I got distracted by the internet today. I did make this as a result of the distraction, although, t’was not the original reason I got on the computer. Sometimes I go on the Adobe Twitch to motivate me to work. Instead of animating, I saw that Syd was doing digital plein painting, so I joined in at the last hour or so to create these two scenes. Was a fun idea and quick project. I’ve never thought of going through Google Earth and finding awesome places to draw from. So, new pass time activity.
Update on other projects, still really behind on the camping video. I also need to “eat the frog” and finish animating for bootcamp. I have a new desk setup with a large monitor which helps with animation and video editing. So much nicer to animate with a lot of screen real estate. I don’t know why I didn’t move my monitor up to my room sooner. It’s so nice! The camping video is taking awhile due to lack of a tripod. Takes longer to find good footage. I’m gonna stop complaining about my lack of progress and go work on something.
Hope you all made something today! ‘Cause at least you’re making something, which is better than nothing.
So…I technically did 5/30 days of motion, but honestly it’s so lame I’m not deeming it worthy of the title of day five. I’m super tired so I’m going to bed and plan to regroup for a weekend double up of gifs for tomorrow. I’m all for consistency in posting every day, but I do hold myself to a certain expectation, and this is not meeting it. If I wasn’t so tired I’d probably stay up and continue working on something worthy of calling day 5, but alas I am. So I give you Animation Inspiration instead.

Cute quick piece. I love the lettering and watching the fire.

It’s like Pacman…but not….can you tell I’m tired? I’ve run out of descriptions. It’s cute.
