An Opportunity on Mars

Below are a series of animated gifs I produced for a project reflective of the use of animated gifs used throughout social media.

"Oppy Comic Finals" 

REFLECTION

Before this project I decided I wanted to do an editorial piece based on the little lost rover from an article by New Science magazine, and like most of my projects I decided to make oppy into a fully designed and realised character. But afterwrds I felt it would be a wasted opportunity not to make a story with this now humanised character.

This story revolves around the Mars Rover, Opportunity as it traverses and explores the Mars atmosphere collecting rocks and making a home for herself.

Below is the full comic and text, roughs and finals.
