What's in the Box - Revisions


I don't think we're gonna get more time to work on this, so I'll have to see if I can revise it more later on. There's still many problems with it, but I need to go work on Kaveh's stuff now since I spent all day trying to figure this out. Tried to make him/her look around to make sure no one was there before she decided to jump on it to cover it up.

Inner dialogue to refresh memory:
Aww man... who left this lying around?
(walks to box) .... why do I have to clean this up...
(looks in) eh?
OMG!!11!1one! Graaa~! No one must see this!

Weekly art pics

My weekly images. :D

What's in the box - Keyframe animation

EDIT 10/12/08: Taking movie down to make more space.


Rough key frames that are a little late. :( I wasn't able to do as many keys as I wanted near the part that mattered (i.e the part where he/she gets to box). Was having too much fun with the before part, haha.

What's in the box - rough keys

"Who left this mess in the middle of the floor?"
*walks over*
What's in the box? Embarrassing personal photos that no one must see!

My composition.

Ball Toss 2nd Final (Now with more final!)


Well, with what time I had, here's the final the second time around. Added a small beginning, and fixed some frames here and there. Added a bit more stretch/exaggeration in for the toss. It's still not perfect though, but I'm running low on time. T_T

What's in the Box? Character design and Posing/Key framing

Here's some images of my character design. Mostly it's images of the poses and some key framing that I'll be using, as well as experimenting with different expressions.
It's supposed to be that she doesn't want to go and deal with what's in the box, but preps herself mentally and walks with determination towards the box to just get it over with. When she comes to the box, she'll be surprised and then eventually nostalgically happy to find that there was something in the box that she hasn't seen in a long time.... something like that is the plan. XD;;
I intend to post some key frames up today.. if all goes as planned. But we'll see if I can get it up before 6:00...

318 images for the week

A few pics from Art 318

Not very good in comparison to others. T_T Must dust off the rustiness.

Ball Toss Final (but still not really final T_T )

EDIT 10/12/08 - taking down for more space.


Okay, so as I'm running out of time (I have to be somewhere else that is not home), I have to turn this assignment in a few hours early. I need more frames in there, mostly for the end to refine it and make it actually look decent...

My mom previewed it and told me she does a funny wiggle thing at the end, so I took out one frame to make it less wiggly. Also, I need more frames to give it better timing. The timing isn't very good at all.

Meanwhile I also have a lot of work to do with Kaveh's assignments. I'm having trouble with my layers in that I want to add wavy tv lines, but idk how to do that without getting rid of either a) the color of the hologram or b) the transparency of it. If anyone has tips on how they're doing their hologram, it'd be appreciated. I haven't gotten to work on it much... :(

Anyways, as always, let me know if this link doesn't work.

1st animation thinger of the semester. Ball toss rough!

*edited 9/14/08* Had to remove due to space, but the final one after is above.


This is a rough animation. I haven't even gotten to the end yet, but I think I need to post whatever I can by today at 5 or 6pm, and I wasn't sure if I would encounter any uploading issues etc., thus here I am posting at 4pm. I'm missing a bunch of inbetweens here and there, and of course I'm missing the actual throw of the ball off screen. However, before I continue further, I think I need to check and see if what I've done so far is generally on the right track. ^_^;;

I was having a lot of trouble getting this one down I think, so any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Also, let me know if the link doesn't work.
