Spring 09, 3D Animation 2 , 2D Animatic

Yay! More content!

And content makes me happy.

It took me about 10 hours spread over 3 weeks to finish. I dad a Digital Video class running at the same time as my 3D Animation 2 class (which kicked my butt), so whatever.

I originally did the animatic in Flash, but re-worked it in Adobe After Effects to get a better handle on the program. Also, I believe the music is a bit different. The second track is still from The Pillows, but I changed it for times sake in the 3D Animation.

Any other comments or concerns, (like adding charred feathers at the end, and more dynamic framing at the battle sequence) feel free to add.

Let me know I'm loved.

Spring 09, 3D Animation 2 Project

Ok! So I just now uploaded my final project to YouTube. I needed a spot for it to be seen online.

Sweet petunias! IT WORKS!
So now I'm in a good mood.

There's a ton on it that needs to be reworked. Like including depth-map shadows, my blend shape facial expressions, and keeping it closer to the original 2D animatic that was sooo much better. To give you an idea, compare 50 seconds to 2 minutes.


Anyways, even though class is over, I'm still working on this little endeavor. Fixing the facial expressions for both characters and generally keeping it closer to the 2D animatic which I'll post here soon.

Any other questions or comments about the project (like the lighting; the seams you see on the characters; and the music volume difference) feel free to post.

Neccessity is the Mother of Invention

Yeah, I never knew a concept could have a mom either.
That'll teach us.
But it's true. I invented a blog because I needed it.

Gotta have a home for all my little imaginary creations, or just creations in general.
3D shorts, concept art, comic pages, that usual stuff.
It'll be a little messy, but that's the point of a blog, and rooms.

Oh, I can put rants here too! The possibilities are endless....kinda.
