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*
Finally finished! Say bonjour to Remi~ My character for my animated short. Obviously he won’t be this detailed and maybe not this style either in the animation (heck, I’d die D: ) but I wanted to experiment this style of painting so why not? +1 for developmental work owo Feedback would help me a lot on this guys!
Here, have another screenshot!! 😀 I love painting eyes but gosh, do they take a while to paint until I’m satisfied. Another WIP of Remi~ 🙂 Well..of his eyes.
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. *¬*
