I put together a little test to find visual style for 88 and see how she looks animated.. this animation in particular I decided to finish because i had been drawing a model sheet and realized that if I tweened the views i'd have a full 360 animation!
It's a bit wonky in some places, I havent actually done any traditional drawn animation in almost 6 years, OTL I need to get my groove back!
Did Concept Design Academy’s “Cinematic Storyboarding” with Jane Wu this past couple months. It was a really engaging class and I came away with a few good projects to show off. This one was easiest to edit together. The assignment was “there are two people in a waiting room. What happens?”
There’s no sound. It’s just an animatic. Feel free to generate your own sound effects though. Bap, splat, wuff, and yip are good to start with.
My animation degree work. Definitely not my best and I keep noticing mistakes everywhere. I animated this in about four months and in the end I had to hurry a lot... which decreased the quality of the animation. Said four months also included drawing backgrounds and editing. Lots of work. So yes, I'm well aware of the faults in there, characters don't stay in model, animation is stiff, timing completely random and some scenes just look awful and messy. I'll definitely do better next time I animate something. :'D
Also note that even though the main character has a similar design to my original character Lun, the one in the animation is not the same character. They are from different universes and have different personalities and backgrounds. The reason I used the same design was the lack of time and the will to animate something that's fun to draw. "The real" Lun doesn't sound that girly either... :'D
As for the story... interpret it as you wish. I didn't want to explain everything, so whatever happened and why it happened is up to your imagination.
This whole thing was made with Adobe Flash CS5.5/6 Autodesk 3ds Max Paint Tool Sai Adobe After Effects Adobe Premiere Pro Tools
This was my part in a group project in my mix media class. Finished the entire film with my fellow students about two months ago.
Here is the full film, the youtube it is on belongs to one of the students who worked on this film too. www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmgIaZ… The film is about how we all are the same no matter or skin color or nationality.
My friend and I completed this video for the San Francisco indie-rock band LoveLikeFire for their upcoming single "William."
It was done in a month using Flash, Photoshop and After Effects. We drove to San Francisco and took photos of the city to use as bases for the backgrounds. Once we had a shot list written out, we went about making a cut of the timing using the raw photos. After we had finalized the shots we were using, we then cleaned up and recolored the photos in Photoshop. Using the timing video as reference, the characters were animated in Flash over the final backgrounds and exported in layers out to After Effects. Some shots were finished all in After Effects, some all in Flash; it was a very shot-per-shot project, but also a ton of fun to work on.
Be sure to check out LoveLikeFire and their music! They are incredible, and if you are in the CA area they will be playing shows all through January... [link] Their label is Heist or Hit Records... [link]
