Cat Rap Process Updates 2-4

Here are the next few iterations of the Cat-Rap animation for Experimental class. I animated/rotoscoped more or less straight-ahead - over video reference my friend shot of me - on 1's in Flash, slapping on tails at the end. For my second pass: I dropped the opacity of the first pass, cut out the video, animated on 2's - paying more careful attention to a somewhat consistent "cat" shape. The third chunk involved a push into After Effects with lots of effects added, including keying out blacks and instead pushing in colors and smears. I think the next step is to get a white color fill into the cat.
