Have yet to render out my Fly Bird animation as i’m having problems with some stretching, it’s strange…but i’ll get it done! I’ll be adding more to this demo as i’m starting up a new lip sync animation and still want to continue with pushing FlyBird. Here’s what I have as of now,
or follow the link and you’ll be redirected to vimeo, enjoy!
Been a long week, i’m sure we can all agree to that. Here is a part of my recent animation that I wanted to share. I’ve also been doing work in other parts but I didn’t want to show some parts done some parts half done, you know? If you have any suggestions on what I can add to spruce it up to a bit don’t hesitate to let me know!
Alright, now we’re getting somewhere. Finally added the ending and the bird in the scene with some other mumbo jumbo. My blocking is pretty much done so i’ll probably start adding the breakdowns this week and then take some shots into spline, maybe take it all in at once..4 weeks left to make this look beautiful. I’m getting a lot more comfortable with uploading a video every week. Almost as if it’s become second nature, do one thing so much you’ll end up finishing the task without thought.
Had a working spree today and got some of my animation sorted out which was nice. Took things back into stepped so it might look a bit different from what you saw in the preview video.
I was this close to not uploading this video on youtube mainly because I ‘wanted to finish the ending’ but who knows how long that will take me. So I reminded to myself about what I wrote in my last animation post, about forcing myself to upload my process videos even if they’re ‘unfinished’. I mean, that is the whole point of a work in process post, right?
My story pitch went well and my teachers were interested in my idea, yay! So what I did was began blocking in some animation, is a bit messy but I did a quick job just to see how it would look overall but tomorrow ill clean up the poses and finalize some shots.
So, from here on out ill be posting more animation stuff which is great! Hopefully i’ll upload a new video of my process work every Monday night or so till the final stages.
I believe it’s important to show my process for animation.. but sometimes it’ll be challenging because there’s always something I want to fix before I upload it. I think, It’s more so that tiny perfectionist side of me coming out to a point where I just don’t end up uploading anything until it’s done.
So cheers to a new project, my final project in fact! 7 more weeks then I begin to look for my internship. And for anybody who was wondering about my robot hand vfx crique, it went really well!
It’s was such a nice relaxing feeling to finish my project and hear I did well. It’s almost as if you were to sprint a marathon, or even prepare for one, and come out on the other end with both your legs still there. That’s the feeling. Right there.
I should really get in the habit of uploading my process animation to my youtube channel..anyway here’s a lip sync animation i’m working on! It’s a whole lot of fun so make sure you check it out. I’ll post more on this later on, there’s lots left to do.
This is a very rough story board I did for my short film pitch. If you don’t remember the story here it is:
A royal guard is on duty at his post. Tourists try to make him move. He is a warrior. Nothing and no one can stir his presence. A child gripping onto a balloon slowly walks by. We only see the top of the child head. The guard stares at the tip of his bayonet afraid it will pop in his face. His fear is shown with his weary eyes. Sweat drips down his face. He stares at the balloon like it’s the end of the world. The child finally makes his way. Relief is shown through a sigh. Right when the balloon is off screen a balloon vendor, also only seeing the top of the head, creeps on screen holding a dozen balloons. It’s all over. The balloons all pop in his face. Camera cuts to a shot of his hat go up in the sky. Credits roll as the hat falls off screen.
Although my story didn’t get selected I’m very happy to be working with Kartik’s story in our group of 5. Here’s a link to the wordpress La Petite Danseuse. Every member has access to the site so we’ll all be updating until the end. Make sure you check it out before you tune out!
