BELIEF - animatic 1st pass

video

When I was small [about 4-5 years old] I was getting very excited every time my family had guests and I just couldn't stop jumping from joy! And I remember my father laughed at me and commented on that with a bit of irony each time... I was very emotional kid and so it felt so daunting.. but in spite of that, I still couldn't stop bouncing !~~ XD"

DON'T LEAVE ME - animatic 1st pass

video

Some fast character sketches:





"It's not easy living in this world, but we want to feel happiness in order to continue smiling. In order to feel happiness, we love. When we love, we protect. To protect, we grow stronger. To grow stronger, we strive to be better. Each of us strives day by day. Little by little. 1, 2 step, step by step. Let's do what we can one little step at a time." ~Miyavi

Smaller image file size trick

Sometimes my software creates jpeg images with REALLY big file size, although they are 640x480. So what I do is : I open this big heavy jpeg image with simple Windows (MS) Paint and just Save it (CTRL+S). And close. Looks like nothing happened - the quality looks the same and everything, but the file size can be about 10 times smaller!

Just a little trick I use to make sure I don't upload too heavy files :)

Testing final "yatan" rig !~~

Finally I entered the testing/polish stage with my alter ego rig [following Ringling Animation School idea for the assignment - I think it's great to learn to be more aware of own body language and reactions]. I discovered few days ago that spine is not eager to rotate and so I rerigged it [double ribbon ik torso] this night [1h of sleep :P ]
Facial rig is fully joints-based cuz it gives me the most flexibility.
Now the poses libraries are waiting to be done.
