Check out this beautiful film by master animator Frederic Back:
The little animation piece, Little Red Tiki Hood, which I did for the November Challenge at AnimationForum has won 2nd prize! I was awarded one Silver Talent Point to my account at the forum and I can’t wait to get my miniature Iron Giant figurine! :)
Here is the finished piece, there is heaps of stuff I can fix but I am well and truly out of time on this one, it was a great learning experience.
Ok, I have been working really hard on this dancer, it is pretty tricky and there are lots of things I am not happy with but to change them I would basically have to start all over again, so I am going to just finish it the way it is. After all this is just a learning exercise.
Everything is animated except the turns, the contest closes tomorrow so I wont have time to do the turns but maybe I will finish it some other time. Click the image to see it.
I have decided to called my animation for the Dance-Off Challenge Little Red Tiki Hood. Below is a work in progress preview, I still have to draw the dancer (not easy!) and also fine tuning some of the timing.
Here is the main background for the dance-off challenge entry, it is based on the art of Shag which I particularly like.
Ok here is the animatic for my entry to the Dance-Off Challenge:
I am working on an entry for the Dance Off animation challenge at the animation forum which is due on the 15th. Here is a little storyboard for the fun of it.
What’s a dance without a little bit of monkey business?
Here is an update on the dancer, I added a turn to make the loop a little bit more interesting.
What did I learn?
- It makes it a lot easier to draw the stick figure if I think of which leg is supporting the body and exerting force while the figure is turning.
