Look at her go.

I’ve been on hiatus for animation because I wanted to brush up on my painting, which had been neglected for too long. I’ll be starting up with animation practice again soon now that I’ve had some time to catch up.
Now you too can draw disfigured people like me. Just kidding, anon asked me what my process for figure drawing is, so here it is. Whoever asked me this, you should probably find a method that works for you. There is no “right” way, although each has their own advantages/disadvantages. I like to work from the torso out, personally.
Found a request I forgot about that I did for /a/ and cleaned it up a bit. Someone asked me to do a “flat chested oni,” which I thought was cute, instead of what you’d normally expect on 4chan…
Yeah not the best art day.
I’m ashamed at how long this took me. All I wanted to do was try more “interesting” camera shots. Turns out, animating slow, precise movements is really hard to do (the first part). The parallax part took about 2 minutes since motion tweens make life easy. I want to go back to animating people flailing around, but I will start practicing these “mundane” movements too since they’re important to be able to do. I think the most engaging animations have a very well done mixture of slow and fast paced sequences, and I would like to be able to animate something like that one day.
Jesus, I was gonna do so much more FX practice but I spent over 3 hours just trying to figure out a way to save gifs without raping the quality. I tried changing so many settings, googling everything, downloading swf to gif conversion software, etc. 3-4 hours to save a 30 minute test, ugh. Luckily I won’t have to waste that much time next time. If you’re interested in the fix of saving high-res gifs from flash (and the problems with it), read on.
Reblogged from my other blogggg. I had shit written on here but I deleted the post somehow and I’m too lazy to rerwite. Basically it’s a speedpaint that I liked the outcome of, compared to that hideous piece of crap posted a bit earlier today.
I fucking hate this shit, but I spent too long on it to not post it. Decided to put it on this account because it’s too embarrassing to post on the other. Anyways, it’s for the CHOW#4 “Hive Queen” challenge. I had a coherent idea at the start, but as the hours passed, it slowly changed into god know’s what. I just want to stab my eyes out right now.
This is basically what I looked like while animating this. Not animating for a week has left me rusty and I hate that. Gotta play catch up now, sigh.
I returned the Cintiq because it just didn’t seem worth it for me, so I’ve been tabletless for about a week. Got an intuos5 instead, and it just got here today so I can stop being a lazy asshole, but I’ve had some difficulty adjusting to a traditional tablet again. Gonna try to animate again.
After hearing I was rejected from the CSE department, I’ve had absolutely no motivation. This is basically what I’ve been doing the past few days, aside from trying to miserably get back into drawing and studying. Hopefully I’ll get over it soon.
Ran out of steam towards the end; did this all in one sitting so my brain just couldn’t process anything. As a result I couldn’t quite get the fluid effect right, so I’m going to do some effect animations later as practice.
