Struttin' to some cool music!





Yeah well here is a little thing I worked on yesterday... I had been meaning to study and copy the 10X Double Bounce Walk from Flip the Frog animation tutorial that John K so generously put up on his Blog ages ago,


so I took it, studied it and now I feel a bit closer to understanding how this animation thing works...



looking at my walk though I see that Flip the Frog has more of a bounce and that I should have exagerated a little bit more the poses,maybe distortioned the form a little more... but really I wasn't ready to do that... because I am only starting to understand the mechanics if the animation.... but I will repeat this walk and apply it to whole range of characters!!! it's the best WALK there is! everybody should walk like this!

The great music is from Hawaiian Steel Guitar Classics. By Sol K. Bright.

KAFRE TEATRE


On top here is the First of my attempts to colour the poster, as you can see I went bazerk on it with colour... I thought it was too computery, so I went for a more old fashioned limited colour poster, I still don't know which one I like more though... I chose the later one because it was easier to work with, my computer couldn't hack the wight of the first, also I think if I had painted it by hand I would probably like it even more!!! anyway this computer inking and stuff, I'm not much of a fan! I'll stick to raw materials!

KAFRE TEATRE 2009

It's that time again... Kafre Teatre TIME!, but this time I have decided to try some new stuff out... The drawing above is the sketch for the poster.
So... I read in Brian Romero's Blog about inking in Adobe Illustrator, and I thought that that was kind of interesting, then John K said something about getting a job cleaning Jim Smith drawings, which I reackon are awsome!! hehehe.... so I gave it a go but because I'm a bit of computer neanderthal I cleaned them up using a pencil and a light box... yeah!?, I had a look at the people that John K was talking about and I noticed that they all had used Illustrator as well, so I thought let's give this a go, so my brother in law who's a bit of computer junky, brought me a copy of illustrator and a kind guy that I know that is a computer graphics illustrator, gave me his pen tablet thing which he didn't need, so I've been playing around with it a bit, first I did some Flash animation stuff with the pen... and now I'm having a go at inking with illustrator... I think it's looking pretty good... but it's bloody time consuming and this sitting infront of the coputer all day is driving me a bit out of my mind!

Hope you like it, I like how it's looking but like everything now a days, computer's give you the possiblity to be too much of a perfectionist and that kind of bores me, but hey it's good to learn things.



Here aree some close ups... when I finish it... I'll give you a geeze at how it turns out...





see ya!
