This animation I designed as a mash-up satire of the Coen brothers movie, The Big Lebowski, and the video games, Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. The animation was created using Adobe After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop. The characters were designed on paper, and then imported into Illustrator to generate the color versions of the art. After Effects was used to animate the fighters and their "dialogue" with each other, as well as the other motion elements in the piece. Various audio elements from the original properties were used to enhance the authenticity of the piece.
Choose your destiny! Here's a fun mash-up that pays homage to two of my favorite things: video games and the Coen brothers. I decided that the Coen brothers movie, The Big Lebowski, would have made an awesome arcade 2D fighter game. And what better games to emulate than two of the genre's best: Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat.
