The final task! – Critical analysis,, Last post until further notice?

(I already wrote this twice before, not sure why WordPress keeps deleting what I write…)

 

OKAY. FOR  THE THIRD TIME. DAMN IT WORDPRESS. Right.

 

The last task was to write a critical self analysis of our work. I finally finished the animation and this is the final task! Hurray! On to the analysing.

Overall my animation worked. In all honesty I feel like a fool for coming up with such a complex idea but I finished it – barely – on time. It was a “brave” attempt but I suppose I need to learn to not “bite off more than I can chew”…  😛

The animation generally fits with theme “state of change” and the topic “flesh to bone” but in reverse. However there were flaws everywhere – and it was noted during class about the issue with the hair volume being inconsistent and perhaps some more in betweens would’ve benefited the short, but with given time restraints I had to give up on being such a perfectionist and corrections.

If I were to do this project again I would most definately NOT use this style or such a complex idea again (talk about increasing the workload x200 @A@) unless I was given more time to work on it, had a higher ability to animate and draw and/ or I was using a programme other than Flash to animate.

…and that is the last task, and probably the last post! I’m not entirely sure if I will use this blog again in the future, since so far it has served me for my uni work. It’s possible I would use it for my own personal stuff instead but I’m more than likely to just make another blog for that – which I will post a link to here for all you lovely, amazing followers and readers who actually read and liked my random ramblings and posts here! Thank you to you all too :’) It was encouraging to see people reading, following and liking my blog! ❤ Stay fabulous! 😀

Hello all! As you noticed I went AWOL for..a little..while…yeah. But hey ho, I’m back now~ And making progress on my animation! (totally not when the last minute panic kicks in shhhhhh 😉 ) I’m using Adobe Flash here, ’cause we have to.
Originally the animation was meant to be double framed, however it didn’t quite work with my idea so after discussing with my tutor I cranked it up to triple frames!
Also while working on it there was something bothering me about it. Why did it feel..not right? I was doing my animation perfectly, and the drawings were fine, so why did it bug me? I mentioned this to my tutor also and came to the conclusion that it was more to do with the content than the execution. 1) The flesh to bone sequence is in reverse – Bone to flesh. Being backwards makes it a bit confusing and 2) the subject is a child, which makes it a little uncomfortable. After establishing this I felt more comfortable working on it and it didn’t bother me anymore. owo Onwards!! *continues to animate*

Remi Reference Painting WIP

Remi Reference Painting WIP

Here’s a screenshot for you! The character who is to be featured in my animation for the “bone to flesh” short for my uni project. He’s called Remi and this is a reference painting, extra developmental and just all round fun painting, current WIP. I wanted to try the lineless painting idea as it would work best for the animation I had in mind. Of course getting this amount of detail in the colouring and drawing may be extremely difficult in Flash but I’ll experiment to see what works best for the animation itself. This is painted in a software called Paint Tool SAI, if you were curious….I love him. *¬*
