Here are all the elements that made up the first scene in the titles. All the ones that were hand drawn, that is. The ship was animated separately in Flash and then tracked in. The clean up (or, in this case, mess up) was done by the delightful Justine Waldie, Assistant animator supreme and Queen of the wobbly line. By the way, the last bit is not the final composition, it's just my comp with everything in it's proper place.

The garish colours were necessary to allow the compositors to colour key on any specific hue and pull a matte from it, should it be required. Usually we just used a specific blend mode, like "overlay" or "soft light", to effect the paper-tone ever so slightly.
