I have nothing to show.

I really don't. But I swear that I am working really, really hard. Animation isn't all about glitter and glam people. Give it time. I know you're growing impatient, but please.

Time.

So, this is how far I got in my animation over the weekend. It only shows you what happens before the really cool part...So..you're going to be left, riddled with anxiety. Just what does he do next? It looks like he might say something? I just don't know, but I "need" to know?!

Well, don't worry. Soon enough, my friends, all will be revealed in due time.

New Post

Problem's arisen. I fell into the false sense of security and didn't check my fps. I am now slowly going through it, adding twice as many frames. It was a little too late by the time Prof. said 15 was alright, so now I am ...giving myself more work.. I wanted to post something but uh...well..stuff happens.

So, this is what I've been doing...



yes. This seems to be all I have done over the weekend. Oh, the hours I've slaved on this one image! Time that I'll never get back....

and, I've also gotten a significant amount of work done on my animation. Well, only a quarter of the way done, but I'm feeling pretty hopeful right now.

oh...I see. So you didn't find that image featuring my title to be worth all the hype I was giving it least week? Well, fine. Here.






I know.

I have conquered the BG's!

No, not the band, but YES! The backgrounds for my animation. They are glorious and I would show you but I am now busily animating my character. I will certainly show you next time, when I have the time to convert them all from flash into something manageable. Oh, they are so magnificent....

Not much today

I may not have much to show you today, but I think this deserves a worthy mention.

Well, now that I've got you humming the song all day, today I am going to start drawing up my backgrounds for the story. I'll show them when I have completed them.

So, the first one wasn't good enough, eh?


Well, I revised it then. It should be better. If it isn't, I'm blaming the pain killers.

Tutorial #5 and storyboard

So, here's the lip sync tutorial :

and my storyboards. The title isn't included but I really think I am going to name it "How do you like them apples?" because it seems to fit well. Nothing interesting in how I use the title if you really are all that curious. It'll just appear and then fade into nothingness in the first frame. Nothingness.



After my people reviewed my work, I think I am going to have to fix some parts that aren't clear enough. I'll probably need to have an establishing shot to show the tree full of apples to show that at the very end of the story, there are none left. Also, Max seems to think that there is a gaping void in the top of my characters head as he eats the apple so more to come on that...

Character Sheets and Tutorial #3


So, here they are! Johnny and his trusty sidekick, Hoover. Still mulling over a title, and Hannah helped me out with one of them. "How Do you like Them Apples" seemed to be sufficiently funny so I might go with that.
I decided to draw them and design them in Flash instead of sketching them on paper because I feel I can never really get the same look. I'm pretty new at Flash, and drawing on the cintiq in general, so I'm playing it safe for my first project. I may have more sketches for my Production Book.

This is most likely the loosest I have worked with any style. I think it should be fun, because I have more leeway to make him look as ridiculous as possible, and exaggerate his features and expressions if I want. Joyous.








This one is so glitchy...
