Updates & Animation Inspiration 71

I forgot to devote Monday’s blog to life updates, so instead I’ll do it tonight.

Here is a link to the gallery of the rest of the photos from the Ogallala, NE trip. I am currently working on a rough cut of the video. I really need a tripod. I have so much stablizing to do to these clips. I estimate I’ll finish the video by next week at this rate. I want to devote time to the edits, but not take away from the other projects I have to work on.

Doing some planning for the project I mentioned last week. I underestimated the amount time I needed just to plan out the idea, let alone the actual production, so I’m going to put that one on the back burner until I get my process down. I hope to make it a weekly or biweekly project. I’m too far behind to launch it this week, so, cross fingers I find enough time to finish it for next Tuesday. I feel bad pushing it another week, but I spent the weekend enjoying the family camping trip.

I am going back through my selfi animation. It got held up do to the chaos of my brain. I started doubting the script, the sketches, and ideas I had. Today I looked through a few sketches I had and I’m not sure why. One of those moments where I had to take a break from it to get a good perspective. Tip: If you find yourself doubting your work try taking a step back. Just take a long break and come back with a fresh head. Especially if you’re working on the project solo, like I am. I have yet to get someone to critique my project, and my inner perfectionist just keeps telling me to remake it and start anew. No need to start over just gotta get past that dip! Also if anyone wants to help with critiques at a later date tweet me @zonaefly. I’m gonna need feedback soon.

Since this post is very text heavy I will end with a little Animation Inspiration. Feels like it’s been awhile since I’ve posted one.

Doodle for Google – Share Your Imagination | By Google

Really cute animation with lots of different styles and animations. The pacing is fun and very bouncy. I tried to convince my school to do Doodle for Google, but couldn’t get my teacher to sign off on it. Too bad would have been really fun to enter. I know I always look forward to the Google Doodles. The creativity of the kids makes watching this video a lot of fun. Great sound design too. Hope it inspires you!

Sketching & Photo Touchup

Not very productive today so no new project launch. Might do a test tomorrow, but I have to prioritize my Character Animation Bootcamp lessons. I worked on a photo touchup of myself from when I was approx 4 or 5. Got that before & after so you can see what I did. Glorious throwback. Also made a little photoshop sketch of a tent since I’m going camping later this week.

Check those out below and come back tomorrow for updates. I hope to continue the tent sketch and test out my animation project idea.

Booktube-A-Thon | Challenge Day 3 | Book Title Slip In

So this is the culmination of just having fun creating something different. I learned a bit more on how to use Audition, although I really don’t have an ear for this kind of stuff so I can’t really say I know how to use it well…but the point is that I learned something new. I also was reminded of how much I love photomanipulations. Been awhile since I’ve done that. All in all good creative day. Have a few more things to work on before bed tonight, but for now celebrating the wins of my day!

Question for you! What did you do today that you’re proud of?

I’m proud of finishing this Challenge Video and still having extra time in the day!

Animation Inspiration 23

Somewhere

I love this. Have I mentioned my love for limited color palette? The line work in this piece is amazing, and a great story about love. -sigh- I loved every second of it and hope you do too.

Gaia TV – Luminas Show Opener

I get tired of the cartoonish animation style sometimes. I still love it, but the flat graphic illustration style like the above one gets over used. It’s nice to see something a little bit different every once in awhile. The show opener below was refreshing to watch after being immersed in the flat graphics for most of my animation inspirations. Makes me want to go play in photoshop. Which I might do later tonight or tomorrow. C:
