Howdy there! If you follow this blog, it is safe to assume that you enjoy the content posted. Thank you kindly! It is also to be assumed that you may be aware of the recent commissions listing that was posted. Excellent! I must say this is going better than my last attempts at commissions, and believe me I am truly grateful. It’s a huge help to me, and I am honored that people like my work enough to buy it.
This is just a brief reminder that commissions are still up and running, and there are still three spots left. The money helps me afford things necessary to life, which include food, school related things, and art supplies, which is the most important material to this site. It is okay if you are not personally interested in purchasing an illustration at this time. However, doing something as small as sharing this post with others to help me get the word out is a huge benefit.
A commission that I did for the very awesome, very nice Erijah (center) on twitter of him and Ferrous (right) and Reagent (left) fighting for first comment on a post about llamas. Twitter is srs business, man! This was crazy fun to do, and I’m sort of proud of how those text bubbles came out!
If you are interested in a commission of your very own, then look at Commission Wishin’ for more information. Contact me if interested, please! 😀
Unintentionally bright flashy colors and I’m not sure if that warrants a warning of some sort but here’s one anyway
I forgot about the Wednesday updates for a bit so there’s no illustration today. There will be one next week somehow, and the rest of the year will probably consist mostly of WIP classwork photos (yay school :D). In the meantime, here’s an Udoli Julie head turn wip.The final version will have all of those awkward frames fixed so that it doesn’t look so gross and weird. As always critique and advice are more than welcomed. Thank you kindly
I’m trying to learn animation, and while The Animator’s Survival Kit is all fine and dandy and helpful, I’m the type of person who needs outside help when it comes to learning things. That means asking tons of questions, asking for several visuals, and of course, having someone personally dissect and shred my work apart just so that I can know how to fix my obvious mistakes. Now Youtube was nice enough to have hundreds upon hundreds of videos that could answer my questions and tell me to do that and not this, but at the end of the day it’s still nice to have a live human really tear into my work.
So I have a few questions for all of you animation students and professionals out there:
What am I doing wrong?
How can I improve?
Is there a bit of a thing that I keep messing up on
Can anyone explain the midpoint thing in The Animator’s Survival Kit? I get it to a point, and it is something we’ve done in class, but how do I use it to get the exact same size and length of an image? It’s confusing.
I understand the point of an X sheet, but how exactly do I apply it to the animation itself?
Is it too early to start worrying about any of these things?
