Goliath – Steve Taylor & the Perfect Foil April 26, 2015

Some things we do for the money, for the happy cabbage, and some we do because of an itch. Jonathan’s long-time collaborator, Steve Taylor approached him to help promote a new record “Goliath,” and the itch immediately became evident. It had been a while since Richter had “fired up” the animation table, and this was the perfect opportunity to draw. A lot. Using his children as motion reference, Jonathan animated walk cycles traditionally, and then painted every frame of each cycle before assembling them all in After Effects.

The rider in the piece was based on the Russian folk character “Koshchey the Deathless,” a sorcerer who rides naked through the wilderness of the Caucus Mountains, shrieking as he goes.
