Happy Halloween everyone! Today i wanted to have a couple of monsters walk across the screen. i wanted to do one more but i didn't have time. I hope all of you have a fun and safe Halloween. This one took me about an hour.
So i went Climbing last night, and i was inspired to do a climbing animation. It's still rough because i have some work to do. But here it is. Ill go back and clean it up later. Took longer than i thought because i was trying to get movements and weight correct, it took about an hour. I think that are still some things to work on but that can come in another test down the road.
Hey guys, so i had a pretty crazy weekend. sorry for the lack of posting. and yesterday i was exhausted and busy with work so i didn't get a chance to do an animation. I danced danced and danced all weekend. 2 weddings!! I'd like to say congrats again to Becky and Nick, as well as to Jose and Maricela!! Super fun weddings, and it was great to see everyone again! I was inspired by the weekend and i'm still dancing.
It's friday!! Just using the same character from yesterday to show some enjoyment that it's the last day of the week and i get to go home this weekend and see everyone!! pretty excited!! this one took about 45 minutes. Thanks for checking it out!!
Here is another character of mine. He usually accompanies my other character. here he is, and i just wanted to show a little bit of personality and test him out. I haven't animated him yet, so this first time is alright. still searching for some movements and personality traits, but this is what i have for today. this took about an hour in total.
Working more with my character trying to show some pep with this walk cycle. speed is increasing everyday. I'm not a big fan of walk cycles but i thought i'd do this to try and get some personality with her. this one took about 35 minutes total. i maybe could have taken a little more time to work on some more inbetweens. oh well. maybe next time...
Hey Guys, I know that i haven't posted for a couple of days. I've been kind of busy. work was busy yesterday, but here is a test of a character that i'm planning on using for a 2d shot later on. working on some movement stuff. I'm getting faster for sure. This one only took about 40 minutes with rough and clean up. i'm pleased with my progress!!
Good afternoon on a great saturday!! Pokemon week is over... but i guess technically it's still the same week... i'm moving on to new things. working on more spontaneous tests and concentrating on new things. I actually animated a lot of different things today but i didn't like any of them, so i deleted them and did this test. it's saturday!! go party tonight!! BUT NO TWERKING!!
More pokemon this week! I experimented with doing fire and concentrated on weight and overlap. I don't know if i'm satisfied, i think that i need to study fire more. this one took about 1.5 hours. i had fun though. Happy Friday everyone!!
Another late post! Busy at work today, but here is one that i'm pretty satisfied with. just a quick test playing with some effects. played with some timing. I'm no master at effects, but i kind of like it. this took about 35 minutes. pretty simple stuff.
So Today is a late post because i've had a lot of work to do. I thought that i'd simplify things today because i felt like i was getting a little too fancy. Just doing a Flying cycle with Pidgeotto. today i focused more on weight in the wings because i imagine pidgeotto to be a bigger animal. this one took about an hour.
Tried something different in the way that i clean up today.... didn't work as well as i wanted it to... I'll have to rethink a strategy if i want to do my animation this way again. not too much time to work on this today either. the colors are kind of weird on here too.... oh well
Hey Guys! Happy Columbus Day!! So i got pokemon over the weekend and I am certainly addicted again. and today being columbus day i thought it'd be interesting to think about what kind of pokemon columbus would have. I think he'd have a water pokemon, but honestly not a squirtle.... probably something more scary looking like a tentacruel or something.. but i did a squirtle in my animation.
I just got the blogger app on my phone!! So now if can post sketches that I do on the go!! I've been drawing a lot lately and having a lot of fun!! It's so nice to draw for fun. School stressed me out so I didn't draw as much but now that I'm out of school I find myself doing more artwork than ever lately. It's really interesting to me but invigorating. Here are some sketches that I've done while on summer and in la.
So i've noticed that all week i was doing action animation, so i thought i'd continue the trend. I thought that i'd try out some boxing. this one was a lot of fun. It took me about an hour and a half. Weird thing, the vector points add a really cool effect!!
In honor of woman crush wednesdays or #WCW to you hashtag warriors out there, i thought that i'd do this animation today. A little play on words. this one took me longer today... about 2 hours. took me a while to figure out how to do this one.
So today i actually gained some speed. I thought that this test would be a lot harder, but turns out yesterdays test was a bit more challenging. But i'd like to think that i'm just getting better. I'm sure a lot of you recognize which character this is. I just thought it'd be fun to animate some sort of attack.
Here is day 2 of my speed animations. Today was a bit tough. I had something else planned but then switched it to this. some jiggle here and there but overall i'm ok with this. just trying to keep it up.
So i was thinking on my way to work about speed painting, and i wanted to start doing speed animations to brush up on my skills. here is my first one. I don't know why there are vector points on some frames... only happened when i exported it... guess i'll have to figure that out, i'm still getting used to animating traditionally in flash.
