Walking the walk assignment

Originally animated on paper, scaned into photoshop for coloring and animated and put together in flash i can honestly say this piece was pain in the ass and although paper animation gives you an awsome sence of freedom, without the right hardware, like a digital SLR camera setup over a pegboard it just ends up being an extremly long process. But i will defnitly be doing a lot of main layout keys on paper and then scaning them into flash and using it to assist animation =) anyway hope you liked it... leave us a comment and let me know what you think

Animated hands and my inner child design

Up top design before animating my inner child which might sprout into a music video if my plate empties a little bit, i mean who doesn't love obese fat guys with massive saggy boobies effected by gravity and momentum to emphasize their true beauty

WILLVA hands
Just under 200 pictures of hands, drawn in about 5 solid hours of paper animation. So all put together it could still benefit from more frames, but lesson learnt, plan out smooth motion before jumping into key frames and inbetweens.

Gaining a more solid understanding of how to work my cartoons so that i can fully utilize the 12 principles of animation =) practice makes close to perfect eh =)

This has been my on going project for the past month and a bit, originally planed to have 5 scenes, but due to the deadline i was forced to cut out the dexters lab piece and was left with the 4, jetsons, pokemon, yogi bear and porkie pig =). although its still quite crude and can have so much more added to make it shimmer and shine I'm still quite happy with the end result =)

lesson learnt, biting of chewable pieces will allow me to focus on quality rather than quantity

Super Pets collaborative comic

Dear Animation comrades

Sharah the brilliant has been pushing the idea of a published collaborative comic for a little while now, and now seems a brilliant time to have a go.
The basic concept is super pets and will allow you to go nuts with your own creativity, the final goal being at least one published collaborative comic.

What you must do
Everyone interested must comment on this post.
By the end of the holidays should have a ruff storyboard of their comic complete, so 20 April.
The comic will be finally published on portriate A4 paper for easy reading =)
You can divide your page as you see fit but i'm going with average 9 blocks a page and the dividers are .5cm between the blocks and 1cm from the boarder. But you might not want borders, do as you please =) and enjoy

Start thinking and when you have an idea let me know so i can post it on "ZE LIST" =) oooh zelist

oh and fear not the logo will be changed =) if someone would like to design one that's fine as well =)
All contribution will be subject to contributor vote =)
Happy drawing
and happy holidays

lots of tender soft caring love -will

Olly: ManSpider (spider)
