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.
More practice. Hard to get run cycles right.
Just been one of those periodic “why do I draw, this shit isn’t even fun” days, and I spent all day drawing nothing and rolling around. I try to avoid going to bed on a bad note, so I dug through my head and decided to try drawing what I found so fun that it got me into drawing in the first place.
Even if my interest in the show has gone down, I always give it props for getting me into art in the first place. That being said, I can’t draw consistent pony heads for shit :’)
Man fuck this shit.
More detailed sketches. Can you tell I like machines? hue
I liked this more as a sketch, ughghuhvhjgh. Also, cintiq colors are off even after calibration, booooo.
What am I doing with my life.
This took foreeeeever. Main point was the gun thing transformation, I animated the person afterwards so I didn’t think too much of the movement, which is why it looks wonky at times. Oh well.
Quick test with the Cintiq again. Still kind of iffy on it, even for animation. I’ll be using it a bit more extensively for about a week before I decide if I’m going to keep it or not. Main thing that bugged me was eye fatigue; the pixel density is super high, but that also means everything is tiny and makes my eyes tired as fuck.
Testing out my new Cintiq. It’s definitely a fine piece of technology, but I dunno if I can justify the $1000 price tag. I will need to use it more before I fully decide, probably with an animation test :P
