experimental done!

well, it's over, thankgod. one assignment finally out of the way haha. I had a lot of fun though, and when working straight ahead with cutouts, with no practice, I'm pretty happy with it, especially the swinging part at the end, the timing just seemed to work well. and I managed to include smear frames, win! here are some screencaps
hmm, things I learnt, don't eat the lollies when you've been animating them for hours on a rostrum table that has been used by several people before you

make sure you check the animation constantly, cos it aint easy to go back and fix it up

colour palette

here it is John, enjoy :P

just the major colours, so I could have reference when doing the other rooms

a much better house

yeah, was not happy with the original house. SO i redid it, the composition is SOOOO much better now. i'm still not overall happy with it, I feel like it needs more detail, but then the style wouldnt fit with the rest of the film, so I decided to leave it

yay for perspective!

alrighty, fixed the perspective and made it look SOOO MUCH BETTER!!!!

haunted house...again

so what, I'm a friggin perfectionist, I wouldnt finish until I was content, plus, got a little advice from Alexis, and made some changes. I'm a LOT happier now, the roof looks ten times better, and the added depth to the grass adds so much.
I also did another one, of the room, with our ghost character, He looks a lot neater than normal, cos I used the pen tool :D

It was really hard picking the colours. Cos the idea is that he's a teenage boy character, but the house is haunted, but i wanted it to look not too creepy, so I kinda settled on the same purple and red combination, which seemed to work for the exterior of the house. And I think it turned out alright. I might still edit it, but I'm fairly content with it at the moment

Ghost and Dog poses

here are the movement sheets for the ghost and the dog, and yes, the puppy does turn into a big dog, you dont really get his size from the sheet, but basically, he's huge!

Haunted house fixed up

Ok, edited a few things to give it a more polished look

a bit disappointing that I spent all day working on this and it's only in the scene for about 2 seconds...might have to use it for a bit longer, haha

Haunted House

This is my first background :D

A few turnarounds

development la di da - with additions from neil and matt

Yeah, I've been sketching away for my major project, I've gone through some pretty dramatic character changes, with a lot of input from John, Alexis, Matt and Neil. And all I can really say is "Pimps and Hoes"
here are some bits of my sketchbook

Experimental - change of mind

yeah, I did it again, I changed my mind.

I'm keeping the silouette idea, but instead, using that for my major project, which I'm super excited about

anyway, my idea for experimental is to take a leaf out of PES's book, and animate candy. I thought 'Lollipop' by Mika would be good song.

basic inspiration for this
