Rock Marí | Opening Credits

My illustrations all over Mexico City!!! :)
This is the opening credits animation for the Mexican feature movie Rock Marí. I was commissioned by the team of Maribel Martinez in Mexico to collaborate in the creation of diverse illustrations compelling the personality of this little musician girl (Rock Marí) who likes to travel and wants to be a rock-star. They had these aerial scenes of Mexico City and the idea was to populate all kind of "girly" illustrations giving life to the buildings during the initial credits. The work was done in a super short time, last minute job! At the end everything turned out good.

Thanks to Gabriela Badillo, Diego Huacuja and some other animators (I don't have all the credits) who made the great 2D/3D compositing, animation and motion tracking work on this piece.

Here are the illustrations I provided and the final animation!
