This was a little something I started within the testweek, when I gave myself some time every now and then in between all the learning. I started coloring it a week ago, and it was today I had finally the time to scan it properly... sooo, here's a little animation of Tala and Cheveyo (my book chars <3) ^o^ (or you could call them Azura and Brandon, whatever you like right now XD). I wanted to have an cute/funny animation for my 'hug labra' custom part of my profile page, and I came up with this ^-^ My third animation, theehee I still love doing it :3 And guess what?! I colored it traditionally XD Thank you markers for being so good to me to keep almost the same color in the whole process X3 I love my markers... I also love my lightbox which my dad made himself, years and years ago, and which I can now use to make some smooth animations... yea...
Okay, that was it, I need to go on with my HUUUGGGGEEE essay... I don't know how to call it in english, it's an end essay which everyone has to make in the final year of high school >.> you need to spend at least 85 hours on it... and you must research everything -.- sooo... off I go hug me when you have the time on my profile page
Not all subjects stayed still when i shoot macro.... some moved curiously like this beautiful jumping spider while many others ran off at the slightest movement. Taken at night in Singapore.
Quote from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumping_… The jumping spiders, unlike the other families, have faces that are roughly rectangular surfaces perpendicular to their direction of motion. In effect this means that their forward-looking, anterior eyes are on "flat faces", as shown in the photographs. Their eye pattern is the clearest single identifying characteristic. They have eight eyes, as illustrated. Most diagnostic are the front row of four eyes, in which the anterior median pair are more dramatically prominent than any other spider eyes apart from the posterior median eyes of the Deinopidae. There is, however, a radical functional difference between the major (AME) eyes of Salticidae and the major (PME) eyes of the Deinopidae; the large posterior eyes of Deinopidae are adapted mainly to vision in dim light, whereas the large anterior eyes of Salticidae are adapted to detailed, three-dimensional vision for purposes of estimating the range, direction, and nature of potential prey, permitting the spider to direct its attacking leaps with great precision. The anterior lateral eyes, though large, are smaller than the AME and provide a wider forward field of vision.
The rear row of four eyes may be described as strongly bent, or as being rearranged into two rows, with two large posterior lateral eyes furthest back. They serve for lateral vision. The posterior median eyes also have been shifted out laterally, almost as far as the posterior lateral eyes. They are usually much smaller than the posterior lateral eyes and there is doubt about whether they are at all functional in many species.
Jumping spiders range in size from a body length of 1 to 22 mm.
In addition to using their silk for safety lines while jumping, they also build silken "pup tents", where they shelter from bad weather and sleep at night. They molt within these shelters, build and store egg cases within them, and also spend the winter in them.
I'm finally taking the animation class of my Visual Arts degree I was so nervous of taking. It's half semester so we finished trying traditional animations, the rest of the semester will be all 100% computer animation.
This is the first animation I did, and I'll submit the others I've done (they're all animation exercises)... because my account is so dead this will somehow keep it active lol. But I will probably delete this someday, because I hate myself. Animators out there, if you have the time, I totally would love to receive some constructive criticism!
