Animatics Galore!

Well then! Here are those animatics I was talking about forever ago!

The prompt for this guy was about Maimou and Adellus the monkey and the dolphin. It's a tale from Greece and we had to basically just compose it into visual storytelling. My first attempt at storyboarding and animatics!

This one was given the prompt, annoying frog with a musical instrument...SPOILER ALERT... dodging a tomato! Here's my take on it.

So these were my first two boards/animatics, I'll post the ones that I've been working on more recently a little later. They still have some tweaks ;)

(cough, cough, not like these don't!)

Animation Yo!

Hello everyone! I have neglected my blog once more!

Lots of work but not on many projects... They've all seem to be lengthy assignments so far for school, and mainly video projects. I've been holding off on uploading them to vimeo (first off, I had to make a vimeo) because once a project is completed and you've gotten feedback, there's almost always a chance to make revisions...

Meaning: it's never done!


I've got to get out the that habit of not showing my work because, in theory, it's never going to be done. So without any further adieu, here are a couple projects from my concept and traditional animation class.....

(Also, forgive me, I'll have to put my walks on a cycle later on...Hopefully this loops?)

A lil' bit of digi-painting!

My school work has been my main focus so very little personal stuff is made!

I've been making my storyboards for the same dolphin and monkey story, working on a pantomime/primitive theatre (same idea) project for my animation classes and doing some random elective homework (I will eventually get some of that animation up on here as soon as I get to it, along with the boards...might as well show that I'm doing something)! That's been my life so far, back in the swing of things and you know what? I really like it. It's kickin' my butt though, but in a very good way. 

Anyways, enough of my life story... This is something I did tonight, at 2:00 am waiting for a computer in the notorious 24 hr. labs at school. Whats the use of giving computers that are open at all times, when they aren't open when you need 'em? Anywho, it's the product of my wait and is a little janky but it was fun. Experimenting, yaaaaaaaaay!

Must have saved a weird file of it, it had some cool shadows going behind her head and chair from the light... Maybe I'll post another one later, ha but then I'll feel obligated to fix it...

As always, I'll try to get some more stuff up here later with cool things. Enjoy!
