A bit of Animation using flash.
Tuesday, 8 March 2011
My animation involving birds is coming along nicely. I forgot how much of a joy animation was. Cant believe some people think drawing very similar images over and over again for days on end is monotonous. HOHO!
It's been months since i last animated and when i did i had the aid of line testers and many people for critique. I don't have either of these things any more so i have to rely on my own judgement.
I've had to go back and learn what ex sheets are and how they work. I dont think i did many ex sheets while i was at uni. Probably the reason to why some of my animation was a bit stinky. The ex sheet makes the animation process a lot more mathematical and less spontaneous but it helps the animation look a lot better. (well so i've been told)
Below are keyframes from the first scene. At the minute i'm still just testing things out so the drawings are a little messy.
For whatever reason my images have been posted in reverse order.

I haven't posted in a few days. I'm currently trying to work out some new projects for myself and find ways of doing them quicker and cheaper. So far i've storyboarded out 2 ideas 1 of which will soon be pulled into an animatic. In the meantime though you can check out this picture of a bird i did.
