animation progress update

jjjotfv

Yep, i’m working hard on Pearl, vs. A Can. if you notice the production schedule, i’ve been mostly keeping on top of it, excepting when i needed to prioritize other pieces to make a miniature portfolio for last week. I’m up to date now, though i needed to edit the schedule, because we actually have one less week than the academic calendar would have suggested.

Still, the last bits of work shouldn’t be too demanding for this timeframe. I’m very glad that January Patrick chose this project for its shorter length, compared to the decisions made by September Patrick for the Fall semester.

I’m getting to be pretty proud of this piece as it comes together, too. Whereas the average scene of the Eleventh Angel Project didn’t have much ” ” ” animation ” ” ” (so to speak, there were a lot of shots of static imagery given motion tweens), Pearl, vs. A Can has frame-by-frame animation in every shot. Also it has much hands!!

In my last post, I said i would add previews of the animation ‘tomorrow.’ So just imagine my calendar goes April 19th -> April 20th -> May 2nd. Like there’s one really long 264-hour day in place of April 21st-May 2nd, one day with eleven sunrises and sundowns.

update on various works

You might have noticed today i posted six ‘inspiration’ posts. today was the day i needed to catch up with that part of the course rubric, filling in for each week of class that i didn’t post a reference work earlier in the semester.

Here’s what’s going on with me though: production of my Pearl short is coming along, though a little behind schedule (<- I update this page whenever i make progress on it though). this is because i needed to take some time to go back over some old works and get some files together which my professor is going to send to some professionals for critique–which is quite exciting!

One of the things i want to include is my little head-turn animation of Lapis. So i’ve nearly finished that:

preview 2

this is after taking my prof’s criticisms into mind. i made distinct the locks of hair in the front and the hair on the sides of the head, such that they lie up against one another when she’s not moving, but separate during a motion. She still needs a mouth, though.

I can post some updates tomorrow showing each shot as i’ve been working on them in the Pearl VS. a Can short, as i haven’t shown off any work from that in a long while.
