Animation Inspiration 109

Apparently, the painkillers I have for my hip make me super singsongy….because for the last half hour I’ve been narrating myself through singing. It’s super weird, but also doesn’t feel out of the ordinary because of pills.

I drew a shadow study since I’ve been trying to draw people all day and it’s not been working out. I figured I need some shadow practice and a few reference photos. This was helpful in jogging my memory from drawing class freshman year. I haven’t really done many people drawings since then so I’m not surprised I’m having trouble. It happens when you don’t practice. Just do a billion drawings every day for practice.

Animation Inspiration 108

I spent a lot of time working on some lettering. It’s in pencil form for the moment but will be digitally finished off soon. Had one of those days where a lot goes down but not much got finished. Made tons of progress on the lettering and idea phase of a project’s creation. I’m going to turn in for the night so I can get even more done tomorrow, but got some inspiration so we can all hustle!

Don’t Fail Idaho ‘Turning Poing’ | By Buck

Do I really need to explain anything about how awesome this animation is?

Pathway Through Care | By Anchor Point

Love this whole design and animation.

Animation Inspiration 107

Lots to do tomorrow so heading to bed early. Here are some very cool animations to keep you inspired!

A True Story – Carly | By Guille Comin

Love the message for this and the illustration style that supports the narration. I love seeing these because they inspire me to create things, nerdy things specifically!

Disney X D – Gravity Falls ID | By Golden Wolf

Been following Golden Wolf’s Instagram and getting inspired by their animation transitions and 2D style. Love the focus this piece has and transitions of each character’s heads. The simple pattern design in the background is a really great way to make the whole piece work together. Will continue watching more Golden Wolf animations!

Animation Inspiration 105

One of those thinking days today. Got lots to do Monday so here’s some inspiration to get motivate everyone!

Traveling Lights | By we think things

A beautiful piece using negative space and shape layers to create simple moments. Love the designs and reminds me to be mindful of the compositions I create.

Empty Storage 01 | By Peter Steineck

Loving the throwback of pixelization and design style of games. The character is silly and the old style to it is a great fit.

 

Animation Inspiration 103

Spent all day working on a project with a friend. Got back from that and took a nap…basically accomplished no personal projects. -sigh- I think tomorrow will have to be a day of working in coffee shops or something. Working at home is starting to get distracting.

Whitechapel Gallery – Mary Heilmann – Summer Exhibition Teaser | By Emmanuelle Walker

Loving the textures in this piece. Interesting incorporation of movement for the exhibition.

Zubroffka 2016 | By Kijek / Adamski

Shiny lights are shiny. I’m mesmerized by the movement of the lighting in this piece. Great geometric designs.

Animation Inspiration 102

Interview, two pots of tea, and lots of family time. Since I had minimal productive time towards working on the rebrand and animation stuff here’s a link to an awesome video to watch. It’s a longer than the usual animation inspiration so just going to post one tonight.

The Most Gruesome Parasites – NTDs Explained | By Kurzgesagt 

I love these because the combination of animation with education is high quality and delightful. I love learning through art and this is a perfect example of why I love motion graphics.

Animation Inspiration 100 | Creatures

…I was lazy today. Had all day to write that blog post and post it…but youtube videos are just so distractingly fun. Not a productive day. Most of today has been procrastination…hmmm…need to get work done tomorrow as a result!

On the flip side, I did go see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them. Full dress up while falling in love with Newt Scamander and Queenie. All the characters were amazing, especially the animals. Oh my godddddsssss…I want all those animals. Also want a couple short spinoffs of some parts. I’m not going to do any spoilers here, but if you did see it dm me!!!!! I need people to talk with!

In light of being lazy I hunted down some creature themed animation inspiration..and just realized this is my 100th Animation Inspiration post. -celebration-

Sea Creature | By Beat Reichenbach

Love this breakdown. Informative in seeing how the scene was built. I admire the design of the creature and the process of the creation.

Character/Creature Reel 2015 | By Jason Brown

Love the turnarounds of each character and creature of this reel. Fascinating to see all that detail and design work put together. Well sculpted and interesting.

Animation Inspiration 99

‘Allo fam. Was hoping to have my Startup Weekend stuff done today, but I’m still finishing up a lettering post for it. Started it a little late in the day, but if I concentrate and focus all day tomorrow it’ll be up as well as have progress on other projects. Just need to put up blockers of social media and I’ll be fine.

Here’s inspiration again…I really need get more work done.

Preposterous – A Short About Absurdity | By Florent Porta

Love this piece! It’s one of the reasons I love animation. Changing the rules of the world. Absurd moments that can only be created through animation.

SILENCE (extrait) | By Emma Carré

Excellent piece with some interesting sound design. It’s got a good narrative and design. I admire the edits and movement of items like the car as well as character. The illustrations are great with fun line work. Makes me want to edit some of the ideas I had early on this year.
