Yet another hand-drawn animation, have to admit it was a bit nerve wrecking, but I think that’s just part of the process. More editing ahead.
Drawing by hand is pretty magical, I can’t quite describe it. So for now I’ll just leave the note here for posterior editing.
Yeah, I don’t really have much to say on this one… I kind of just intuitively made this collage with snippets from magazines and tried to make something more or less cohesive. Didn’t really have much time too, just an hour or two tops. It was fun though, would have another go in the future.
So I finally have a hand at light painting, another technique in animation that’s really fun to play around with that reminds us of chalkboards but with an extra flare to it! One of the challenges is coming up with a story that doesn’t require much detail in visual representation. So I decided to go for something simple, but I’m not sure if I managed to get the message across… what do you guys think?
Well, it’s been a long long while. In fact, longer than I would have liked… BUT, I have been doing stuff, which is important to note! I’d like to post more often but I am just way too picky to post everything/anything I do… So without further ado, here’s what I have been up to:
Now, this was an in-between animation I had to do which I have to say was pretty tricky! I had not done anything like it before and it definitely put me a good challenge. I got really pleased with the result and it made me more sure of what I wanted to do from here on onwards! All I wanted was to see was my drawings come to life and now that I have I can say: Animation is magic! =D
I also made an animatic for the end of the semester, I have yet to finish, but I’ll just post this to give an idea of what I am going for and to later show its outcome.
Ideally, I would have liked to have put some sound in this, but I sort of ran out of time and I couldn’t quite fit the music in like I wanted to. But this shall be rectified on the animation itself! That’s it for now, see you next time!
The following animations were done whilst I was studying at Instituto Europeu di Design.
Class exercise, my first attempt at animating.
End of course project in 2010, done using Autodesk Maya, Photoshop and After Effects.
The animation is based on a story which I had written a long time ago back when I was in St. Paul’s. This led towards the realization of expanding and developing this project further onward. Though I can’t say exactly where it is heading, I can say that it will take the form of a much more complex and bigger line of work.
Participated in a workshop which led to PlayMadrid.
