What started off as a fun little project to do on my free time, turned into art therapy. Been dealing with a lot of stress and this helped clear my mind for a bit.
Like the other animation, this is rotoscoped using a reference video I shot. This time around however, there is sound! Ooo. And lip syncing! Ahhh. And in-between frames! Zhdfbju. Which meant it took about twenty or so total hours to complete a 3 second animation :D Maybe, some day, I’ll animate something that’s 5 or, dare I even think it, 10 seconds long!
Btw, the audio is not mine. That is from Little Kuriboh’s Marik’s Evil Council of Doom.
I’m currently hiding indoors from the rain bands of Harvey (landfall south of me, only a flooding threat for me), so here’s an animation of a hurricane viewed from space. I love how they threw in the ISS.
I had the privilege to attend Laika’s 3-D Film celebration, Laika brought some on screen figures and prints from each on their films for viewing. It was amazing to be able to see the attention to detail that goes into every piece up close. #Photography is Important
Digital World of Our Future with This Fascinating 3-D Animation
There is no doubt that our world is changing in many ways. Internet and virtual reality has a tremendous influence on our day-to-day experience, as well as on other creative fields, such as art. Merging between digitally created vision with our usual objective environment is just a matter of time; in fact, this process has started long time ago. New devices, such as google glasses, are on their way of interlacing the material world with the endless virtual reality; video games are getting better and better in reсonstructing the details of our surroundings. There are even studies of the architecture and social relations withing the game world. 3-D technologies are offering a huge variety of ways to turn our vision of the environment upside down. And some artists are very much into it.
Meet Vernon James Manlapaz , 3-D artist and animator who took Instagram by storm with his realistic interventions into the usual cityscapes. Starting with simple animation, he quickly grew into a cartoon creator and visual storyteller.
“Being able to animate characters is exciting for me. I am inspired to go to work every day. Animating characters to punch, blast, fly, and spew fire—it’s awesome.”
Indeed, his animations are over the top good; but recent interest in ironical and humorous digital twists were meant to go viral. Abstract motives are inbuilt into local streets, transformers are helping to rescue a kitten on the roof and a tree fully grows within a second; all of these metamorphoses are making everything seem quite possible and real. While these short clever videos are certainly entertaining, they also reveal a very important tendency. We are living on the edge of the new era, era of virtual reality where digital and hylic will be equal and the boundaries of art will expand drastically. We just need to learn 3-D modelling.
@backstageleft this is a better shot to show how they have them mounted on bicycle helmets for the kids to wear.
Obviously, we have large scale 3-D printers in the school. The engineering teacher leave them out in the cad program and has been printing them for a couple months.
I’m not involved in the summer camp, but if I ran the zoo (animal pun intended) i’d add more to this for dimension, like feathers or something like that. But they do look pretty cool on their own as 3-D animation pieces.
It’s finally here!! It took me so long, but I finally finished it! ;w; As if the storyboard wasn’t painful enough, I just had to animate it. I’ve never animated anything this excessive before so it looks ok. Things look weird and a bit off as well. This was the first time I drew Fiddleford too so he doesn’t look that bad, I suppose. Nonetheless, I hope I did a decent job on this since I know little to nothing about animation. XD
