Hey guys, I've been real bored over the break between semesters and I am continuously adding to my gigantic list of projects to finish (as if it weren't big enough).

This time I have this video to blame. At the end of the video he says make a video involving peanuts and raisins. So I took some time to think of something and of course I had to think of an animation, But this time not in 3D. This one will be 2D (but depending on how i feel I might try to incorporate both). Well this is how I'm coming along.


(I'm still making changes thus I didn't post the end.)


(I also found out that I will have to make changes to this too.)


I matched the colours together I the two characters moved at the same time. I didn't put them on one page because I think it would be pretty confusing considering they don't really have any characteristics to set them apart at the moment.

These are peanuts poses above

Those are raisins Poses below 

I plan to use these as guides later for when I draw each frame on separate pages. I find it easier to get the feeling of the movement when it's on one page then I can play with the timing later after I've drawn out each of the frames of the main poses.

Well until next time...

Let's just say I have a lot of time on my hands, and I can't live on the computer forever. so this is simply a product of boredom.

The next VFX assignment begins!!!!

So as some of you may or may not know I failed horribly on my last vfx assignment so I have to do it again. Hey it's a learning experience, better now while I'm still in school than later when I'm being paid for it.

This time I'm starting early (not really my style but I the an idea, a little excited and I had to get it out while i still could remember it), I got my storyboard done and some concept work started.


Panel 1: Character (most likely me) drops into the scene.
Panel 2: Character stands up and camera tilts and zooms in on the character then he powers up the glove as he says, "It's, garbage day" then starts walking .
Panel 3: Camera cuts behind the character as the character walks into the distance as he shoot plasma blasts (or what ever power comes out of his gloves, I haven't completely figured that out yet) at the garbage on the side of the road.

Glove Concept

I haven't fully finished this and it's really rough but at least I have something to start off with.

This seems some what like a lot of work but I have fewer classes this semester, so I'll have the time to learn to do the things that I don't know (like making the blasts actually look like blasts). Other than that I don't think I'll have much problems with the learning aspect which means I'll have more time to make mistakes (which always arise) and at the same time make this look really good.

I have already made started and almost finished the glove model (unfortunately Maya has been crashing on me so i gave up trying to get a picture today).

So, until next time...

Guess Who?

Hey ladies and gents, I randomly decided to take up a new little project during my break. based on the pictures below can you guess what it is? If you guess that I'm making a 3D model of myself the you win absolutely nothing!!!!

Now I present to you a video I call "Spit It Out"

I have finally finished my VFX assignment, and boy was that a task of countless all nighters. I guess that means I should really work on my time management. there are a few decisions I feel I should change but time has run out and I doubt I'll go back to it.
