When Gobe is drawing a ruby heart, he is found by Calio in a rush of Love.
When Nick and I made this short, we hadn’t made any personal projects together before. Gobe was a character Nick made for fun - there’s a whole backstory for that little guy. I wanted to do something with him too, so I made Calio. I was just starting to be interested in cloth simulations and she was the first character I simulated cloth onto. I imagined Calio running at him from the distance, and the two embracing.
Looking at it now, I find it very funny that they have no face controls. They cannot move their eyes or faces because I didn’t know how to rig that yet. I hold this short dear to my heart because it was our first together.
