Noisy neighbors, a group of teenagers outside right below one’s window, an alarm that won’t turn off — sometimes stress builds up too quickly. Our Kitty couldn’t handle it, but we suggest taking a breath and a break. Kitty, take them more often.
I decided to make a cat character for this story. His ears and tail allowed us to better reveal the emotions at the master shot.

Since the cat’s facial expressions were done in 2D after the 3D animation stage of the body, my task was to show the changing state of the cat only through body language. It was a challenge. On the one hand, everything is as simple as possible, and on the other hand, everything genius is simple. Just the tail alone gave so much expressiveness, not to mention the gorgeous paws and ears.
