Speed lines

Click to play

Any time I pick a comic book I'm always trying to figure out how to animate the images.Speed lines have been around for a while in moving images, but I have only seen the Japanese do it how it wold look like in a comic.

Used hair particles,made a few keyframes and rotated it in the same spot.
Going to add this as one of my effect shot in the Sci-fi short I making.

Painting with Polygons

Another blenderhead came across a SIGGRAPH paper about using stand alone 3d software to create a painterly style art.Others and myself started to see if it was possible with Blender.
Everyone uses Suzanne the monkey and I used Big buck bunny last test,so this time I'm using Jim from the Blender animation dvd.

Big Buck Bunny dance.

Click for video.

Lost audio when switch to Youtube.

I was watching a presentation with Mdot strange about how he did the motions for the characters in his music video,and thought that mabye I could do the same with the record to mouse function in blender.

The motions are bumpy in a few places, but it is only a test.

Killer inspiration

No art to show off today,busy working on storyboards for a animated short.
More on that later.

Just got done watching Killer bean forever,and I must say I'm impressed that Jeff Lew pulled off this one man animated movie.I watched the making of and there are tons of tips for animators wanting to follow this path.Even if your not into animating it's still entertaining to watch.
Well it's early in the morning and I'm felling sick from drinking two beers so I am out.
