I've just discovered your work, it's incredible! my mind is blown!
Can i ask, how do you practice? Do you study video footage frame by frame to learn? I'd do anything to be as good as you haha ('^-^)

Thanks! ah Yip I do that if it's a complicated move I'm after. I'd study it and then try practice animating it on my own.
Youtube is great for finding lots of ref for interesting body movements!

for FX, I'd probably recommend reading this book 'Elemental Magic' www.amazon.com/Elemental-Magic…
It's really good at explaining stuff!

have you ever tryied coloring your fx?
jeffreylai's avatar
I should probably give it a go, that'll be next on my to try list!
Actually how do you go about colouring your stuff?
like your 5sec day animation, is that one done straight into Flash?
It looks so polished and nice!
(I hope you don't mind me picking your brain for a little bit, I'd really like to learn how to do more stuff!)

i often just animation the fx using color first, and just animate the silhouette first. then i do a few passes on shadow, high light, different layers of flame color. takes a bit tracking, but its easier than to do it all together.
