Two-fer

Alright, I've gotta two-fer today.

First up, some random super hero type character who is secretly way into posing in pink ladies undergarments. This is still a WIP, I just haven't quite decided how to end it yet. I also need to go back in and do more inbetweens so I can get the major beats down for the action.





Next is an ongoing morph project that I've been working on. I've basically just been looking at the stuff on my desk and animating some of the more interesting looking objects. I'm also not sure how to end this one (to loop it or have it get faster and faster with some kind of dramatic finish), but I'm just gonna keep doing different objects and feel it out.

Hell yeah high five!



I'm thinking about doing some compositing with this thing in After effects, but I figured I'd post it up here in the meantime cause that may take a while (gotta clean up the lines and color it or it'll look like aasssss in front of a realistic background).

Morph rhymes with Worf

So I've been workin' on some newer things lately (newer for me at least), trying to get into a bit more of the classical character animation style. Going back through the Preston Blair book and all that stuff.

I think I was a bit too dismissive of this style back when I first saw it in school because I was really focussed on stuff that was new and not as derivative as this seemed at the time. I still think that a lot of animators fall into the trap of never breaking away from the "rules" (whether it be for character designs, writing, backgrounds, or the actual animation style), but animation is a fiendishly difficult and time consuming art form, so I can't hate on them too much.

Not that my stuff is so awesome and original anyways, haha.

I warmed up earlier this week with a little simple morph done in Flash featuring a magical tape dispenser that turns into an orange coffee mug whenever it wants to, which just happens to be right now. Hope you like it:
