Shot27

Just a little clip of the dancing. :)

And can I just say that this compressed it really badly. It looks a lot better.

Almost There

Nearly there!

Sadly, I am at the point where everything I've done makes me want to poke my eyes out with my pencil, so I won't be updating with any animation until it's finished. I just wanted to update this blog to say that it's almost done.

Hurrah!

Nowhere

Animating and animating and getting NOWHERE.
UGH.
So annoying.

WIP Shot Again

Another version of this shot, with all the details in there. I think it turned out nice. :) I know that it's hard to see because of the watermark and stuff, sorry.

And now time to animate something else...

WIP

Another WIP shot. I quite like how this shot's going. Especially seeing as it was one that I was a little worried about. But I like the overall movement. Next is hair (my nemesis) and details like stripes, more accurate clothing, faces, etc. I need to fix up the face kick shot as well...maybe later. :P

One Frame at a Time

Well I'm back and I'm animating. Mostly I've been going through shots and fixing hair. Bloody hair. Next time I do one of these things the main character is having short hair. Or maybe she'll be BALD. But, like all animation, it's a good feeling when I get it right...or right enough.

Anyway, I'm not going to be updating the animatic for a while, maybe when I have stuff coloured I'll start updating it again. Most of the shots that are in there at the moment are cleaned up, huzzah!

So in the mean time here is a shot that I'm working on/failing at. I think it looks okay so far, except for the end. There is something very wrong there.

At the End

Well, the year is ending and so is my time in Adelaide. Unless they get busy and ask me back in January. Shannon says he'll go slow so that there's lots of work and they need me. Cheers mate!

Seriously though, this has been great, my first job in the industry and a great trip all round. I met awesome new people, learnt new things and refreshed my motivation for Viola. I'm itching to really work on it again. I brought stuff back with me, but it was mostly clean up and to be honest I wasn't very disciplined with it. But when I return, by thunder! Work shall be done. I'm really keen to wrap it up so that I can send it into festivals and so that I can go out and get more work in the industry. I have until the end of May now to finish up my honours stuff, but I'd like to get it done well before then.

There are many things I'd like to get done actually; I need a website, perhaps a general art blog, new cards (you know, ones that look decent) and an updated demo reel. Gotta get it sorted! I feel as though all my recent posts I spend babbling about what I want to do...I guess because I can't really work on anything solidly just yet. So once I can this blog will stop being all talk and you can actually see things that are done, or on their way to being done.

But having worked a nine to five job for the first time in my life (my previous jobs have been casual jobs with ever changing hours) I feel pretty confident that I can sit myself down and work on my own stuff from nine 'til five. I feel so full of motivation and energy so it bloody well will be done!

I've also enjoyed getting to know everyone at the studio and some people not at the studio. It's been really fantastic and I can't wait to see each and every person again further down the track. The atmosphere that the studio has is really great and the fuller it is the greater the atmosphere. It's been so much fun working with such rad and talented people.

So anyway, this could well be the last post for 2009. Talk to you all again (hah, I love how I write as though this blog has a huge following of legions of fans) in 2010.

Expect great things.

Or, well, you know, completed things.

Lex.
