the Trap:

well, week 26. this is another quick 3hr-ish stop-mo test. just mucking around with a cobbled together rig. it's all basically straight-ahead animation with FrameThief and a USB Web camera. not fancy, but it's a nice change from drawing.

Sneek : Old School

week 25, KEEP IT SIMPLE! well, i took it back to the old world, a single light, a USB camera, an armature, an about 3hr.
it's all about dusting of the old muscles and doing something SIMPLE. this turned out to be a good test for this armature, as i moved it around i found several articulation points that it was missing,(mainly in the shoulders and hips) i could add more joints or just live with it.... live with t i think

I'm Bored : the FINAL

week 24: well, here it is,.. finally, a "simple" idea gone wrong. i foolishly thought animating some TYPE would be easier than drawing every frame, and i'd get to use a new feature i hadn't tried in FLASH..... i could have done this much simpler but "planning" is not always something i take the time to do on these 1 WEEK ideas, it's more "think it, sleep on it, DO IT" and that's no way to animate.

well here it is,.. now i must sleep

I'm Bored : wk.2

week 23, and i'm posting just a partial piece again, ... this one is getting away from me. seemed like a fun "little" exercise to try TYPE and SOUND but it's taing on a life of it's own and honestly i just want it to be over. but in the spirit of trying to "care" (love) each little piece i will give this idea 1 more week before i just call it DONE... enjoy
