to really sit down and watch it. I was immediately in awe of story, animation, and music. It is absolutely amazing – so beautifully done.
I really appreciate the animation in this series – the smooth exaggerated movements really stuck with me. One of my top favorite scenes was the Highway Man song from Chapter 4. The Highway Man’s movements were so crazy and exaggerated; I absolutely loved it.
After going on some Over the Garden Wall info binges, I found the YouTube channel for Nick Cross – the art director for Over the Garden Wall. (If you’re into animation I would definitely follow his channel and blog.) There he actually had the process animation for the Highway Man.
Take a gander:
Here is a clip of the completed scene from the show:
