Animation Situation

Journal Entry: Thu May 2, 2013, 10:57 AM


I've been rushing at breakneck speeds to finish my animation in time for the official submission deadline tomorrow ... or, today, by now actually. However, there are still little fixes I want to make to Santiago's introduction scenes, as well as some revisions to the "finished" sequences with Louis and James, so I'm holding back on uploading the clips to Youtube.

Until then, have some progress shots!

It's not like you had plenty of time to work on this or anything.

Honestly, I don't know if I should feel that sorry for you.
I say this because you have posted quite a few silly deviations with full color and detail as opposed to working on your animation. I know those take a lot of time. Time you could've spent working on your animation.
I have watched plenty of people on DeviantART and out whom, when confronted with a giant animation file, they spend all of their time working on it. With W.I.P shots as deviations to placate their eager fans.
I'm not saying this to be mean.
I'm saying this because it seems that something that should've been your top priority-especially when looking at your rough draft demo reel- is kind of second priority.
Or perhaps you need to hone your time management skills more.

I only need to submit 3 minutes for my official deadlines, which is what I have done. The total animation itself is now nearing 10 minutes, and it's final lining and coloring will definitely have to be done at a much later date.

Animation is fun and I do enjoy it, but if my course has taught me anything, it's that illustration and comic art is what I prefer doing in the end.

Your are making no sense.
So at the time you wrote the journal your animation was 10 minutes long?
Then why are you in such a rush to fix things up at deadline?
Wouldn't you have you have fixed everything at the 3 minute mark at that point? Especially since you say that's the minimum amount you have to submit?
Why would you continue your animation beyond 3 minutes before deadline if you knew there were things to be fixed before deadline?

The full length of my animation is 10 minutes, but if you think I can animate three main characters, lip-synch them to dialogue, and complete full-color background for 10 minutes in our alloted three months you're out of your mind. Of the 10 minutes I have just over three minutes completed in sketch-lines, but based on feedback from an animator at LucasArts who came in to take a look at our work, I have some changes I want to make before what I've completed thus far is on display at the LASALLE Show.

I'm not sure what you're asking. Either way this goes, I want to see this animation finished, even though semester is officially over.

Gah, I am in love with that shot of Louis throwing back his hood! I'm absurdly excited to see the final animation.

Also, I've mentioned this before, but when your graphic novel happens I will literally be throwing money at you for it. Just so you know. :)

I can’t wait to see it! I’m very, very curious to see the end result.
Also I was kinda wondering. I Have great respect for your animation skills and work. If it is possible, could you upload an tutorial on youtube how you animate. What kind of tools you use and in what program, where do you start and what kind word of advice would you recommend to your followers if they want to practice animating?

That would be so awesome if could upload something like that in the future!
Keep up the awesome work!

Hey there,

I'm really no good with tutorials, but I use TVPaint Animation 10 Pro to animate and a wacom tablet. I animate the same as every other 2D animator does: two keyframes, and then inbetweens. I love using TVPaint because it's easy to drag frames around if the timing is wrong; I work at 12 fps, and usually have reference videos of myself/someone else to get the actions right.

I'm sure your teachers and class (if they see it too) will absolutely love it, just like all your watchers do! ^_^ And I was so happy when I heard you were planning to make a graphic novel with these characters <3 I'd be so sad if they went away after the project was finished so I really look forward to seeing the novel in the future!
