Bike ride after dark

By buuteheweun
10 Favourites
A little something I made when I was being inspired by something I saw on the interwebs.

It's basically a looping animation of a motorcycle driving at night. Occasionally a lightpost flashes by as an excuse for some lighting effects, all done by hand of course, frame by frame. The dark background gives a nice contrast and brings the lighting more to life.

EDIT: I've been informed that Internet Explorer 8 with Flash player 10 does not properly display the lightposts. I curse the day Microsoft released this version and am working on a solution as we speak.

EDIT: It's been solved and Internet Explorer has been allowed to live...for now...

damn DA for not having an edit button

I just noticed something. Shouldn't the shadow on the ground be more on the right side of the bike when the lamppost flashes by?

Please don't hate me for noticin' :( :P XD
buuteheweun's avatar
haha, yeah I suppose you're right XD
I did consider stretching it out to match the light source, but I forgot to in the end :O
thanks for pointing that out :)

oh and thanks for congratulating me XD

The amount of detail in this is amazing. I wish I had your skill at properly placing reflections and blur effects. One day.

thanks mate, I'm really flattered :)
but really, with a bit of practice and examples I'm sure you can do it as well :)
