Animation Class!

So I have begun to time out my A Film for class. It's about a seagull that wants to eat a cheesy poof but then is attacked by other seagulls and left for dead. All in 15 seconds. Anyway it will be completely animated by hand on cells so I'm trying to get it all relatively easy as it needs to get done THIS MONTH. So here is a little animatic I did in flash today to work out timing and staging. Ignore the crappy drawings haha. Let me know if you have any ideas about how to make it better!

I also worked out the levels. The goal is to keep the levels LOW! Max of 6 being shot at a time.

BG - Beach, sky, umbrellas. (Top pegged)
A - Hero Seagull and cheesy poof(Bottom pegged)
B - Flying Seagulls (Bottom Pegged)
C - Bouncing seagulls (Bottom Pegged)
UL_OL - Fat man (Top pegged)
OL - Ball (Top pegged) and another cell of just the cheesy poof before the seagull picks it up.

This should work out as then I can pan the BG, UL_OL, and ball without having to worry about my walk cycle on the seagull and stuff. I'm excited! Who wants to help paint? 360 frames on 2's that should be around 180 frames, some of which are cycles so I'm gonna go with like 100 or so actual cells to paint.

I am going to die. lol

Work in Progress

I am all inspired by Pascal Campion (here's his blog!) and his use of light with flat colors. LOVE! So I am venturing into the foray as well. So far it's been fun! I can't wait to get this done, but right now I need SLEEPS! Especially since I have to be up for more orientation tomorrow! :)

Some arts from recently. One after being inspired from visiting Stuart NG's shop and 2 from helping out some other film guy with a kiddy catalog for his thesis film.

Red Riding Hood FUN!

Working on some Little Red Riding hood character stuff for fun. And it's helping my flash skills improve! Score! And as usual all color is lost in the upload to internet land. Alas I need to remember to use web safe colors when putting stuff up here haha.

Logo stuff

My friend wanted some "crappy stick figures", seriously, as the design for her flyers for a marathon event. So here is the design for the slogan...

If you're not first, at least you're not them.
