Final Illustrations


I am really pleased with how my animation turned out. I feel that it gets the point across well, and is aimed at any age as I think that everyone can appreciate the message which is being put across. I also chose to use a quote to show what the story is about, and then at the end I used Greenpeace again, as it would be used as part of an awareness campaign.


I made a tag to fit around the whale's tail which on one side said 'Greenpeace' and on the other 'Soft toy. Please look after me' I intended for this to be aimed to young children, but aswell as it being a toy it would make them more aware of the whaling issue. Also the comment 'Please look after me' has a double meaning as it could mean the toy but also whales in real life.


I chose to use this image as I feel that it was the most eye catching out of all of the ones I made, and I think that the text read better this way. I put the Greenpeace logo along the bottom as I intended for it to be used as part of an awareness campaign to do with the whaling ban.
