"If you cannot bend the water slowly and gently, you will not be able to bend the water sharply and quickly."
----- Finally finished rendering the rest of this clip of a waterbending test.
To those who aren't aware, Avatar: The Last Airbender has some pretty cool inspirations from the traditional Chinese martial arts, while watching an episode, I recognised some of the forms/postures they did in waterbending, which take their motions from Tai Chi (namely the Single Whip/Water Whip).
So it sparked my interest in trying to composite some effects into live footage. As a first quick n' lil test in effects within live footage (on a whim too), despite missing things like some tweaks, I'm pretty satisfied how it turned out.
And yus that's me doing the waterbending here, as an animator I feel I need to not only know animation, but also feel it sometimes. Some call it acting
Had fun, nevertheless. Hope ya enjoy. Take care, be safe TN
this is a demo for a tv spot for Honduras, about a bizzare hero of tomato sauce [link] I try to use the old comic print texture as an interesting graphic resource... I'm working on the final tv spot... hope U like it
Final part of our Ski Free 2 series of cutscenes Best all-nighter ever. I now sympathize greatly with ~Fiend-Factory, editing after no sleep is terrible @_@ Since he had a mega math final I had to do the editing this time, not without the help of everyone elses' sleeplessness.
Another animation for my class. It got me a little more familiar with the running cycles, but I still need tons of practise. While doing this project, I realized that I wasn't ready to animate yet. There are so many things that I don't know about animation, about movement, anatomy of the animals, landscapes, camera angles, etc. . .I couldn't have done it without the referance and I felt that I needed guidance and advise.
