Mighty Coconuts | 3D for 2D

Mighty Coconut’s calling card is high-end 3D animation, but over the years we’ve come to realize that some stories require a different visual style to be properly told. “The Mighty Coconuts” is an original web series produced specifically to develop a method and a pipeline to use our 3D animation tools and techniques to create decidedly 2D content. Much of the charm of this new aesthetic is the result of hand painted textures and backgrounds. We turn to this technique, we now lovingly refer to as 2.5D animation, for projects looking for a more traditional “cartoon” feel.
