This is one of the animation assignments I had for my Animation Production class, taught by none other than Gary Goldman. (of Don Bluth Studios, squeeeee!) 'Tis Dirk the Daring, from the Dragon's Lair video game. We were given six drawings of the original animation, and we had to animate using them. We also given exactly 96 frames to complete the sword draw and swing.
Honestly, I can't put into words how much I learned from these assignments and those classes as a whole. The simplicity of the animation assignment can't properly convey it. :3
Calling the Israeli regime as one of apartheid is not rhetoric, nor is it an exaggeration or a propaganda tool. This is the reality in modern day Palestine, where the Israeli regime is based on discrimination, through laws, practices, education and most aspects of life.
This apartheid regime not only imposed on the people in Palestine, but also on millions of Palestinian refugees denied their right to return home because they are of the wrong religion.
As awareness across the world continues to increase regarding the Israeli Apartheid regime in Palestine, each effort in this aspect would help accelerate the conclusion of this shameful page in history.
And as this awareness rises, campaigns to boycott, divest and sanction this regime provide a very effective and natural response.
The world witnesses a similar response transpire and bear fruit in the case of South Africa, and there are very good reasons to believe that it will do the same in the case of Palestine.
So you think You know all about good old Santa? Think again!!!
The truth will be revealed, now it’s time for Santaman! The whole world claims to know him, but only few people have actually ever seen him – and even fewer would admit this! It turns out the time-honoured gentleman with his big bushy beard is actually a punchy superhero – talk about “Silent Night”! Under the red hood we find a grim patron saint, who takes on the baddies of this world.
About a year ago I began a personal exploration of creativity in all its varied and wonderful forms. PORTFOLIO is the "video distillation" of that look into what, and how, people create.
Having been a stock artist here at dA for some time, I've been fortunate enough to collaborate with folks who are arguably some of the most creative and talented people on the planet. People who excel not only in every traditional style and medium, but who are smack in the midst of creating whole new forms of expression.
