Before starting fanart month last October I thought if it went well I'd like to try doing the same with other things I'm into such as animation, 3D illustration, writing, etc. Since fanart month went pretty well and it also helped me improve a lot, it's time to start Animation month! It gets a bit tough to practice regularly when I got commercial work to do so this should be a fun way to practice animation regularly. Let's do this!!!
[A few hours later] Got some good rest and had a good breakfast, so this went really smoothly. I really enjoyed making this one, and also I realised what took me 3-4 hours at the beginning of this month, now takes me half the time! That's such a cool thing to realise, it always feels good to find that practice is paying off. NOW I WANT SOME BUBBLE TEA :o
Also remember kids, get some rest and you'll be able to work faster and in a better mood too!
really tired tonight, will post this animation after I get some rest = w =
[20/01/2016] There you go, after some good sleep I finished the animation for today :D It's simple but it was fun to do. I do like how the overall look came out, found out some neat techniques on AE so after animation month is over it'll come in handy for more better animation projects that I can take more time with. But you know, that's what animation month is all about yeah! Not nitpicking on stuff and just making em animations happen, no matter how small, how imperfect or how simple.
I'm so tired, been workin all day so gonna get some sleep and make some animations after I'm well rested and stuff. Later!
So in the vein of yesterday's animation, here's a little animation of a neko ice cream soft serve cone :B WHY DOESN'T THIS BRAND EXIST XDD
Also soft serve ice creams have this amazing shape, which in my rush I wasn't able to add to this, but I'm gonna have to study the shape pattern so I can paint/model em better next time.
Made a little logo as well! Oh and this marks the return of 3D, man been almost a year since I used Maya but hell did I miss it or what. Anyways, looking forward to making more stuff in 3D. o(>ω<)o This took quite a while though, around 6 hours or so since much of it was spent tweaking and er re rendering things. Such is called being rusty.
[two hours later] DUUDE I made three animations in a day, AND revamped my old portfolio too. WHAT IS THIS MIRACLE. Anyways, enjoy ze dericious burger..while I go get some sleep (－ω－) zzZ
[a few hours later] Look I'm workin on it!! Dayum son I made two animations in the span of a few hours, c'est miracle!
but it'll take me a couple of hours to finish this one and yesterday's animation, so yes, one more place holder :p
[Update 11/01/2016] Little plant-chan would like to say hi!
Oikay, so with this I'm done making up for the past few days!! WOOT...now to make today's one haha. oh god (￣A￣;)
Oh yeah I also realised, I've been doin this for a whole week. And more! Weeehooo
Yep, I'm just swamped with work rn..but I'm gonna try and marathon and get two animations done by today ; ^ ;
[Update 11/01/2016] LOL if I knew Pachi's tail isn't that bouncy..I prolly woulda stuck to another Pokemon for this. I only found out when I was frustrated with how the tail animation was coming out and went to see how they handled animating it's tail..only to see, it's fairly stiff. But hey it was good practice. FUCKIN HELL this wave motion shIT Is fruSTRATINg. BUT THAT JUST MAKES THE FLAMES BURN STRONGER!!! GOnna master thiS DAmn THING i tell ya!! (╯°益°)╯彡┻━┻
Aaaa I'm behind again but dammit irl stuff -__-
Will post new animations after some sleep!
[11/01/16] I finished this yesterday but the power kept going and I also didn't have internet all day, so didn't get around to posting. Did some final tweaks and here it is! This was a fun experiment, though I'm still really annoyed by gifs lmao...I NEED TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE MY FILE SIZES SMALLER...ugh tumblr and it's 1mb gif limit :/
Now to make two more today to catch up T^T wish me luck lolol
I'm working on today's animation, but I need to get some commercial work done..so this will have to wait a bit e__e
[Update 08/01/2016] Yatta! Finished \(^ o ^)/ This was so much fun to do..esp compared to yesterday's painful clean up -_- Took around 3 hours. And with this I'm no longer behind schedule, yay ヽ(>∀<☆)ノ
t̶o̶t̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶ ̶n̶o̶o̶d̶l̶e̶ ̶o̶b̶s̶e̶s̶s̶e̶d̶ (￣﹃￣)(￣﹃￣)(￣﹃￣)
I'm still cleaning up yesterday's animation, so gonna work on today's after that's done. Man having a cold does not help ; ^ ;
[2nd update] Finally cleaned this up, only to realise I messed up the hair while cleaning it up (／ˍ・、) OH WELL atleast I learned a lot? XD ugh this looked way better in the rough stage, man I suck -__-
[update] Aaa I overslept, but here's what I'm making today! It's as classic as it can get, a walk! I'm posting the wip animation so far since it's gonna take a while to finish this ＼(º □ º l|l)/
Ah my brother kept the window open and it's too cold...and I have a cold as well...I'll be working on ze animation for today after a short nap, so here's a little placeholding till then XD
[Update]I always love the sunlight streaming through my window early in the morning or during the afternoon...so wanted to capture that soft warm feeling. ALSO gotta love teh pastels =3= And today's one took around 2 . 5 hours, not that bad I guess.
My daily sleep routine got all jumbled up so I slept all afternoon and evening since I worked all morning today...and lol only now am I being able to work on today's animation. ANYwayS, will update in a couple of hours! Yay for placeholders :p
[Update: DONE! Took like 4 hours me thinks, yeah but tis done :B I like the feel to it, but I messed up with the movement of the hair in places and there wasn't enough time to redo it. Oh well, better next time hopefully!]
So here's a wip of today's animation, struggling with it a bit..but that's the whole point of doing this :D
Will update once I finish the animation and colour it up and such. Hopefully in the next 3 hours or so. I had such a busy day today, was out all day..hence couldn't start earlier.
