Retribution was the result of experimenting with different art styles. Combining cell-shaded characters with a realistic world created a distinctive look for this animated short. Inspired by anime classics such as Akira and Ghost in the Shell, Retribution deals with revenge and sorrow in a distopian city.

Every keyframe counts
To emphasize on the look and feel of the 2 mixed art styles the video was animated at 24 fps while the characters where animated on half the framerate at 12 fps. This meant adding and tweaking a lot of keyframes to match the 2 framerates.
