So far

So this is what I have so far. The last scene you see is not finished yet, obviously. But no worries! I'm having a lot of fun with flash and I'm sure I'll be finished before the end the day today with this scene (which is one of my favorites, so far).

Get Ready, Get Set, ....

I've gotten maybe 1/4 of the way done right now in my animation. So time wise I'm alright I think. Flash is pretty fun and easy to use.

This is a Rough of Idea of the title screen. So it's kind of crappy. But for right now I'm more worried about getting the animation done than showing off my impressive title screen creating talent.

The animation seems choppy and slow in this quicktime render...I don't know how to fix that, but just know that it doesn't move quite so awkwardly in realtime. I was thinking I might need to speed up the turn around animation of the slug (even though it's like SUPER slow in this render), but otherwise, so far so good. What do you guys think?

Tutorial 5

Lip Sync

This was really fun. I'll probably do this more often as I animate in Flash.

For some reason the video on the blog won't work correctly :( I'll try to fix it later.

Tutorial 4

Walk Cycle

So here it is. I had a little trouble with figuring out how to turn it into a symbol, but I think I finally understand. It's one of the things that is really easy and right in front of your face yet you just stare at it blankly like a dumbass thinking, "Uh....I don't get it....."

Here's the storyboard! Please comment on what cha think!

I was wondering if there were a better version of the ending than the one I had originally. So I talked to people and they helped me decide on changing the ending somewhat to be more entertaining than just "butt to face and reaction". I got a few ideas and I think I'm going to stick with the "butt to face and reaction" but add a butt imprint on the face and perhaps another buttman in the background to give the story a "to be continued (or repeated)" open ending.

Tutorial 3 Rotoscope

I really like the sketchy look of line as it moves to match the movement of the character. It makes me think of "Take on Me" music video. hahaha.

In class

slower version
