So, this is part of an old animation exercise we had to do in class. It basically consisted of grabbing three shots of any piece of animation we liked (6 to 10 seconds) and basically breaking it down to the basics: highlight keyframes, character construction, action lines, arcs, timing charts, frame rate, etc. (Animation that was drawn “on ones” = “de a uno”, “on twos” = “de a dos”) And then we had to do an oral presentation about all that we had learned about it, the way it’s animated, and it’s relation to the context and the scene.
It was actually really fun and useful!! I recommend it for anyone who wants to try it!! I chose steven universe, the princess and the frog, and rise of the guardians.
Okay, time to kick off the ACEN photoshoots! This group was a blast to work with. I’ve been wanting to get Hemostuck shots for a very long time, and WOW did this group deliver! There’s more coming with the Trolls *cough* may contain sloppy makeouts *cough* but the Godheads get their own set! (Unfortunately Light and Rain had to leave before I got her portrait, but you’ll see her later!)
Oh and insert obligatory “Read Hemostuck NOW” flailing right here. What a fun series. ^_^
homestuck lands as ranked by how much i want to eat the colors
1. Land of Maps and Treasure (vriska)- fucking delicious? A+ color combo that also compliments Vriskas color scheme really well
2. Land of Light and Rain (rose)- very sweet. would probably be very sugary. a good planet for a good girl? light players have the best lands by far
3. Land of Little Cubes And Tea (nepeta)- also sweet! but i love the yellow in the sky its very warm and earthy and fits with the tea theme nicely
4. Land of Wind and Shade (post playing the rain) (john)- holy shit this blue is fantastic and amazing
5. Land of Caves and Silence (equius)- can you tell i love this like vriska cerulean blue? its so fucking good you guys. so fucking good.
6. Land of Wrath and Angels (eridan)- this land is all black and white but holy shit its a look. everything looks bright and fuzzy while also old and vaguely terrifying and i can appreciate that
7. Land of Pyramids and Neon (roxy)- good colors!!! the bright colors combined with the nice jeweled red are. real good? yes.
8. Land of Crypts and Helium (alive) (jane)- on its own a fairly neutral color scheme, but when it comes to life the pinks and oranges and yellows make it very tasty
9. Land of Tombs and Krypton (dirk)- a real good green and a real good red? and i love the fuckin swirly gas design across the sky. its soft?
10. Land of Frost and Frogs (jade)- the planet doesnt match up to what the actual ground level view looks like? planet colors are good and great but the ground level is too light and sweet for me. too washed out!!
11. Land of Quartz and Melody (aradia)- good colors overall but im not the biggest fan of the overall mixture? could be better
12. Land of Heat and Clockwork (dave)- a spicy land! but all in all the color palette is very limited and not like. super interesting to me? its red and black and everything inbetween and nothing else which is [yawn]
13. Land of Rays and Frogs (kanaya)- I FEEL REALLY BAD ABOUT THIS ONE SORRY. there is so much potential here that just, doesnt click for me. the blue is too deep and the green is too yellow and theres not enough else going on for me to feel better about this
14. Land of Dew and Glass (feferi)- hrrhhrkhkhh another one i feel bad about for the same reason. the green is still not the best and it takes over the look so much that it makes me not like the other colors either. RIP???
15. Land of Mounds and Xenon (jake)- not a fan of this green or this purple!!!! agh!!!!! another cool concept that just misses the mark
16. Land of Thought and Flow (terezi)- here we start getting into real bad territory,, the teal and the yellowy green and the desaturated mauve of the actual planet is bad enough but then you add in the bright beautiful colors from Terezi’s treehouse and its an overwhelmingly bad mix
17. Land of Pulse and Haze (karkat)- i get it andrew its symbolism the sky goes from deep red to grey but its so ugly!!!!!! its ugly andrew!!!!!! the purple clouds cant even save this hot mess!!!!!
18. Land of Sand and Zephyr (tavros)- This one is heartbreaking because if it wasnt for one color choice this would be up there with LoMaT and LoLaR, and the problem is the weird and bad barfy greenish brown that makes up most of the sand in what is otherwise a very warm and colorful landscape
19. Land of Tents and Mirth (gamzee)- A BAD LAND FOR A BAD MAN but seriously hussie not even some fun carnival colors for the carnival place????? everything looks like shit
20. Land of Brains and Fire (sollux)- hey andrew what the fuck
