Summer project: first steps of modeling my character

I started modeling my characters, so I would have enough time to complete my animation.

@Phil: if you are seeing this post, can you please look at the one below and help me with the story?

@Phil: myth and my idea for the animation

I did posted my idea and myth before, so I am reposing everything again. Basically I want to make a Mayan myth into really short, however quite funny, cute story. So here is the myth and my idea what I want to do for my animation. I quite felt that something is missing and not really clear in animatic, what I am willing to change. but so far can you please help me to sort out what is missing so I can jump into other stages of making it. Thank you!

In Mayan myths the lost content of MU is the island where white and black people lived as equal, in other words it was motherland of Men.. However they slowly become more selfish from the point that they forgot their own Gods. That makes Gods really angry on the race of people. After a horrible day and night the island where flooded and drown in the Pacific Ocean. It was believed by Mayan people, that it later on divided into 10 pieces which created lands on the earth. And the myth says that there were survivors of this disaster.

One Mayan (Ekahau) is sleeping under the palm tree.

Another Mayan (Ci Bolon Tum) comes and tries to wake up Ekahau, because it is a time to pray for Gods. However he does not wake up, it seems he did not even feel that someone tried to wake him.

Ci Bolon Tum tries to wake him up several times again by poking, screaming to his ear. Then Ekahau wakes up and they both going to the praying place.

While Ci Bolon Tum starts praying to God statues, Ekahu instead of praying falls asleep again.

Then Gods go angry on race of people, because they do forget that Gods created them and they are not respectful towards them anymore.

Sky turns dark, storm begins leading into an earthquake… Lava appears from the statues of God mouth and then the misery begins…. However Ekahau is still sleeping.

Ci Bolon Tum, jumps on him trying to wake Ekahau up, then after unsuccessful try, he pulls Ekahau’s leg and starts dragging him.

Both characters disappear from the camera view.

Ground pulls apart because of the earthquake, pyramids starts falling apart.

Then tsunami wave floods the island of MU. Everything comes down and a palm tree appears with both of the characters sitting on it( Ci Bolon Tum is rowing and Ekahau is still sleeping).

Summer project: animatic

I still need to edit couple of shots and music, but here it is my first animatic of the mayan animation. And I still feel it's a bit too fast at some points, so that will be fixed. Also, the duration of animation probably will reach about a minute and a half.
